Asbury United Methodist Church is host to the oldest, continuous Scout troop west of the Mississippi River. Founded in 1923, Troop 24 has been an integral part of the ministry here at Asbury. Moreover, Scouting in general plays an important role in the community. Whether as a cub scout or boy scout, boys learn the importance of integrity and value of leadership. Through the program, our hope is to build “a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.”
Below you will find some information on when our the Scouts gather. Also, you will find a contact form if you are interested in learning more about the program or getting your child involved in Troop or Pack 24!
Cub Scouts meets weekly for boys ages 6 – 10 (GRADES 1-5). Cub Scouts experience fun, wear cool uniforms, take
great field trips, play games, build things, learn about animals, all while developing a love for God and their country. They can do weekend family camping and attend day camp in June.
Boy Scouts meet weekly at Asbury. Beginning at age 11 or finishing the 5th grade, boys can be very active in service to others and outdoor fun and adventures and can attend summer camp. The program instills God-based values, ethical character, citizenship, and leadership development.
