Scouts

 

AUMC sponsors a Boy Scout Troop,and a Cub Scout Pack . Each are a part of Atlanta Area Council of BSA and the Mountain Lake District.
Both are active groups on the local, district and council levels. “Tim Goodwin is the Chartered Organization Representative, the liaison between AUMC and the Scouts. Call him at 770-974-3312 for further information.

Boy Scout Troop 116
Membership in Troop 116 is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light Award or have completed the fifth grade, or who are 11 through 17 years old. The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness by focusing on a vigorous program of outdoor activities. Troop 116 meets every Monday at the Scout Hut on Lake Acworth.
The meetings are year round, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. The Scouts earn merit badges and progress in rank as they learn,do service projects, and play.

Troop 116 goes on a camping trip once a month. Opportunities are provided for the Scout to earn everything he needs for his Scouting experience. Many Scouts from T116 have made exciting trips to Philmont Scout Reservation, a 10-day backpacking trek in New Mexico, to Seabase, a sailing adventure in the Florida Keys and to the Canoe Base, a canoe trip from Minnesota across into Canada. There is a National Jamboree in Fort Hill, VA, that occurs every four years, and some Scouts have even been on trips to other countries.

Again, Scouting is a family affair. Adult leaders are needed to provide the guidance and teach leadership to the Scouts.

Cub Scout Pack 611
Pack 611 is Cub Scouts for boys from first through fifth grade. The first graders are Tiger Cubs and must have a parent with them at every meeting. Tigers are a fun way to break into scouting. Second and third graders are Wolves and Bears, then the fourth and fifth graders are first and second year Webelos (We'll be loyal Scouts.)

Pack 611 meets during the school year on Tuesday, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m., in the Family Life Center at the church. They have several summer activities, but they do not have weekly meetings during the summer. Soon after the beginning of school each fall, there is a School Night for Scouting, where representatives go to the elementary schools in the area and introduce Scouting and register new Scouts.

Cub Scouts is a wonderful, exciting introduction to Scouting! The program teaches a wide array of topics and gives boys many opportunities to expand their knowledge and increase their skills. Scouting is a family activity; the whole family participates in many of the activities, and many adults are needed to provide a worthwhile program. Training is provided on a local level for adult leaders.

Again, Scouting is a family affair. Adult leaders are needed to provide the guidance and teach leadership to the Scouts.
