Welcome Middle-School and High-School Boys!

Being a cub scout is not required - in fact, many of our top-ranking scouts joined anywhere between 6th and 9th grade. To learn more, please join us for any Tuesday night troop meeting at 7 p.m. in the Smith Scout Lodge (when school is in session) at Chapelwood United Methodist Church. Please contact Asst. Scoutmaster Eddington  or Mrs. Jennifer Mikes for more information.

Our Program
The Troop 641 program is focused on Adventure, Leadership, and Service:

  • Adventure is the outdoor fun that is fundamental to boy scouting: camping, hiking, zip lining, bouldering, climbing, rappelling, boating, shooting, fishing, and cooking. 
  • Leadership is one of the skills that scouting teaches best: boys learn how to organize, motivate, and lead groups of their peers. Younger scouts begin with citizenship and teamwork skills. As they advance in the program, they are given the opportunity to hold “Positions of Responsibility” that increase in complexity as their skills and experience increase.
  • Service is the way we give back to the community, both as individual scouts and as a troop.  We have dozens of service opportunities each year, giving scouts many opportunities to focus on helping others.

We look forward to showing you why Troop 641 is an exciting place for boys to learn and grow!
