Boy Scouts & Cub Scouts
Boys are taught love of God and love of country and are trained for service to both. When was the last time your boys were outdoors on an adventure with their friends and learned about nature and how to take care of the world around us? The Boy Scouts are standing by to help you teach your sons to fend for themselves and help others. We think it is some of the most important education and training of their lifetimes.
