The Boy Scouts of America - Troop 61 emphasizes self-confidence, leadership, and service to others. The objective is to develop character, citizenship, and personal fitness through outdoor programs, positive adult role models, and setting and achieving goals. Scouts learn useful lifetime skills on their progression up through the Boy Scout ranks to Eagle. Activities include weekend camping, canoeing, an annual one-week summer camp, and a long-term high-adventure camp every few years.
Immanuel’s scouting program is available to boys 11 and older in the Immanuel congregation and the community. Troop 61 meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month at Immanuel from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Contact Bill Schultz for more information.
