Boy Scouts…

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. Pitman United Methodist Church is the chartering organization for Troop 55 and Pack 218.  An active leadership group and troop committee adults support the Scout program that meets Monday evenings during the school year from 7:00-8:30 PM. The troop encourages boys to advance in rank through the completion of merit badges, leadership, and service and to date,67 boys have earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Active CUB Scout dens and pack (Pack 218)  also meet on Monday nights.

 Girl Scouts…

Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) is the largest organization for girls in the world. Our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Through activities in science and technology, business and economic literacy, and outdoor and environmental awareness, Girl Scouting provides girls with opportunities for fun and friendship while fostering the development of leadership skills and self-esteem. Although at other times, troops of several of the program levels have met at Pitman United Methodist Church, currently one troop meets one afternoon a week during this school year.
