A Scout is Reverent

A Scout is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties. He respects the beliefs of others. The 12th point of the Scout law is a part of every level of Scouting from 1st grade Tiger Cub Scouts to Eagle scouts in the Boy Scout troop, as well as their leaders.
 
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.
 
For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
 
The United Methodist Church is one of the largest sponsors of Scouting in the US, with over 10,000 units, and over 350,000 registered members. Rome First has had a long history of supporting Scouting in the Rome / Floyd County area for over 30 years, and has helped hundreds of boys "Be Prepared" for life.


Cub Scouts

Cub Scouting is a family program geared towards boys in 1st – 5th grade with age appropriate activities that stress duty to God, country, family and community. Each age group is led by at least one or two parent leaders that meet together for a activity once a week for about a hour. Basic camping, outdoor skills and appreciation for the outdoors are a part of the Cub Scout program but is not the main emphasis.
 
Each age group advances through a number of achievements throughout the year and eventually earns a badge for completing those achievements.
 
Boys that complete the program graduate to the more rigorous Boy Scout program for boys age 11-18. Boys that complete the Cub Scout program are better prepared for Boys Scouts and are able to better participate in that program.
 
Cub Scout Pack 113 meets on Tuesday nights at 6:30pm during the school year with a gathering in the Wilder Center.
 
Several church members are active in scout leadership. Drew Conrad is the current Cubmaster.

Boy Scouts

The Boy Scouts program is for boys ages 11-18 and the troop presently has more than 75 registered scout and 20+ registered leaders. The program helps boys gain practical life skills, combined with fun, and regular outdoor experiences.

Boy Scout Troop 113 has a long and proud history of producing leaders in the community with character and commitment. In the past 20 years, more than 150 boys from Troop 113 have achieved the rank of  Eagle, the highest achievement in Scouting.

Each scout is committed to do community service hours in order to advance through the program. Each Eagle candidate must plan and execute a service project that works to improve or assist the local community or an organization.

The troop meets on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm, year-round in the Scout room on the 3rd Street side of the church.

Many of the scouts and scout leaders are members of Rome First UMC. Andy Davis is the current scoutmaster and Thad Watters is assistant scoutmaster. For more information, contact Andy at adavis@brinson-askew.com or Thad at effieW1@aol.com.
