SCOUTING

Cub Scout Pack 577


Cub Scouting in Pack 577 is a family oriented part of the Boy Scout program designed for boys who are in the first through fifth grades. Pack 577 was founded at Oak Grove UMC in 1967 and is supported by the church via the Oak Grove United Men’s Fellowship. Currently the Pack has 180 active Cub Scouts and over 50 adult volunteers. The boys are broken down into “dens” that meet a few times a month(typically in Scout Hall located on the church campus or a family home), and the entire Pack meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month in Fellowship Hall from 6:30 to 7:45 (September to May). Our Cubmaster is Dan Bridges (dan@bridges-family.com) and our Committee Chairman is Ben Bryant (williambbryant@gmail.com). Please feel free to contact either with any questions. Annual registration occurs each August, but new Cub Scouts are welcome to join at any time.

Boy Scout Troop 77


In early 1950, members of the Oak Grove UMC Community saw a need for the youth program to help with character development, citizenship training, and mental and physical fitness. The Boy Scouts of America granted a Charter to the Church on May 31, 1950 for Troop 77. Today Oak Grove’s Men’s Fellowship sponsors Boy Scout Troop 77. The Troop averages nearly 100 Scouts and reaches all parts of the Community. Over the past 65 years, thousands of boys have enjoyed Oak Grove’s Scouting program, with several hundred Scouts earning the Eagle Scout Award.

Venturing Crew 77 at Oak Grove is a program of the Boys Scouts of America that allows young people to test their limits, meet new friends, and make a difference. The youth members (the “Crew”) are in charge of creating the annual program, full of whatever adventures, fun and challenges they desire. The Crew decides what they want to do, either focused on a specific area — such as camping or service projects — or doing a variety of activities.

Venturing is slightly different from Boy Scouting, in that Crew members must be 14 and can be members until they’re 21. Crew 77 is co-ed and has a number of young men and women who’re active members. What can you do in Venturing? Anything you want! The Crew brainstorms ideas, decides on what they want to do and then does all the planning (with adult advisors there to guide the youth and make sure everyone’s safe). Please visit our website for more information www.Venturecrew77bsa.com.
