Here at Bigfork Community United Methodist we are proud to support Scouts BSA with an all-female unit. They meet here at the church weekly to build their leadership skills while developing a sense of adventure and personal growth all while having fun!
What is Scouts BSA?
Scouts BSA is a year-round program for youth 11-17 years old that provides fun, adventure, learning,
challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves. For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America is open to young women as well as young men, all of whom will have the chance to earn Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout. In Scouts BSA, young men and women go places, test themselves, and have one-of-a-kind adventures that can’t be found anywhere else.
Scouting Builds Leaders
Former Scouts serve on the boards of global corporations, walk the halls of the White House and have been known to go hiking on the moon. Life lessons learned in Scouting will help all of its members make good decisions throughout life. The Scout Slogan is Do A Good Turn Daily. That means doing something to help others each day without expecting anything in return. It implies that Scouts do their part in caring for the community and the environment. Fostering a strong STEM education is our best opportunity to boost the spirit of innovation. The Boy Scouts of America developed their STEM program to excite and expand a sense of wonder in our Scouts.
