Scouting

Cub Scouts

Pack 1 is an active Cub Scout Pack, focused on teaching and learning outdoor skills, citizenship and personal development for boys in grades 1-5. The pack is closely connected with Boy Scout Troop 1 and has a fully-trained and devoted leadership team.

In addition to occasional pack meetings and annual events like Pinewood Derby and regular service projects, we camp several times each year as dens and as a pack.

There is a den for each grade level that meets on Sunday afternoons at 3:00 p.m. in the Pack 1 Cub Scout Hut, located at 415 N. Lumpkin Street.

To learn more about a den or events available for your child, visit our webpage or contact Cubmaster Nat Carmack.

Boy Scouts 

Troop 1 has been continuously chartered by Athens First United Methodist for nearly 80 years and serves boys who are in grades 6-12. It is an active and growing Boy Scout unit that is led by the boys with the mentoring and support of a strong Troop Committee. Troop 1 Scouts camp monthly, attend a week of summer camp each summer, and regularly participate in District and Council events including contingents to Philmont Scout Ranch and National Jamborees. A high percentage of Troop 1 Scouts earn religious medals in their faith and attain the rank of Eagle Scout. 

Troop 1 meets on Tuesday nights at 7:00 p.m. in the Scout Hut at 415 N. Lumpkin Street across from the church. For additional information, contact Scoutmaster Chuck Hanna.

Venturing

Venturing is a co-educational program of the Boy Scouts of America for youth/young adults who are 14 – 20 years of age.  Venturing is youth-led and directed.  Crew 1 completed its first year of active participation in 2013-2014 with activities including kayaking, climbing, skating, hiking, biking, and organizing a Soup Supper for the needy.

Crew 1 is organizing for next year (2014-15) with activities to include whitewater kayaking, a trip to Sapelo Island, and other activities to be selected by crew during summer planning.  Crew 1 is preparing for a 12-day hike at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico in summer 2015, and will be fundraising to support registration, travel, and gear.

For more information about Crew 1, contact President Parrish McWhorter or advisors Amy Atao and Marcus Fechheimer.
