“Scouting is fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts [youth] in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.” In a fun, adventure-filled and nurturing environment, Shandon hosts both Cub Scouts for kindergarteners-5th graders and Scouts for 6th-12th graders helping young people develop character, leadership skills and citizenship as well as self-worth. The United Methodist Church long ago recognized that Scouting offers another setting for ministry to children and youth. Troops are open to new Scouts, transferring Scouts and anyone interested in learning more about the Scouting program.
Scout Troop 37 has a rich history. The Scout Charter was initiated April 1, 1948, making the Troop 70+ years old. The Troop is part of the Congaree District and the Indian Waters Council, and is honored that over 130 young people have completed the rank of Eagle Scout while a member of Troop 37.
