Scouting

Cub Scout Den 105, Scouts BSA Troop 13 for Boys and Scouts BSA Troop 12 for Girls are part of the youth ministry of Highland Park United Methodist Church.

Troop 13 and Troop 12 both meet at 7:00 to 8:30 pm in Dawson Hall on Monday nights in their respective Troops. The Scouts are divided into patrols and each patrol elects a leader. Patrol leaders meet regularly with the adult leaders to make sure that plans for the troop activities are complete.

Both Troops go on regular camp outs and outings, including the Klondike Derby, summer camp, community service projects and other District events. They have fundraisers to help scouts with camp expenses. Every February they host a Chili Supper at Highland Park UMC. Profits from the Chili supper are used for operating expenses and camping equipment. They also sell popcorn, burritos and fresh Christmas wreaths. Donations are welcome!

Pack 105 is a Family Pack, meeting as a whole on the last Tuesday of the month from 7:00 to 8:00 pm in Dawson Hall. Each February they hold a Blue and Gold Banquet to honor the Scouts and their parents.

Pack 105 Dens meet on Tuesday nights from 7:00 to 8:00 pm (Webelos Dens meet from 7:00 to 8:30 pm) . The pack participates in the Klondike Derby, Pinewood Derby, summer day camp and popcorn sales.
