Boy Scouts



Boy Scouts meet on Monday nights at 7:00 p.m. in the Scout Room.


Scouting has been a part of Central United Methodist Church since 1919.


The first Boy Scout Troop was chartered and has been meeting at Central United Methodist Church for almost 100 years.


Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.


The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to


  • Try new things.
  • Provide service to others.
  • Build self-confidence.
  • Reinforce ethical standards.


While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.


Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost.


Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made

Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts Pack 4 meets on Wednesdays from 6-7 p.m. at CUMC during the school year (Asheville City Schools calendar).

Beginning in first grade as Tigers, the boys progress through the program as Wolves in 2nd grade, Bears in 3rd, Webelos 1 in 4th and Webelos 2 in 5th.    


Cub Scouting is fun!

No matter what grade you are in, first through fifth, it can be a blast. Do you like to learn by doing? This is just the place. You can learn to tie knots, set up a tent, or shoot a bow and arrow (archery). Have you ever cooked a meal on a campfire? Sent a secret code to a buddy? Built a birdhouse? Hiked? Earn rewards for doing these things in Cub Scouts.


Cub Scouts Belong to Packs and DensBoys img

As a Cub Scout, you will be part of your own pack.
The pack is divided into smaller groups called dens. Each den has about six to eight boys. All of the Cub Scouts in your den are in the same grade and may even go to the same school.


The Cub Scout pack belongs to a church, a school, or some other group of people in your community or neighborhood. This group makes sure your pack has good adult leaders, a place to meet, and exciting things to do. The group gets help from the Boy Scouts of America, which is part of Scouting around the world.


Cub Scouts Do Things and Go Places

Have you been to the local police station and talked to the policemen on duty? Or visited the fire station and sat in the driver's seat of the pumper truck? Or visited the local TV station and sat in the news anchor's chair? These are some of the places you might go with your den or pack.


You might also build a pinewood derby car and race it on the track, build a sailboat or trimaran and race it in the raingutter regatta, or build a spaceship and race it to the stars in the pack space derby.


Cub Scouts Earn AwardsPinewood Derby img

Each time you complete an accomplishment or learn a new skill, you will be rewarded. Sometimes the reward is a loop for your belt, a pin, or a patch. Sometimes it is a smile on your parents' faces to see you grow and learn
