First Methodist Carrollton charters three Boy Scouts of America Scouting units: Pack 121, Troop 121, and Crew 121. The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Our Cub Scout program is a fun and educational experience concerned with values. Besides providing a positive place where boys can enjoy safe, wholesome activities, Cub Scouting focuses on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service. Pack 121 is an energetic Pack that offers a variety of events and learning experiences. We race pinewood derby cars, camp, play games, shoot BB guns, learn new and exciting skills and much more. Our Pack also participates in the local community and gives back by donating our time to cleaning up the property of First Methodist Carrollton. No matter what grade your son is in, first through fifth, Cub Scouts is a blast!
