Pleasant Run Presbyterian Church has been associated with Scouting for 60 years! In 1960, Boy Scout Troop 640 was established with PRP as the chartered organization. Over the years, boys have participated in scouting activities where they learn values-based leadership, conduct service projects, and train in outdoor skills. Troop 640 has seen 30 boys advance to the highest scout rank of Eagle Scout. In 2019, as part of Scouting’s quest to become more inclusive, Troop 1640 was established. This is a troop for girls, who also learn leadership and outdoor skills while working toward the rank of Eagle Scout. Current membership is 8 boys in Troop 640, and 7 girls in Troop 1640. The national parent organization is now called Scouts BSA.The program is available to youth grades 6-12. For more information, contact John Brugger (Troop 640) firstname.lastname@example.org OR Jessie Ibold (Troop 1640) email@example.com
PRP also serves as chartered organization for Cub Scout Pack 5. Cub scouting is an introduction to the world of scouting for kids kindergarten-5th grade. Pack 5 is a “family” pack which means both boys and girls can become members. There are 12 children in Pack 5. For more information contact Eric Kelbley (Pack 5) firstname.lastname@example.org
To commemorate and honor the long-standing relationship between PRP and Scouting, Scout Sunday is celebrated each February. Scouts participate in the Sunday worship service. Following the service, a pancake breakfast is held where the Scouts serve the congregation and thank them for their support.
