CUB SCOUTS, BSA SCOUTS & VENTURING – BATTLEFIELD DISTRICT, NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM COUNCIL, BSA

Cub Scout Packs, grade K-5

Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family.  In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.

BSA Scouts, youth 11-17

Scouts BSA is the traditional Scouting experience for youth in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout. NOTE: Beginning in February 2019, this program is transitioning to include both young men and young women.

Venturing – Co-ed 14-20

Explore passions, make friends, discover the world. You’re always looking for an adventure. Rappelling a cliff. Perfecting your shot. Designing a robot. Kayaking into the sunset. Exploring your faith. Volunteering at an animal shelter. The choice is yours!  Venturing is youth-led and youth-inspired. You’ll acquire life skills and gain experiences while having a blast.

SUMMER CAMPS are available for Cubs and BSA Scouts.  Financial assistance available.

‘SHIP’ YOUTH MINISTRY – GETTYSBURG PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

The High School Ministry, ‘SHIP,’ meets at the church on Sundays from 5:30 to 7pm.
We seek to be a safe place where we will grow together in faith, friendship and fellowship with God and one another.

During the school year we have a mid-week discipleship group called “The 12” where we investigate the Bible, check in on how our week has been going and grow together in friendship.

Workcamp, a one week long summer mission trip to repair homes of low income people somewhere in the US, is the annual climax of the High School year.
