Middle School and High School students meet on the bottom level of the Broyles Center in our Teen Room. Go to the lower floor of the Broyles Center. At the end of the hall past the library and bathrooms, go down the stairs to access the Teen Room.

Chapel Scouts

img_1410Big Canoe Chapel actively supports Scouting Programs for the Youth in our community by being their Chartering organization and providing a place for the many groups to meet. It is not necessary to be a Chapel member to participate.

Scouting offers a broad range of activities that are designed for the interests of girls and boys and takes advantage of the wonderful natural environment we enjoy at Big Canoe. It’s divided into Troops based on age.

They meet regularly at the Chapel’s Scout Hut in the Jimmy R. Allen Meditation Park which was constructed in 2000 through the vision, finances, and hard work of many Chapel members and other volunteers who wanted to help the youth of the community.

Pack and Troop Leaders

Each scout troop is led by an adult leader who generously gives his/her time, attention and talents to the development and betterment of our youth. Troop leaders will be happy to provide more information about their programs and how to join a Troop.

The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development, physical fitness, and encourages the ethical decision-making skills. Boys can begin as Tiger Cubs (kindergarten and 1st grade), then move into the Wolf and Bear Cub Scout programs (2nd and 3rd grade, or age 8 or 9), and Webelos Scouts (4th and 5th grade, or age 10). They then transition into the Boy Scout Program.
