As with many Methodist churches, Chamblee First United Methodist Church sees one of its primary missions as serving children and youth; as such, it has provided support to Scouting for many decades, with Troop 268 being organized in 1948.
The Chamblee Methodist Scout Hut is the primary meeting location for Troop 268 and Pack 268, and is also available for use by local Girl Scout troops. It is a 2000 square foot cinder block building located at the top of Chamblee Methodist’s nature trail, with a fireplace, fire ring, covered outdoor porch, and plenty of opportunities for Scouts to learn about the outdoors.
The unique Chamblee Methodist grounds includes over 30 acres of green space, with nature trails, playgrounds, fields, creeks, and the only 18 hole disc golf course inside the Atlanta perimeter; our open fields provide a perfect place for our Scouts to play kickball or ultimate. During June, Chamblee Methodist hosts the district Cub Scout Day Camp for packs across north DeKalb; you will often see model rockets launched off the church front lawn during this week, with BB and archery ranges set up in our meadow.
Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts participate in or help with many church activities throughout the year, including:
February: Scout Sunday
March/April: Easter Egg Hunt
May (Memorial Day) and November (Veterans Day): Veterans grave decoration
October: Fall Festival
November: Thanksgiving Food Drive
December: Live Nativity
