St. Mark's Scouting Ministry provides educational opportunities for boys and youth age 6 to 20 years old to take part in an active program of leadership development, service and outdoor activities. There's a place for Scouts at St. Mark's!
St. Mark's is just one of two non-LDS charter organizations in the Cornhusker Council's 16-county region of southeast Nebraska that charters a "full family of Scouting"— a Cub Scout program, a Boy Scout program, and a high adventure program for older youth.
Cub Scout Pack 25
Comprised of boys in 1st through 5th grade, Cub Scouts progress up through the ranks of Wolf, Bear and Webelos, gradually acquiring more confidence with basic Scouting knowledge and outdoor skills. Dens of boys meet weekly and the Pack meets once per month. Pack 25 annually co-hosts the Salt Valley District Pinewood Derby each March that attracts over 350 Scouts and 700 family members to the St. Mark’s Family Life Center. Cub Scout service projects include Kids Against Hunger, park and lake cleanups, recycling, and the Support Our Soldiers campaign. Pack 25 registered 35 boys for 2014.

Comprised of young men age 11 to 18 years old, Boy Scouts progress up through the ranks from Tenderfoot to Eagle Scout, earning merit badges along the way.
