The Cub Scout program at Hawkins United Methodist Church is dedicated to preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by reminding them to do their best to follow the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack. This is accomplished through den and pack based activities in the home and neighborhood using strong values, dedicated leaders, family involvement, and an emphasis on character development, citizenship training, and mental and physical fitness. Pack 104 is sponsored by the Hawkins United Methodist Church Men's Club.
