[CONNECT] & HAVE FUN
Make friends and have fun on your journey with Christ.
RETREATS AND WEEKENDS
We’ve been “Locked-Out” – staying out all night going to Frankie’s Fun Park, The Plex, bowling, or to a movie, or “Locked-In” – staying up all night and having fun in the Youth Zone. We’ve also been known to look for the most ridiculous stuff at our annual Scavenger Hunt or to hop on the Shandon bus to head to Christian rock concerts or take part in retreats like Asbury Hills, or go on trips like skiing and Carowinds.
During the summer, you can count on several trips and activities like movies and fun parks or dinner and treats at local restaurants and our annual Day Camp filled with lots of outdoor adventures. We also continue to do service like Junior High and Senior High Mission Projects and Salkehatchie.
Shandon offers boys, kindergarten-12th grade, an opportunity to be involved in the Boy Scouts of America program.
The United Methodist Church long ago recognized scouting offers another setting for ministry to children and youth. Shandon hosts both Cub Scouts, kindergarten-5th grade, and Boy Scouts, 6th-12th grades, helping young people develop character, leadership skills and citizenship as well as self-worth and potential in a fun, adventure-filled and nurturing environment.
Boy Scout Troop 37, based out of Shandon United Methodist Church, has a rich history as the Boy Scout Charter was initiated April 1, 1948, making the Troop almost 70 years old. Troop 37 is part of the Congaree District and the Indian Waters Council; and is honored that over 130 young men have completed the rank of Eagle Scout while a member of Troop 37.
Troop meetings are every Wednesday evening starting at 7:00 p.m., in the Knox Building, room 209, during the school year. The Troop is always open to new Scouts, transferring Scouts and anyone interested in learning more about the Scouting program.

Shandon offers teams for all age groups that participate in the Christian Basketball League. Sign-ups begin in the fall and the league plays from November to February.
