About Hopewell Pack 8

Hopewell United Methodist Church (HUMC) has been sponsoring and supporting Scouting since 1943. Many of the scouts from Pack 8 bridge to Hopewell Troop 8, the Boy Scouting program sponsored by HUMC. We have meetings on Monday nights at Hopewell Church from 7pm to 8pm. This is where the dens meet weekly to work on achievements and get together to just have fun! There are monthly pack meetings where the achievements/patches are received, as well as special event meetings! We would love to see you, so please stop by and join us!
