Join Cub Scouts!
Gayville is home to Boy Scouts Troop 180. Troop 180 consists of boys in grade 6th through 12th grade. Troop 180 has camp outs throughout the year and has meetings during the school year. Contact Tara Pirak at (605) 267-0088 *Home.
This is the traditional Scouting experience for young men in the fifth grade through high school. Service, community engagement, and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.
While there is guidance from experienced leaders, Boy Scouts take their own lead, exploring places they've never been as they dive into the rugged world of outdoor adventure. With a spirit of teamwork, they pack up their Scout gear and their sense of adventure, and dive into the learning and excitement that comes from being in the brotherhood of the Boy Scouts.
Boy Scouts has a lot to offer, but don't let the 130+ merit badges scare you away. With the exposure to a uniquely hands-on learning experience through earning merit badges that reflect each boy's budding interests, they unlock a world of discovery around them, and forge their path for the future. By culminating the Boy Scouting experience by earning the rank of Eagle and accomplishing a service project imagined and executed by the Scout himself, he can prove his leadership skills and gain the confidence he needs to excel in life and in the world at large.

The 4-H name represents four personal development areas of focus for the organization: head, heart, hands, and health. 4-H is the nation’s largest positive youth development and youth mentoring organization, empowering six million young people in the U.S. 4-H prepares young people to make a positive impact in their communities and the world. 4-H reaches every corner of our nation, from urban neighborhoods to suburban schoolyards to rural farming communities.
The caring support of adult volunteers and mentors inspires young people in 4-H to work collaboratively, take the lead on their own projects and set and achieve goals with confidence. 4-H’ers chart their own course, explore important issues and define their place in the world. 4-H’ers stand up for themselves and their communities.
