Troop 79 has been proudly chartered by Hopewell United Methodist Church of Tyrone, Georgia since 1974. We provide a strong year-round Scouting program utilizing the ideals and methods of the Boy Scouts of America. As we “Do Our Duty” to God, our Country, and to our Community, we cheerfully give back what we have received in scouting… one scout at a time.
