Boys currently in 2nd-8th grade are welcome to join Cadets Boys’ Club.  Our club meets
roughly every other Wednesday evening from September – April.


Cadets provides an opportunity for boys to study the Bible together while experiencing the wonder of God’s creation and learning hands-on skills.   

Regular meetings, held at Cottage Grove Church, include a time of Bible lessons, badgework and/or projects.  We also have special activities, such as an annual fall campout and spring car derby.
