Cub Scouting is a year-round program for boys, ages 7-10, uniquely designed to meet the needs of young boys and their parents. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character and development as well as physical fitness. Service projects, ceremonies, games, and other activities guide boys through the core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Through positive peer group interaction and parental guidance, boys also learn honesty, bravery, and respect. To join the cub scout organization in the Paradise area, contact:

Reaching Teens with the Message of Hope
The Factory Youth Center began in the first months of 1993. Out of the desire to serve the community, individuals from local churches met and planned. A building on the grounds of Paradise Fellowship Church was renovated into a youth center. This building in the early to mid 1900s was a shirt factory. The new "Factory" would now center on developing and investing in young lives. The Factory is faith-based and seeks to develop individuals on all levels of growth: spiritual, emotional, psychological, and physical. The Factory is supported by churches in the community as well as the generous support of businesses and individuals. The Factory has a two-story building, including a kitchen, bathrooms, lounge area, video game section, a vending machine, a floor hockey and basketball area as well as indoor games (pool tables, ping pong, air hockey, and foosball). Future expansion is planned.
