Elkins Area Youth Activities

Boy Scouts of America Troop 460
150 Church St. Elkins, AR 72727

Troop 460 is chartered by the Elkins Community Church, located at 150 Church Street, Elkins, Arkansas. We meet year round on Monday nights, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM.
The mission of Troop 460 is to prepare young men ages 11-17 to make ethical and moral choices, throughout their lifetimes. We accomplish this mission by instilling the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law and ingraining in each Scout a firm foundation of basic Scout skills and servant leadership. We believe the best place to teach these skills is outdoors. Our Scouts learn through activities such as Camping, Cooking, Canoeing, Kayaking, Climbing, First Aid, Physical Fitness, Fishing, Orienteering, Swimming, Hiking, Backpacking, Wilderness Survival, and many others

Elkins 4H


Elkins 4H is part of the Washington County 4H system. We are a small club, just starting to come back together after having to stop meeting due to COVID. We have kids with many interests, both in raising and showing animals and in many other areas of agriculture and community service. 4H is all about ‘Learning by Doing’ and ‘Making the Best Better’ through a variety of hands on projects, competitions and service projects.

You can find out more about all that 4H has to offer at 4h.uada.edu. Due to USDA regulations, we are still required to keep our in-person meetings to 20 people or less, so we have to require RSVPs to our club meetings, but we are looking forward to having open meetings again in the near future.
