UMCOS is a Ministry of the North Georgia Conference

of the United Methodist Church

We provide information, programs, tools & training to support the Scout Youth Programs at the 900+ congregations in North Georgia.

Youth Programs

We minister to youth via 4 national youth organizations: Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Amachi (Big Brothers/Big Sisters) and Camp Fire.

Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Amachi & Camp Fire

Each Methodist congregation has the ability to select any (or all) of these 4 organizations to partner with in order to minister to its youth.


The Methodist Church provides various awards to recognize Methodist Youth, Leaders, Units & Congregations.


Awards can be presented at any time of the year, although a majority are presented at Scout Sunday Services in February. Learn more here.


UMCOS provides Adult Leader Training to help congregations grow their programs and build Duty-to-God into their programs.

UMCOS is able to train leaders in up to 10 different courses to support their youth programs in their congregations. Learn more here.
