Hickory Flat Church is blessed to charter two scouting organizations:
Boy Scout Troop 4056
The Boy Scout goal is to train youth, 6th grade and up in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to inculcate typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking.

Cub Scout Pack 465
Cub Scouts is a program for boys in 1st through 5th grade. The aim of the Cub Scouting program is to help boys grow into good citizens who are strong in character and personally fit. Boys are divided into dens based on their age. At the den level, boys work on achievements that focus on character development, spiritual growth, community, and outdoor skills. Once a month, all of the dens meet together as a pack. At pack meetings, the boys are recognized for their achievements and earn badges and awards.
Each year, the Cub Scouts of Pack 465 participate in a variety of service projects and other activities to give back to our community. While the Cub Scout program teaches and reinforces values, boys join Cub Scouts because they want to have fun and go camping. In addition to several pack campouts, Pack 465 hosts a Cubmobile Race, Pinewood Derby, and a Model Rocket Launch or Raingutter Regatta each year. The pack also hosts an annual trip each Spring. Past trips have included zoo sleepovers and visits to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center and the Tennessee Aquarium.
