Boys can begin their Cub Scouting experience in 1st grade, and continue through 5th grade.  Our pack is active all year long and encourages family participation in all Pack activities and events. Without parental volunteers to assist with our pack activities, the Pack 19 leadership could not put together a successful and memorable Cub Scout program for our boys.

Tyler State Park Event

Posted on Aug 27 2015 - 9:21am

Hello Everyone;

It looks like we will have a great turnout for our picnic at Tyler State Park and so far the weather looks nice.  I know a couple folks did not have a chance to sign up prior to the cut off on Wednesday so I opened the sign up again through tomorrow.  Now that we know who is coming, I would ask the families whose last name starts with the letters A-M to please bring some type of dessert and the folks with a last name starting with N-Z to bring a side dish to go along with the Pack Provided Hamburgers and Hot Dogs.  In consideration of anyone that has nut allergies, please check the labels for nut warnings on store purchased items and make sure they are available to be viewed if you bring items that are not nut free to the picnic. 

General Information and Directions:  The start time is at noon this Sunday.  The location is called the “Lower Plantation” picnic area, although I think I remember the sign at the park just saying “Plantation”.  Please don’t confuse our location with the “Upper Plantation”.  There is a parking area located near the site.  If you enter the park via the Newtown Bypass, make a left into the park at the traffic light where 413 North turns right and Swamp Rd continues straight.  After entering the park, go straight through the first stop sign into the parking area.  The picnic area is at the bottom of that lot.  You will see a number of picnic tables and a ball field on the left.  I hope to get a Join Cub Scout sign to put at the parking lot entrance.  I loaded a map of Tyler Park to the website if you want to print or view it.   

Just a few notes concerning some of the activities: (we would appreciate help from parents to assist with the activities as needed)

Disc Golf: Remember to bring a Frisbee/Flying Disc or two if you want to play Disc Golf. 

Geocaching:  Matt Pluger will take some folks Geocaching so you may want to download the app onto your smartphone.  The link to the website is:  http://www.geocaching.com/mobile/.

Bike Riding:  There are some bike trails to ride bikes down to the water, so feel free to bring bikes if you would like.  There is a fairly big hill to climb to get back to our picnic area, so the kids may need to walk their bikes if they do not have multiple gears.

Please let Matt or I know if you have any questions or I forgot anything.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday!

Final Fling of the Summer

Posted on Aug 25 2015 - 9:21pm

Hello Pack 19,

It's the final dog days of summer and there's only one more summer event...our pack picnic.  We have 51 people registered.  Woohoo!!!  However, I forgot to mention to also put down what side dish you will be providing.  Oh well, I'm sure we'll have lots of good stuff.  Remember, pack provides hamburger and hot dogs.

It's time to start thinking of fall, school, and SCOUTING...

  • The fall membership kick-off is Sept. 18th starting at 6:30 p.m.  If anyone can come earlier to help setup and/or come and help run the rocket making table and launch site, I would greatly appreciate it.
  • FOP Lodge family camping overnight is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 26th - to Sunday, Sep. 27th  Last year was a bit damp but did clear up enough to launch some real rockets and look at the stars.  Register here and don't forget to write in what side dish you can bring.  The main dish will be foil pack cooking.  This may even fulfill some of the new Iron Skillet cooking adventure requirements!

The start of the scout year also means POPCORN!!!!  We need a lot of help as Liz Newell has really gone all out to get us some good venues to sell, Sell, SELL!  Look for sign-ups for each venue soon.  Don't forget that you can register online at Trails-End and start selling popcorn online.  Feel free to sell to neighbors, friends, family, anyone.  Our goal is $10,000 this year.

I will be filling the calendar for the year, so don't forget that you can sync your device to our calendar by going to the Calendar Sync link and following the directions.  It's a great way to keep up to date on any new events or changes.

Don't forget to follow on twitter @LanghornePack19 for latest tweets on facebook at "Langhorne Cub Scouts Pack 19" to see some great pictures of our summer activities!

See everyone at the picnic!

Popcorn Kick Off Raffle Contest!

Posted on Aug 13 2015 - 10:00am

Hello Pack 19!

It's Popcorn Selling Season!  Yippee!

This year Marc Lewis came up with a great way to kick off Pack 19's Popcorn Sale.  A Raffle Contest!  Scouts who sell ANY amount of Popcorn will be entered into a drawing for TWO Tickets to a Trenton Thunder Home Game.  Your Scout can earn more entries by selling more Popcorn!  Ex: Sell 3 Popcorn items get 3 entries,   Now The Thunder only have a handful of home games left so this contest is going to be fast and furious (okay not really furious, but pretty quick!).  Here it is....  The contest runs between now and August 20th.  All your Scout needs to do is to sell at least one item by August 20th and then you let me know about it by 1:00pm on the 20th.  I'll pull the winner at 2:00 pm from all the entries I receive. So Easy and A Great Prize!  Thank you Marc Lewis!

Now you're probably saying "Yes! I want my Scout to win that awesome prize, but how do I know what to sell?"  Your Scout should have received his Popcorn Order Form and Prize Sheet in the mail.  As soon as that form hits your mailbox your Scout can start selling Popcorn!  Not only can they sell to friends and family close by, they can sign up at the Trails End Website and sell Popcorn to friends and family across the U.S.  It's really easy, the Popcorn gets delivered directly to the buyer and our Pack and your Scout are automagically given credit for the sale!  All you need to do is go to  http://sell.trails-end.com/login  create an account (3 things to known 1. Washington Crossing Council 2. Playwicki District 3. Pack 19, Langhorne Presbyterian Church) for your Scout, spread the word and share your link via email or social media.  It's really that easy! 

If you haven't received your Scout's form or need another, I have plenty and I am happy to get it to you!

Keep an eye out for The Popcorn Show and Sell sign up genius coming soon. Popcorn Show and Sells start the weekend of September 19-20!

 Thank you for your support!

Philadelphia Union Overnight and Scout Night

Posted on Jul 28 2015 - 11:47pm

Hello Pack 19!

I just received an e-mail from the Philadelphia Union that they have planned an overnight on August 16th and Scout Night on August 29th.  The cost for the overnight starts at $20 per person + $15 for anyone staying overnight.  This will include breakfast and a special session with the Union trainer in the morning.  The Scout Night is just the game with no overnight and the cost again starts at $20.  A minimum of 10 people per event is required to get the $20 starting price.  If the group rate tickets sell out at $20, then the next tier is $25.

I want to guage the participation level for this event quickly since the event is coming up fast so I've activated the registratin for each event.  If you are seriously interested in attending either event, please register by Friday the latest.  If at least 10 people are interested, I will open up Pay-Pal and order the tickets.  So please register quickly!
