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.

On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty,

to G-d and my country,

and to obey the Scout Law,

to help other people at all times,

to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Even though cross-over has passed, our cub scout year is not over yet.  Thanks to all my leaders and parents who have helped throughout the year, but we still have some May events and then our main summer events.  Remember, if your scout participates in at least 3 pack events during the summer (June through August), you are eligible for a Summer Activity pin that can be worn on the uniform until crossing over to boy scouts.  So, again, here are our summer activities thus far:

Cross-Over

Posted on May 5 2015 - 10:52pm

Hello Pack 19!

The pack cross-over is almost here.  First things first.  I'm really proud of all the work the scouts have done through the year.  Congratulations to them and to their great leaders.  I consider myself blessed to be part of this pack.  Don't forget to bring a side-dish to cross-over.  Setup begins at 4:00 with food served at 5:00 and the general pack meeting starting at 5:45.   See you there!

Before getting to the regular announcements, I would like to make a special appeal.  My firm belief is that scouting and all it has to offer should be open to any boy who is ready and willing to participate, learn, "Do Their Best", and "Have Fun" regardless of financial obligation.  Although I try to keep costs down as much as possible, many pack events contain some additional cost, summer camp being one of the major ones.  In today's economy, many in our pack may not have the financial means to meet these costs and fully participate in all our pack activities.  My goal this year was to have extra fund-raisers that would go into a general pool and offset some of the costs for those scouts in need.  Unfortunately, my goal was not met.  So, I'm making this special appeal to everyone in the pack.  If you wish to help support a scout in our residency camp, please consider giving a donation at cross-over.  I will have a container out that you can drop-off whatever you feel comfortable in giving.  No amount is too small and no amount is too large and no one should feel obligated to give.  Last year, through the kindness of several individuals, we were able to help send two additional scouts to Camp Hart.  I would like to meet or exceed that goal this year as well.

Now on to the announcements

  • The date for summer camp is July 12th - 15th.  You have one last chance to register.  I will be taking payments this Friday at cross-over.  After that, the price goes up if there is space available.
  • We've decided on some summer activities so that all scouts have the potential to earn their summer activity pin (3 events over 3 months).  Thes events are available in the calendar and include a registration.  Please register if you are interested so we can gauge whether to have or cancel the event.
    • May 16th:  Flag replacement at OLG cemetery.
    • May 25th:  Langhorne Memorial Day Parade.
    • May 29th-31st:  May The Pack Be With You.  Family cub scout camping at Ockanickon Scout Reservation
    • June 6th:  Snorkeling for Scouts.  Cost is $20 per person and goes over everything necessary to learn how to snorkel including getting in the water!
    • June 27th:  Insect Hunt at Bowman's Wildflower Preserve.  Cost is $5 per scout and $6 per adult.  Minimum 10 required to register

Summer Activities

Posted on Apr 21 2015 - 10:49pm

Hello Pack 19!

It's the calm before the storm.  Just two more Fridays until cross-over.  Time to start thinking of summer activities!  

  • The date for summer camp is July 12th - 15th.  Sign-ups are here.  Cost is $160 per scout and $80 per adult.  As a reminder, everyone, including any attending adult, will need Medical Forms A, B, and C.  You can find them on the links section of our website.  Candice Fletcher has graciously taken charge regarding summer camp and everyone should have received a notice from her about important dates.  The due date for all payments in May 1st!
  • We're looking for summer activities so that all scouts have the potential to earn their summer activity pin (3 events over 3 months).  Just let me (pack19aerojp@gmail.com) know and I'll add the event and setup a sign-up for it.  Simple as that.  It's also a great way to get to know the others in the pack.
  • Always check our calendar of events as I may forget to mention everything in the weekly E-blasts.
