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.

Early Spring

Posted on Feb 3 2016 - 7:10pm

Hello Pack 19,

Looks like an early spring from the prognosticator from Punxsutawney.  Here's one person who hopes it's true.  Now on to this week's announcements!

  • Pack Events
    • Snorkeling for Scouts Sign-up
    • Monster Truck Show Sign-up
    • Blue and Gold Sign-up
    • Harlem Globetrotters Sign-up
  • Summer Camp Sign-up Open
 Scroll down for more info!
  • There are a ton of events planned over the next several months before starting to get into summer events.  Please note the sign-up deadlines.  Please try to register and pay by the appropriate deadlines to make things easier.  Since there are no more pack meetings before some of the event deadlines, please register online and pay at the upcoming den meetings.  I or Dana Brady will be making rounds to see if anyone has any payments or you can leave them with your den leader(s)
    • The Monster Truck Show scheduled is scheduled for February 13th.  The deadline to sign-up has passed but we have 5 tickets for sale due to a late cancellation so if you wish to purchase them, please see me or Dana at the den meetings!
    • Snorkeling for Scouts has been set for February 20th.  Cost is going to be $20 ($20.50 for PayPal) per scout (chaperones that want to try are free).  We do need an accurate head count and there are some forms that need to be filled out beforehand for the event so please register here.  For some reason, the website keeps deleting the time so I'll put it in this announcement.  Fittings start at 11:00 p.m. so that the class can start by noon.  Deadline to sign-up is Feb. 16th.  I need an accurate head count for this event since it is taking place outside the council and I have to register a travel request, so please register as soon as you can!
    • Blue and Gold is February 27th and will be held at St. James church in Langhorne (across from Bella Tori restaurant).   Blue & Gold is the annual celebration of the birth of scouting.  Each den also puts together a special themed prized (movies, cars, game-night, camping, etc.) for which scouts can put in a raffle ticket to win.  Then there is a DJ with games and prizes.  So all around good fun.  All scouts are free.  Adults are $5 and siblings over 3 are $3. Food is catered and all scouts will get a door prize so we need an accurate head count.   Register here.  Deadline to sign-up Feb. 23rd.
    • Philly Flyers scout night is Feb 29th.  Tickets are $36 and include a special event patch.  Since that night is also Hall of Fame night, there will be no pictures on the ice afterwards.  Register here.  Deadline to sign-up is still to be determined, but do it fast!
    • The Harlem Globetrotters coming up on March 5th at the Trenton Sun Center.  This fills fast so we need registrations soon.  Cost will be $21.50 per person.  Go here to sign-up quick because the deadline is Feb. 12th.
  • Set your calendar, summer residency camp at Camp Hart is scheduled for July 13-16!  Cost will be $170 per scout and $80 per adult.  Go here to sign-up.  The theme this year is Greek Olympics!  Sign-up.  Don't forget your Medical Form C, which requires a doctor's signature.  Get it done during your annual well-baby checkup or physical!  All necessary forms can be found here.
  • Check our calendar for lots of future events (summer is just around the corner!)...Better yet, sync with our Android or Apple device and always stay up to date!
See you at the den meetings!

Attire and Arrival for Adventure Aquarium

Posted on Jan 30 2016 - 2:14pm

Hello Pack 19,

 

Just a couple of quick notes to those attending the Adventure Aquarium overnight tonight.  The scouts should wear a shirt that represents Pack 19.  They do not need to wear their class A shirt unless they do not have a t-shirt, sweatshirt, etc.  They do not need to wear their hats or necherchiefs.  

 

I like to ask that at least one parent/chaparone stay in the lobby area to watch the children while the drivers take their cars to the parking garage.  This will avoid the need for any drivers to take the children to the parking garage for the shuttle will only drive the drivers back to the aquarium.  It looks like the garage is a fairly long walk from the aquarium.  I am planning to arrive at 6 PM, but I will need to park my car as well.  

 

Please try to stay together as a Pack during this event.  This will make it easier to communicate and keep track of everyone.  I am looking forward to seeing everyone tonight.

Blizzard '16

Posted on Jan 21 2016 - 9:05pm

Hello Pack 19,

At this point, it seems the "Snowmageddon" will hold off until after the pack meeting so everything is a go for tomorrow.  Important things to remember...

UNIFORM INSPECTION!  A scout is CLEAN so in preparation for Blue & Gold, there will be a uniform inspection at the pack meeting so be sure to wear your Class A uniforms.  If anything is missing, I can take order for the scout store or see if I have supplies available.  During inspection, David Brown will be giving a brief intro do Friends Of Scouting (FOS).

PINEWOOD DERBY CLINIC!  Bring your derby cars to cut as we should have one and maybe two band saws.  Rules for this year's derby will also be available as well as some pointers on how to buid a fast car.  The pack pinewood derby is coming up fast on March 5th!

See you at the pack meeting!
