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.

July Camping Events

Posted on Jun 28 2016 - 10:10pm

Hello Pack 19,

Two announcements this week concerning July camping events.
 
I'm going to be at LPC this Thursday evening around 7:00 p.m. for a brief orientation meeting for Camp Hart.  The primary reason is to start collecting the necessary forms that must be turned in on the day we arrive.  A summary of forms that must be filled out by everyone attending!
  • BSA Medical Forms A, B, C  NOTE:  Form C requires a physical or check-up and must be signed by the doctor
  • Drug Administration Form
  • Medication Storage Release for Adults (if adult and wanting to keep your medication)
  • Allergy Action Plan form for anyone that is allergic to food and will require immediate attention if exposed
  • Grandview Release Form
  • Swim Test (if you plan to take the swim test at a local pool.  Must be signed by certified life guard)
Please follow this link to find all forms.   You should make 3 copies of each form.  I will need 2 and you can keep 1.  There is a ton of other information on the site including the Leader Guide which, what food will be served, what you need to pack, schedule of events, etc.  So go to the link. 
 
We have been assigned the Yellow Bear camp site (yay!) so there should be adequate room for both tents if you want to bring one.  It is a bit far from the parking lot, so if anyone can bring carts and such to haul everything out when we leave, that would be a great help.
 
The second announcement is about the Trenton Thunder overnight.  Full payment must be made by this Friday.  We seem to be a bit short on attendance, so if you are on the fence, please sign-up soon so we don't buy tickets we don't need.  Our new policy of waiving credit card fees for events less than $50 also makes payment a breeze.  You don't need a PayPal account, just put the event in your 'cart' and then go to checkout to put payment info in.  Secure and easy!
 
Now for the August camping event.  Marc Lewis has sent out a lot of info for Cape May.  We are committed for 35 people so please sign-up.  This looks to be a great event.
 
I think that is it.  Hope everyone is having a great summer so far and see you at some of the summer events!
 
Thanks all,

John Papp

Camp Hart Information

Posted on Jun 21 2016 - 6:23pm

Hello Pack 19,

Hickory Run was a blast.  Weather held out, food was easily prepared, and much fun was had.  Look for a video of the boys doing skits by the camp fire to be posted soon.  It's a laugh riot.  Now it's off to Camp Hart,the Trenton Thunder overnight, and Cape May!
 
For those attending Camp Hart, I STRONGLY suggest you follow this link!  There is a ton of information on the site including what food will be served, what you need to pack, all the forms you will need to fill out in addition to Forms A, B, and C.  Again...
 
Everyone MUST have all forms A, B, and C!!!!  Form C requires a doctor's signature so make sure you get it to your doctor ASAP as it 'may' require a physical.
 
As for forms A and B, it is up to you how detailed you want to be on immunization shots, especially for adults who probably don't remember when they received their last rubella booster.
 
I'm not sure what campsite we will be assigned but I requested Yellow Bear again.  I wasn't able to make it to any of the orientations but through back and forth e-mails, the only thing that is different from other times was to make sure everyone arrives at the same time so transport and setup is easier.  I hope to have a pre-meeting for all those going some time next week or the following week.
 
The Trenton Thunder overnight is coming up fast as well.  Full payment must be made by next Friday.  We seem to be a bit short on attendance, so if you are on the fence, please sign-up soon so we don't buy tickets we don't need.  Our new policy of waiving credit card fees for events less than $50 also makes payment a breeze.  You don't need a PayPal account, just put the event in your 'cart' and then go to checkout to put payment info in.  Secure and easy!
 
Marc Lewis is the contact point for Cape May and he will be sending out info for that event as well very soon.
 
I think that is it.  Hope everyone is having a great summer so far and see you at some of the summer events!
 
Thanks all,

John Papp

Hickory Run State Park Camping Trip

Posted on Jun 4 2016 - 10:53am

Hello Everyone,

If you’re on the fence about going on the camping trip this weekend, it’s time to get off, you will have fun!!!

This note is to everyone that signed up for the Hickory Run camping trip or wants to go and has not paid for the trip.  If your name is listed below, you signed up for the trip but have not paid.  I need everyone to either pay via pay pal and/or Email me (Email address below) confirmation with the names of the people that will attend by the end of the day Wednesday June 8.  Those of you who do not have a Paypal account can pay me by cash or check when you arrive at the campsite.  I would appreciate not having to track people down for payment.  I need to know how many people are attending by the end of the day Wednesday the 8th so I know how many people I am food shopping for.  I would also like to ask those of you who have not logged your activities of choice onto the sign up page so we can plan the activities accordingly.  Feel free to Email your choices if that is easier. 

Details regarding the camping trip can be found on the website.  I will follow up with directions on how to get to the group tent camping area in the near future.  If all goes well, I hope to leave around 8 AM Saturday morning.  It is approximately a 2 your drive.  There is no electricity at the campsite.  I stopped by the camping area a couple weeks ago and saw that there are Port-A-Pottys on location that were very clean at the time.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can assist in any way.  Thank you and enjoy your weekend.

Memorial Day Parade

Posted on May 29 2016 - 3:02pm

Hello Pack 19,

A happy Memorial Day weekend to everyone!  Unfortunately tropical depression Bonnie is going to make a mess of the parade tomorrow morning.  I was unable to confirm if the parade was cancelled or not, but cannot delay making a decision whether to participate tomorrow any longer.  Because the weather forecast is calling for 80-100% heavy rain tomorrow morning between 8 AM and 1 PM, we will not march in the parade this year.  I suspect they will cancel or postpone the parade due to the amount of rain we are expecting.   

Please enjoy your memorial day and make sure to go out of your way to thank a current or previous member of our military for helping preserve our way of live in this great country of ours.

Memorial Day Parade Info

Posted on May 25 2016 - 5:47pm

Hello Pack 19,

Pack 19 traditionally marches in the Langhorne Memorial Day Parade to show our respect and gratitude for our current and past veterans.   I'm going to be out of town this year so our intrepid Assistant Scoutmaster, Kevin Shaffer, will be organizing this event.  The parade officially begins at 9:00 a.m. this coming Monday, so it would be best if few leaders showed up around 8:00 a.m. to find and reserve our spot in the parade order and for the remaining scouts who wish to march to be there no later than 8:45 a.m.  The pack typically lines up near the bank at the corner of Bellevue and Richardson avenues.
 
Out of respect for the veterans, only those with uniforms can march.
All scouts must be in their Class A uniforms (hats, neckerchiefs, slides, shirts).
Tradition has the Arrow of Light rank march with the American and pack flags so be ready!
If at all possible, please try to attend the entire parade as there is a review at the end were we can salute the veteran's committee. 
 
There will be plenty of water to stay hydrated, however, but it's always nice if someone would to bring some snacks (like trail mix or such).  Also feel free to bring any marching songs or chants that are cub scout appropriate.  Hot dogs will be served at the Soby Post after the parade for a donation.
 
Thanks all,

John Papp
