The Cub Scout Promise

I Promise to do my best

to do my duty to G-d and my country

To help other people and to obey the Law of the Pack

Cub Scouting is fun with a purpose!

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.

For more information please contact John Papp at pack19aerojp@gmail.com

Here Comes August

Posted on Jul 28 2014 - 11:20pm

Hello Everyone,

Wow!  Summer is going by fast.  We just finished a successful and fun resident camp at Camp Hart and Family Fishing with the PA Fish and Boat Commission (the sunfish were biting like crazy!).  Now August is almost here and the new cub scout year is around the corner.  Our next event is a visit to the Churchville Nature Center's Lanape Living Villiage.  Please sign-up early because the tour is by reservation only.  Cost is $8 in person or $8.50 if by Pay-Pal.  Our final summer event is the Pack Picnic at Core Creek Park set for August 22nd from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  This is a pot-luck event so I'll have a sign-up for side-dishes, pack will provide the meat.  Although not organized as a pack event, keep in mind that the Veteran Wheel Chair Games are in Philadelphia from August 12th to the 17th.  As cub scouts, we can be 'Fans in the Stands' and just need to attend and cheer on the competitors.  If anyone is interested, contact me and I can send you more information.

Look for more information on popcorn sales and a special announcement for a new pack sales incentive!

Core Creek Fishing Event

Posted on Jul 21 2014 - 10:04pm

Hello Everyone,


I am happy to see that we successfully filled all 25 spots for the fishing event at Core Creek this Saturday.  Can those of you that are bringing anyone that is not a registered on our Website as a Cub Scout, parent or guardian, please add the full names of those attendees under the notes column on the sign-up sheet?  If anyone has decided they cannot make this event, please remove your information from the sign-up sheet on the Pack 19 website and/or inform me via Email at:  kmshaffer@verizon.net

I pasted some information that was just sent to me from the Fish and Game Commission about this event below:




This email serves as a reminder that we have your family registered for the Family Fishing Program this Saturday, July 26th, at the Core Creek County Park, Pavilion #7 off the Duchess Lane Road from 9AM to 1PM.


IMPORTANT: If your family is no longer attending, PLEASE let us know so we can adjust for the numbers. If you don’t show up and don’t tell me, you stole some other family’s chance to attend. If you are attending, then no need to reply.


What to expect: Our staff will be there to lead an instructional program prior to you fishing with your family. You do not need to bring any fishing equipment, but you can if you would prefer to learn on your own gear. We will provide the equipment for the event. We will provide bait. Adults do NOT need a fishing license during the hours of the program. You should expect to bring your own:


-              Sunblock

-              Insect repellent

-              Hydration

-              Snacks

-              Clothing/accessories for the weather conditions – hats, sunglasses, rain jackets


We do hold the program rain or shine; however, thunderstorms cause delays or cancellations. I will be onsite at 9:00AM to make that determination.


If you enter Core Creek County Park from the Bridgetown Pike off Rte. 413 between Langhorne and Newtown, you pull in to the park entrance and turn left following the park road, then make the first right onto the Duchess Lane Road, and follow it all the way to the parking area at the end. I will be at the pavilion at the very bottom of the hill. Look for yellow Fishing Event signs along the way. If you enter from the Tollgate Road off 413, then turn into the park entrance off Tollgate Road, and follow the road to the Stop sign, turn right and follow the park road around the lake past the dam and you’ll see the Duchess Lane Road on the left after crossing over a little bridge and through a shaded area of trees.


Here is a map that may help: http://www.buckscounty.org/docs/parks-and-recreation-documents/corecreekparkmap.pdf?sfvrsn=2

Thank you & I look forward to seeing you Saturday,
