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.

Much Needed Break

Posted on Oct 18 2017 - 9:40pm

Hello Pack 19,

Whew, the second pack meeting of the year is almost upon us.  But for now, just a quick break to catch my breath.  On to this week's announcements

  • No scheduled den meetings this week at LPC.  You should have been contacted by your den leader if your den is planning to meet for an outing somewhere else.
  • The montly pack committee meeting is Oct. 25th at 7:00 p.m. at LPC.  All adults are invited to attend.  Come see how events are planned and find out more information about helping the pack grow!
  • The October pack meeting is Oct. 27th starting at 7:00 p.m. and is our annual Halloween pack meeting.  Scouts (family too!) get to wear their favorite costume.  The new Lion den will be coming to the pack meeting as well so we have to make sure to welcome them with a hearty Pack 19 cheer!
  • Pack registration is due now.  Unfortunately, this year's dues have increased to $100 to account for an increase in insurance fees from national BSA.  As always, no scout should be denied joining due to financial reasons so we offer several payment and financial aid options.  If you require some type of financial accommodation, please contact me (pack19aerojp@gmail.com) and we can work something out.  You will be contacted by our pack treasurer, Jen Capaldi, if you have not paid yet or discussed payment options.
  • Popcorn sales are almost over!
    • Popcorn Signup Genius has been set up here.  Only 1 more Show & Sells left and there is still quite a bit of inventory!
    • All show & sells have at least one scout but it's always better to work as a team.   Remember, show and sell sales count toward trails-end awards!  There is still room for one more scout from 10 - 12, 12 - 2, and NOBODY IS SIGNED UP FOR THE FINAL 2-4 SLOT!  Please check out the Signup Genius!
    • Even though there is only one more Show & Sell, there is still about a week and a half left to do family and door to door sales.  Everyone should have an order form by now as I've given them to the leaders and have been trying to hand them out at the various den meetings.  If you don't have one and need one, please contact me (pack19aerojp@gmail.com)
    • All orders are due by the October pack meeting.  Take home orders should be available by the Nov. 17th pack meeting, if not sooner.
    • If you sell door to door, remember to wear your Class A or B uniform, if you have one, and always take an adult with you.
    • Remember, if the pack sells $10,000 worth of popcorn, I'll shave my head at the November pack meeting.  I know we can do it because it's been done several times in the past with less scouts.  This is your last chance because I cross-over at the end of this scout year!
  • Outdoor events:
    • Everyone seemed to have a great time at our Fall Campout at Tohickon Family Campground.  Although it was overcast and a bit damp, it never really rained.  Plus there was trick-or-treating, a hay ride, and lots of good fun and games.  There was even a fireside program with about 10 skits performed by even the new Lion scouts (make sure to tell your den leader as I believe that this may fulfill a requirement for many of the rank adventures).  Great job and thank you to everyone that came and helped out.
    • Just around the corner is the annual Webelos Weekend is scheduled for Oct 28th and 29th at Ockanickon Scout Reservation in Upper Bucks.  This year's adventure...Science!  Cost is $14 per scout.  I've set this Friday as the deadline to sign-up so please go here and register.  I will be registering the entire pack at once on the council website to make things easier for the organizers (one of which is me!).
    • Rockets...ROckets...ROCkets...ROCKets...ROCKEts...ROCKETs...ROCKETS!  As I've advertised, every new scout receives a free rocket.  I was going to launch some this past weekend at the campout but my interpretation of what a 'field' is was different from how the campground staff defined a 'field'.  When I think 'field', I'm thinking of at least 3 acres.  They thought a 'field' was 3 square feet.  Needless to say there wasn't enough space to launch.  So, I'm going to organize our own launch party.  Since it will be just a few in the pack, I may do it at Core Creek park on some weekend afternoon.  If the weather isn't so bad, maybe some weekend in November before everyone forgets they are even getting a rocket.  Look for more information here soon!
  • Indoor events.  Follow links for more information.  Note the sign-up deadline dates for each event!
  • General notes:
    • Financial aid and/or payment plans are available for all events and pack dues.  A scout should never be denied the opportunity to fully participate due to financial reasons so please contact a leader if you need any help.
    • For anyone that order Pack 19 Swag at the blast-off event or would like to purchase some, the items should be available by the October pack meeting.  There are also some return donation of gently used items that will be given away on a first come first serve basis.

See you at the pack meeting!

Camping Gear Needed!

Posted on Oct 11 2017 - 6:32pm

Hello Pack 19,

Few things about this weekends camping trip:

  • There is also the option to overnight on Friday, Oct. 13th.  Marc Lewis has let me know that he will be up at the site on Friday evening so if anyone wants to head up there for 2 nights stay, feel free.
  • I will be up around 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning and will be there overnight to Sunday.
  • Breakfast will be served around 7:30 to 8:00 a.m. and hopefully everything will be packed up and out by 10:00 a.m. on Sunday.
  • I've setup a Signup Genius for this event here for extra supplies if anyone wants to help with items.
  • We are in need of tents!  If anyone has any spare tents that they could bring or, if not going, drop off at the church at the Friday den meetings, please let me know (pack19aerojp@gmail.com) so I can coordinate.
  • Go to our calendar page here for more info (like what to bring and what not to bring) and to sign-up.

I think that is it.  Looks like a good number of people attending.  Thanks everyone!

Den Meetings & Camping

Posted on Oct 10 2017 - 9:06pm

Hello Pack 19,

Things are starting to roll this week.  Den meetings this Friday and Family Camping this weekend.  On to this week's announcements:

  • Den Meetings at LPC:
    • Unless you are notified by your den leaders, den meetings are scheduled for this Friday, Oct. 13th (woooooooo) at 7:00 p.m.  Here are the tentative room assignments

    • The first Lion den meeting is set for this Friday, Oct. 13th starting a 6:30 p.m.  Meeting location will be determined at arrival time.

  • The October pack meeting is Oct. 27th starting at 7:00 p.m. and is our annual Halloween pack meeting.  Scouts (family too!) get to wear their favorite costume.  More information to follow.
  • Pack registration is due now.  Unfortunately, this year's dues have increased to $100 to account for an increase in insurance fees from national BSA.  As always, no scout should be denied joining due to financial reasons so we offer several payment and financial aid options.  If you require some type of financial accommodation, please contact me (pack19aerojp@gmail.com) and we can work something out.
  • Popcorn sales have started
    • Popcorn Signup Genius has been set up here.  Only 2 more Show & Sells left!
    • All show & sells have at least one scout but it's always better to work as a team.   Remember, show and sell sales count toward trails-end awards!

    • If you sell door to door, remember to wear your Class A or B uniform, if you have one, and always take an adult with you.

Welcome to a New Scout Year!

Posted on Sep 20 2017 - 9:24pm

Hello Pack 19,

Wow, what a "Blast-Off".  Thank you to all those that came.  Thank you to all those that helped.  It looked like a very fun and successful night.  So...

Welcome to a new Scout Year!!!

Things officially kick off on October 6th but there are bonus den meeting opportunities this Friday, Sept. 22nd, and next Friday, Sept. 29th, so make sure to check your e-mails from your den leaders.  Now onto this weeks announcements.

  • Just signed up for scouts.  What do I do now?
    • You should be receiving login information soon to be able to access the pack website in order to sign-up for events and sync your calendar.
    • There will be a Lion den parent orientation meeting on Sept. 22nd starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Langhorne Presbyterian Church that will go into more detail about the new pilot program.  If you just signed up your kindergartener or are thinking of signing up, this meeting is for you!
    • There will be a Tiger den parent orientation meeting on Sept. 29th starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Langhorne Presbyterian Church that will go into more detail about the Tiger rank program for 1st graders.  Please plan to attend if you have signed up or want more information before joining.
    • For Wolf (2nd grade) to Arrow of Light (5th grade), look for e-mails from your den leaders about the next den meeting.
  • What, When, Where?  Want to know what events are planned, when they hare happening, and where they are?  Sync our pack calendar to your Android or Apple device using the "Calendar Sync" link at the top left menu.
  • Popcorn sales have started!!!  The popcorn fundraiser is our one and only fundraiser for the year.  We raise approximately $3,000 in sales and about $1,000 in donations which help offset some of the costs throughout the year.  If we didn't sell popcorn, pack dues would have to be increased 50% so it is a big deal.  There are 11 show & sells at various places throughout the weekends in September and October.  Please try to help out as much as possible.  There are about 60 - 70 slots that need to be filled.  We have about 50 scouts so it shouldn't be a problem filling those slots at least once.  This is also the easiest way to sell popcorn because the customers come to you!  A Popcorn Signup Genius has been set up here.  Please consider signing up for a 2 hour slot so we can meet our goal.  I've been Cubmaster for 5 years now and my challenge still stands.  If the pack sells $10,000 worth of popcorn, I'll shave my head at the November pack meeting.  So far, I've had a nice warm head with plenty of hair.  I know we can do it because it's been done several times in the past with less scouts.  This is your last chance because I cross-over at the end of this scout year!
  • There is a pack committee meeting next Wednesday, Sept. 27th at LPC starting at 7:00 p.m.  All in the pack are invited to come check out how things get planned and what it takes to run a pack.
  • Our annual fall campout is now at Tohickon Family Campground on Oct 13th - 15th.  Thank you Mike Angelini, our Committee Chair, for reserving our site.  This looks like a fun-filled camping experience with the pack (Including free hay rides!).  Space may be limited to make sure to sign-up early on our pack calendar.
  • The October pack meeting is Oct. 27th and is our annual Halloween pack meeting.  Scouts get to wear their favorite costume.  Adults as well!  Siblings always welcome!
  • Something for our new Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks.  The annual Webelos Weekend is scheduled for Oct 28th and 29th at Ockanickon Scout Reservation in Upper Bucks.  This year's adventure...Science!  More to follow.

See you at the den meetings if not sooner!
