For over 85 years, Cub Scouts have been having the time of their lives making new friends and learning new things in an environment designed to help them succeed. Whether your son is building his own pinewood derby® car or learning how to roast the perfect marshmallow with his best friends at a family campout, he will LOVE being a Cub Scout. So if he's in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years old, then it's time for him to have some fun … with the Cub Scouts.

Why choose Cub Scouting?



Pack 281 offers an exciting year-round program implemented by dedicated, trained and caring adult leaders. We serve families from throughout the Back Mountain area and new scouts are always welcome. Our scouts remain actively involved in their schools, in sports, in music and in their community.

On Sunday May 3rd Miss Pitcavage at the Dallas Elementary School is looking for help planting trees and cleaning up around the school. This is a great opportunity for the Scouts to make their school look nice and get involved with the community. Also Miss Pitcavage is hoping that some pick-up trucks would be available to help with this project. Any help would be appreciated.
