Cub Scouting is Fun With a Purpose. For over 80 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.

Scout Sunday at DUMC

Posted on Feb 10 2015 - 1:00pm

Please plan to attend Dallas United Methodist Church this Sunday, February 15th at 10:30 for our annual Scout Sunday service. The parishoners of Dallas UMC support our boy scout and cub scout units and offer us ample meeting and storage space and ask virtually nothing of us in return. Scouts are in the church at least 5 days a week and sometimes more. Please show your support and appreciation for their generosity by filling the pews just one morning with our cub scouts and their families. Refreshments will follow the service.
