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.

Hello Pack 281 families and leaders. Since we are just getting started with the scouting year I would like to invite everyone to contribute any pictures that may be taken throughout the year for our website photo albums. Also if any den leaders have any announcements they would like to be added to the website calendar please email those as well. Lastly, if there are any scouting articles/pictures that you would like to be published in the Dallas Post please email those stories/pictures to me as well and I will see that they get submitted. Please send all correspondence to me at webmaster@pack281dallas.org.

Big Weekend

Hi everyone! I know thoughts are starting to turn to school as the summer draws to a close but we have a busy weekend for scouts. On Saturday we have a movie night at 8pm. Come out in your Class B uniform. Friends and family are welcome as well. There will be refreshments available. Then on Sunday at 1pm we are meeting at the Dallas Elementary School to paint picnic tables and help clean up. As scouts this is an excellent opportunity to give back to our community and show the spirit of scouting.
