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.

Family in Need

Posted on Dec 9 2015 - 11:58am

Hi everyone, this is a season of excitement and joy as we look forward to gathering together with family andfriends to celebrate the holidays. Unfortunately one of our neighboring Packs in Shickshinny has lost one of their members. The Mott family had a fire that destroyed their home and claimed the life of Mason Mott. His wife and 3 sons, between the ages of 3-12, are faced with a very difficult situation in the midst of their loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them and if anyone would like to make a donation we will have a collection at the Pack Meeting this Friday. Any help is appreciated greatly. Thank you and stay safe everyone.    -   Cubmaster
