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.

Food Drive for Back Mountain Food Pantry

Posted on Nov 16 2014 - 10:29pm

At our next pack meeting on Friday, November 21st, we are asking each family to bring donations for the Back Mountain Food Pantry. Any non-perishable food items are acceptable. Canned fruit and cereal are always in high demand. Please make sure all donations are not expired or past their sell by date. Last year we collected 312 items. We would like to set a target this year of collecting 500 food items. If each family can bring twelve items or more, we should be able to reach that goal. Scouts will receive a segment for their uniform for participating in this annual service project.

Veteran's Day Parade

Posted on Nov 6 2014 - 4:56pm

Please join us in honoring our veterans at the Veteran's Day Parade in Kingston this Sunday. We will assemble at the corner of Market Street and South Atherton Streets in Kingston at 1:30pm and the parade will kick off at 2:00pm. We tend to be near the middle to end of the parade, so we get to watch most of it walk by before we march. The parade will end at Public Square in Wilkes-Barre. Parents who are not marching with us can meet us in front of the new King's College building on the square (formerly the Ramada). Dress is Class A uniform. Be sure to have enough layers for the weather.
