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.
