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.

Now is the time to sign up for summer camp!  At the council camp kickoff meeting this week, we learned about some of the improvements and new developments at Camp Acahela for this summer's Resident Camp. In addition to Scout Skills, Crafts, Nature, Swimming, BB Range, Fishing and Games, we will be seeing some new features in the Obstacle Course and the Archery range is getting fitted out with brand new compound bows and targets and a canopy to provide shade over the firing line. But the really exciting news is the construction of a brand new 16 foot rock climbing wall which will be located inside the dining hall. It's going to be awesome! And let's not forget rafting on the pond, and special programs for Webelos like Outpost Camp, Hiking and tubing on the Lehigh River!!  Attendance at Camp Acahela has been growing every year and the programs just keep getting better and better. Check out "Summer Camp" on the main menu of the pack website. Everything you need to know is right there.
