Welcome to Pack 281! Our pack is located in Dallas, PA in the heart of the Back Mountain community. If your son is considering joining scouts you have come to the right place! We are a very active Cub Scout pack that thrives on community involvement and family values.

Hi everyone! One of my favorite things to watch was on tonight, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown! Between that and Harvest Fest this weekend how could you not be in the Fall/Halloween state of mind! I'm looking forward to a great time this weekend at Camp Achahela enjoying all of the activities and games and food that they will have! Donuts cooked over a campfire, now your talking! If you didn't get tickets yet you can still go and buy one at the "door", so to speak. Also make sure you are all getting your costumes ready for the Pack Meeting next week! We will also be collecting winter weather gear for local people in need and care packages for sailors away from their families in the coming holidays. I have been busy planning for the Pack Meeting and I think we have a pretty good meeting shaping up. There will be some classic Halloween activities and some brand new things as well. I'm excited and I hope you all are as well! Have a great weekend and stay warm! Hopefully I'll see you up at Harvest Fest! If anyone has any questions or problems don't hesitate to contact me,                -    Cubmaster Josh

Scouts helping Troops at Sea

Posted on Oct 14 2016 - 4:46pm

Hi everyone! I have a special announcement! Our Wolf Den Leader Michelle Specht has a contact at the Navy and she has a list of some supplies that our deployed sailors would greatly appreciate. This would help a group currently deployed called the "Swamp Foxes". They are based out of Jacksonville and this would brighten their holiday away from home. We will collect anything you wish to donate at the October Meeting so it can get to them by Thanksgiving. A few years ago we did stockings for soldiers but we haven't had a contact to get items to the soldiers the last year or two so we are glad to have someone that will allow us to help bring a little happiness to the men and wmoen of the armed forces that help protect our families by being away from theirs. Here is a list of some items that they could use/would appreciate:  French Vanilla coffee creamer (powdered of course); dried fruit; hard candy; coffee (please no Sarah Lee or 8 o'clock and no kcups) (Dunkin is rumored to be like the Holy Grail when they are at sea); baby wipes; hand sanitizer; crossword puzzles; and word searches. Again anything that you may want to donate to these sailors would be greatly appreciated. We will also be collecting any cold weather gear such as coats, scarves, gloves, mittens and hats for locals in need. If you have any further questions or concerns feel free to contact me.      -      Cubmaster Josh

Hi everyone! As the weather turns colder and the heat starts kicking on don't forget that our Pack Meeting is coming up. We are going to be collecting winter coats, scarves, hats, mittens and gloves for people in our area that need help to stay warm this winter. Any donations are appreciated. Also make sure you are working on your costume for the Pack Meeting as we will be having our costume party/contest. If you are looking for a class B shirt or you want a warmer class B shirt you will be in luck!. We will be taking orders for class B gear at the Pack Meeting. Be sure to bring your checkbook or cash so we can get them ordered quickly and have them in time for the colder weather! Stay warm out there and we'll see you soon! If you have any problems or questions feel free to contact me.    -    Cubmaster Josh

October Begins!

Posted on Oct 6 2016 - 12:19am

Hi everyone! I am still drying everything out from a wet weekend at Camp Achahela with our 4th and 5th grade Scouts for STEM weekend. Despite the weather we all had a great time. There are more great events on the way! This Sunday we are out at Roba's. If you missed your chance to get a ticket at the discounted group rate you can still come out this Sunday and purchase regular price admission and drop by Campfire Site #9 and say hello. Remember to work on your costumes for the October Pack Meeting as we will have our annual costume party. On a serious note we have a great history as a Pack of helping out communities in need and we are looking to continue that. At the November Pack Meeting in addition to collecting food items for the local food pantry we will also look to help out the Second Annual "Forever in My Heart" Winter Coat Drive. The Boy Scouts of America, the Crestwood High School Key Club and the Wescavage Family are collecting winter coats for those in need (all sizes for children and adults are sought). Hats, mittens, gloves and scarves are also being collected to distribute to people as the winter season approaches. All donations for this cause are appreciated. If anyone has any questions or problems please feel free to contact me.     -      Cubmaster Josh

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good time at the Pack Meeting! We have a lot of events coming up that I want to remind everyone about as Den business is picking up. We have the Roba's Adventure on Sunday October 9th and Harvest Fest coming up Saturday October 22nd and Sunday October 23rd. A reminder that money is due for these events by October 3rd at our Committee Meeting. You can either get the money to your Den Leader or contact me and I can meet you to get the money turned in. Also I want to let everyone know that if they are interested in earning the Catholic Religious Awards we have two parents that have stepped up to coordinate that for you, Amy Williams and Beth Redington. If you are interested please either contact them or you can contact me and I will get you connected to them. A big thank you to both of them for volunteering to help the Pack. We appreciate it! Also remember that we have other positions that need to be filled in the Pack as well and are looking for other volunteers. If you can help out please contact myself or your Den Leader. Have a safe week and be thinking of those costumes for our next Pack Meeting.    -    Cubmaster Josh
