Scouts is an interfaith organization -- all those who recognize a "Duty to God" are welcome! Our Pack is comprised of "Dens" where same-age boys meet regularly during the school year for fun activities designed to encourage "do your best" behavior at home and in our community.

Pack Meetings are the third Tuesday of the month at 7pm, Lions Lake Park off Route 73, Voorhees. We meet informally in the summer meeting to welcome prospective new and also returning scouts (entering 1st through 5th grade in the fall) so come on out. Once paid and registered, boys receive a RANK MANUAL and can then begin completing rank requirements right awayJoining fee for the 2014-15 program year is $30 now plus $30 more by September for a total of $60!

Due to Boy Scouts of America Youth Protection requirements, this welcome page is the only publicly available information on this website. All Cubs and their parents use the login supplied to them via email after their registration fee is accepted. Once logged in, you will have full access and be able to add information/comments of your own, but input only what you are comfortable sharing with all other members of the Pack.

Cub Scout Overnight Event BSA Requirements

Posted on Apr 25 2011 - 1:13pm

We have a few exciting overnight events upcoming, so there are a few things all parents need to understand regarding BSA policies that apply and I need to enforce. Official overnight events are registered with the BSA Council. This means that our Cub Leaders must enforce all National BSA policies, and we will be representing the BSA and our Pack. All registered leaders and boys will be covered by the BSA supplemental liability and accident insurance, but parents and siblings are not. Adults will supervise their children. Boys will as usual need to follow directions given by Pack Leaders, and parents will be responsible for discipline as needed. No alcoholic beverages, inappropriate language, or smoking allowed at any time. BSA Youth Protection will be observed at all times by leaders (two-deep leadership). Only relatives may sleep together in the same tent, except boys only or girls only may sleep in a tent but then no adults can be in that tent. Only adults or qualified Boy Scouts (such as siblings or Den Chiefs) holding the proper BSA authorizations will be allowed to tend to any fires, cook over flames, or engage in other potentially unsafe activities such as those involving knives, saws, axes, fuel, matches, etc. Repeated non-compliance with these policies will result in that family being asked to depart without recourse. Bring the medical form found at link below for each boy and leader (not required for parents or siblings), which will be reviewed by the event leaders and held during the event in case of of incident. Scouts are not allowed to self-administer any medications, so parents must hold and dispense. Form ONLY needs parent signature.  This is the same form needed for scout day camp this summer. http://www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/parts_ab.pdf LET’S HAVE A SAFE AND FUN TIME AT THESE EVENTS!

Ticks!

Posted on Apr 22 2011 - 12:32am

Ticks are present at many outdoor locations in our area, and are traditionally present in significant numbers at our Pine Hill Scout Reservation. Preventative measures include long sleeve and tucking pant legs in or using a tie/band around them. Check areas around waistband, underarms, hair, groin area, etc. after returning from these areas and remove any ticks found promptly using these directions: http://www.cdc.gov/ticks/removing_a_tick.html
