The Adventure starts now!

The adventure starts with Cub Scouting, a year-round family program designed for boys in the 1st through 5th grades, or roughly 7 to 10 years of age.  The program emphasizes shared leadership, learning about the community, family understanding, character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Boys meet typically once a month for a den meeting (boys in their grade) and for a pack meeting (all boys grades 1-5.) Throughout the year, there are exciting overnight outings (accompanied by parents) at places like the Museum of Science, Battleship Cove, and Nobscot Reservation. Boys work on age-appropriate achievements at home, and earn badges and pins which are awarded at pack meetings. 

Young boys grow up fast.  Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Cub Scouting today.  The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.

Pack 140 welcomes ALL boys and ALL families.
