  • A family unit, while Cub Scouting is for Kindergarten – fifth grade boys and girls, we welcome the whole family to attend and participate in most of our activities.
  • A racing unit with our very successful and popular Pinewood Derby Races held every January for scouts and siblings.
  • A trained leader unit, insisting that all registered leaders complete Youth Protection and Leader Specific training to help make sure our program is top-notch and our scouts are in a safe scouting environment.

About Cub Scouts

Since its beginning, the Cub Scout program has been a fun and educational experience concerned with values. Besides providing a positive place where boys and girls can enjoy safe, wholesome activities, Cub Scouting focuses on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service.

From building a pinewood derby® car to learning to roast the perfect marshmallow with friends at a family campout, your child will LOVE Cub Scouts.

Spring Hike @ Pyramid Mountain
Apr 11 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Pack 142 would like to invite all members to our Spring Hike!
Event Location: Pyramid Mountain, 472 Boonton Avenue, Montville Township, 07045
Dress Requirements: Pack T-Shirt/Layers

Event Details:  We will be hiking the Turkey Mountain trails at Pyramid mountain and will get to view the waterfall that is sure to be a highlight of the trip.  Our plan is to start the hike at 1pm.  So please try to arrive by 12:55pm; we will congregate in the parking lot near the visitor center.  Be sure to bring water and snacks, even if you don't need to meet any hiking requirements (see below).   The hike is approximately 3 1/4 miles with moderate difficulty (some hills but good trails with solid footing).   I pre-hiked the trail in 90 minutes, but with the entire pack I would expect it to be a 2.5-3 hour hike.

Thanks,

Steve

 _______________________________________
Scouts that are working towards their hiking requirement should bring a backpack with the Cub Scout Six Essentials for Hiking.  This includes the Tigers, Wolves and Bears.
  1. First Aid Kit – A kit should include a few adhesive bandages, some moleskin (a sticky bandage that you can put over a blister to keep it from getting worse or rubbing), and a bandage or two.
  2. Filled Water Bottle – Make sure it is big enough to carry water for you to drink through your whole hike and back. And make sure it is full when you start out! It is not safe to drink water you find along the trail.
  3. Flashlight – Check your batteries to make sure they have plenty of juice. Your flashlight will be used only in an emergency, so save the batteries for times when you really need them!
  4. Trail Food – Trail mix or a granola bar provide quick energy when you need it.
  5. Sun Protection – Sunscreen should be SPF 30 or greater. A hat is good to have, too!
  6. Whistle – It's only for emergencies, but a whistle will last longer than your voice.
We are looking forward to welcoming some new families and visitors that are interested in finding out more about Pack 142 to our pack meeting! You are welcome to invite any friends and families with boys that are Cub Scout age (grades K-5). Please be sure to RSVP to let us know you are coming and how many guests to expect.
 
If one or more friends of your Cub Scout join our pack, your Cub Scout and all new friends that they recruit will receive a “My Best Friend is a Scout” patch. Your Cub Scout will also be presented with a “Recruiter” patch.
