All About Pack 101
Cub Pack 101 is based out of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Kutztown, PA. Cub Pack 101 was established in November 1958.
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.
Cub Scouting is an active program. Boys and Girls learn by doing, and there’s no end to the fun things that Cub Scouts do in their dens, as a pack, and at special events. With activities held at every level—family, den, and pack—Cub Scouting provides a year-round program of fun and learning for boys, girls and their families.
Cub Scout Camping
Learn to live in the outdoors. Camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world.
Cub Scout Derbies
Racing in a Cub Scout Derby is great fun! You'll get to design your racing vehicle, work with your parents to build it and see it perform on the racetrack on race day.
Outings and Field Trips
"Outing" is a big part of scouting. Cub Scouts get out and about with many kinds of outdoor fun, such as field trips, hikes, nature and conservation projects.
Doing service projects together is one way that Cub Scouts keep their promise "to help other people."
Den and Pack Meetings
Den meetings are the stepping-stones by which a boy or girl progresses through the Cub Scout program. At pack meetings, families celebrate their achievements along the way.
Blue and Gold Banquets
In February, when Scouting celebrates its "birthday", packs across the country hold blue and gold banquets. In nearly all packs, the banquet is a very special event where our oldest scouts are "crossed-over" to the Boy Scout Program.
Cub pack 101 is part of the Hawk Mountain Council #528. The Hawk Mountain Council is chartered by the Boy Scouts of America to serve Berks County, Schuylkill County, and part of Carbon County [Panther Valley School District] from its Council Service Center at 5027 Pottsville Pike, Reading, PA 19605, and serves nearly 6,000 youth members and over 4,000 adult leaders.
While COVID-19 has brought a lot of challenges to keeping the scouting programs alive, Cub Pack 101 has found ways to safely interact in groups to bring a fun and inviting program to life.
