PARSIPPANY — A new Cub Scout pack is starting on Friday, September 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the gym of Eastlake School. Cub Scout Pack 14 will accept boys and girls in grades K-5 from Eastlake and Lake Parsippany schools.
Cub Scouts is a family-oriented program where boys and girls share fun and adventures with their parents. Members of the pack are placed in dens with children who are the same age. Boys will be in all-boy dens and girls will be in all-girl dens. But they will have the same Cub Scout fun that boys have been having for years.
Each den will meet twice a month to learn new skills, make projects and play games. The den meetings will be held at each school. And once a month, all the dens will come together for a big pack meeting usually on the second Friday or the month.
Pack 14 may not be ready for camping right away but we will visit the Fishawack Cub Scout Camporee on October 20 during the day and participate in archery, bb, fishing and more outdoor fun.
The pack will also do community service projects, march in parades, take field trips to special locations and, of course, like every Cub Scout pack, have a race of Pinewood Derby Cars that the boys and girls make themselves (with some help from parents).
One parent who has already volunteered to be a den leader is Nilay Modi. He says, “My son was thrilled to put on his Cub Scout uniform. We hope many families will join us for fun in the year ahead”.
