Join Cub Scouts!

Pack 136 is a group of boys attending KG through fifth grade in the Kennett Consolidated School District and surrounding private schools. ¬†Our Scouts participate in activities that are lots of fun but also teach life skills, build confidence and character, and instill strong core values along the way. ¬†Cub Scouts is a family activity; parents participate with their boys, and siblings are always welcome. The program is flexible and easily accommodates busy families’ schedules. We meet two Tuesdays a month, and also get together for a fun weekend activity each month. ¬†Our Pack is currently open to all interested elementary school boys and their families. Boys may join at any time during the year.

We have a lot of great activities planned this year. ¬† We’ll camp, build and race cars, hike, go skating, visit treehouses, fish, spend the night at the Franklin Institute, roast s’mores, march in parades, collect canned food for the food bank, and so much more. Want to see what Cub Scouts is all about? ¬†Contact us at¬†[email protected]¬†or¬†join us at our next Pack Meeting. ¬†We meet on the third¬†Tuesday of the month¬†¬†@ 6:30, St Gabriel’s Hall, ¬†8910 Gap-Newport Pike, Avondale PA 19311.
