Cub Scout Pack 54 is the first and original Pack of Roxbury formed in July of 1950, originally sponsored by the Roxbury PTA. Today Pack 54 is sponsored by the Succasunna United Methodist Church on Main Street in Succasunna. This is where we hold our monthly pack meetings. There are currently 17 member scouts.
The Purposes of Cub Scouting
Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys who are in kindergarten through fifth grade (or 5 – 10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA’s three membership divisions.
The 10 purposes of Cub Scouting are:
|– Character Development||– Respectful Relationships|
|– Spiritual Growth||– Personal Achievement|
|– Good Citizenship||– Friendly Service|
|– Sportsmanship and Fitness||– Fun and Adventure|
|– Family Understanding||– Preparation for Boy Scouts|
Cub Scouting members join a Cub Scout pack and are assigned to a den,
usually a group of six to eight boys. Lions (Kindergarten), Tiger Cubs (first-graders), Wolf Cub Scouts (second-graders), Bear Cub Scouts (third-graders), and Webelos Scouts (fourth- and fifth-graders) meet at least once a month.
Once a month, all of the dens and family members gather for a pack meeting under the direction of a Cubmaster and pack committee. The committee includes parents of boys in the pack and members of the chartered organization.
