To offset the cost of dues, we will be participating in a popcorn sale again this year. The council is using a new vendor this year; details are below.

A Scout can earn a large percentage of all sales to defray Scouting costs! 35% of sales are credited to the scout.

The Popcorn sales will be an essential fundraiser for our Pack, but participation is optional.

It’s that time again. WCC Shooting Sports will run our monthly Air Rifle Competition and Cub Scout BB Shootout. It will be on the second Sunday of each month, from September thru May, inside Fosters Hall at Ockanickon Scout Reservation. Follow the link below to register online for the BB Shootout. Air Rifle Competition does not require advanced registration.

Come out to Ockanickon Scout Reservation and enjoy the opportunity to shoot BB guns with other Cubs, Webelos, and Arrow of Light Scouts. (Sorry, Lion Cubs are not permitted)

Learn how to shoot from NRA Certified Instructors, BB Rangemasters, and Coaches.

Safety is our #1 priority. An NRA Range Safety Officer will be on staff. 

Important Info:

Introduction to BB Shooting

BB activity with a focus on safety & proper shooting techniques. This is not a Shooting Sports award event.

Registration opens TBA

This year, we will be making new Class B t-shirts during our October pack meeting.  We estimate the shirts to cost approximately $10 each, but we will send out the confirmed price as soon as we have it.  We recommend sizing up so your child can wear it for more than one year.  All responses are due by Wednesday, 9/20.  Payment will be accepted via check made out to Cub Scout Pack 230 or via PayPal (paypal.me/cubscoutspack230).  No cash will be accepted.

In order to create a Safe Environment in which our children can thrive, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia imposes certain requirements for all staff members and volunteers.  Please turn them in at the rectory immediately.

Parents cannot go on trips unless they have their clearances.

  • There is a comprehensive list on the parish website.
  • Please Contact Mark Pellegrino, Chartered Organization Representative, with questions.
  • We have recommended that all parents, even if they are not registering, get their clearance to avoid confusion.
  • Anyone who has contact with youth as a volunteer with Troop or Pack 230 must take PROTECTING GOD’S CHILDREN TRAINING CLASS. If you are a registered leader, you must take this class. Committee members or parents who do not have contact with youth do not need to take this class, but it is highly recommended and required for transporting Scouts, not your child, or attending activities with them where there will be other children.
  • Please send David Iannacone (Committee Chair) copies of the following documents: Pennsylvania State Police Clearance, Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance, and the Disclosure Statement Application for Volunteers (signed)

    If any Cub Scout would like to earn one of the Catholic religious medals, please email Jen Wiggins. She will be coordinating the purchase of the activity booklets and the distribution of the medals. The totals for these items come to $20. Please PayPal or make checks payable to “Pack 230.”

The booklets have about 20 little activities the boys are supposed to complete; most only take 10 minutes or so. Then in March or April, they’ll meet in the rectory to discuss what they did. In May at our Scout Mass, celebrated just before the Blue and Gold dinner, The medals will be blessed and presented to the boys after the homily.

First and second grade Cub Scouts can earn the Light of Christ medal. (Although it seems working on the Light of Christ medal is better geared to a second grader than a first grader, but first graders are still eligible.) Third, fourth, and fifth grade cub scouts can earn the Parvuli Dei medal.
