Welcome to Pack 90 of Forest Hills, PA!

Pack90 Introduction


Cub Scouting is a year-round family program for boys in the 1st through 5th grades. The program emphasizes shared leadership, learning about the community, family understanding, character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.  Young boys grow up fast. Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Cub Scouting today. The time that you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.

  • Science Night with Cubscout Pack 90 Dr. Bandik, a chemistry professor at the University of Pittsburgh (along with his posse of grad students) has done presentations once or twice a year for the scouts (part of the Science Pin).  This year, they used liquid nitrogen to condense oxygen into liquid and carbon dioxide into a semi-solid fluid.  They also made slime (a polymer) and crystals to bring home.

Fall Overnigther Sept 26-27

The area next to the Forest Hills pool where we normally camp is under construction, so this fall our overnighter will be at Camp Guyasuta, just off the Highland Park bridge. The event will be similar to our regular overnighter, but should be even better given that we’ll be camping at an actual Scout Camp. Join us as we enjoy games, hot dogs, S’mores, and toasted marshmallows cooked over a campfire. Stay for just the evening or camp out all night under the stars. Bring your tents and chairs and sit around the campfire with your fellow scouts and parents. The entire family is welcome! An email announcement will be sent soon.  Check out Camp Guyasuta at http://www.campguyasuta.com.
