Light breakfast foods will be provided in the morning.
We will wrap up the camp-out Saturday morning by 9am.
This is a family-friendly event and siblings are welcome! Note: you do not have to spend the night to participate - a lot of folks just come for the evening cook-out and fun.

March 23rd, 2013For those of you of the Roman Catholic Faith, we will be offering the Parvuli Dei (Children of God) program on March 23rd. The "Parvuli Dei" is a program developed by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting (NCCS) for Bear and Webelos Cub Scouts of the Catholic faith. Its purpose is to help young boys explore a wide range of activities in order to discover the presence of God in their daily lives as members of their family and parish, and also to develop a good positive self-image through the contributions they can make to the group or community. It will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will be held at the Forest Hills Presbyterian Church. We will then attend 5:00 p.m. Mass at St Maurice to complete the requirements. Mrs. Brucker has kindly agreed to teach the class once again. Upon completion, a medal is presented, along with a cloth knot at a future pack meeting. A sign-up sheet will be available at both the 14th and the 21st Den Meeting. Parents are welcomed to stay for the course, but you can also drop them off if you would like. We do encourage you to attend Mass with your son at 5:00 p.m. Scouts are requested to wear their Class A uniforms. Click here for photos of the event.
Blue and Gold Banquet
March 9, 2013We have had to change the date of one of Pack 90's biggest annual events, the Blue & Gold Banquet. This event is traditionally held near the end of February, but a schedule conflict with the St. Maurice Parish calendar makes it necessary to change the date of this event to: Saturday, March 9, 2013. The Blue and Gold Banquet is where is the boys are to be awarded their rank advancement. Remember to work with your Den leaders to ensure your boy is on pace to receive their rank advancement. If you haven't RSVP'ed for the event please contact the Cub Master as soon as possible.

Pack 90 - Zoo Scene Investigations Overnight at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium
November 24, 2012
Due to the rescheduling of Trick or Treating for Saturday, Nov. 3 from 6-8pm in our communities, we have rescheduled our Zoo Overnight for Friday, Nov. 23 at 6:00pm through Saturday morning, Nov. 24. This will be Thanksgiving weekend.
We truly apologize for the change. Nov. 23 was the only remaining Zoo Overnight date available in 2012. We had discussed the possibility of a later start time on Nov. 3 and in the end felt too much would have to be cut from the program.
We understand that some of you who are signed up may be unable to attend on the new date. If you have already paid, we will refund your money to you. This has been a popular event for Pack 90 and it is likely we will do it again next school year.
you will be unable to attend on the new date, please let us know before Thursday, Nov. 15. For those of you still able to attend, payment of $34 per person is due to “Pack 90” on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7:00 at Forest Hills Presbyterian Church.
You may pay by check, cash, or scout account. Pack Treasurer Jeannie Premozic will be there to accept payment. Again, we sincerely apologize for the change and hope most of you will be able to attend on the evening of Friday, Nov. 23.
