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.

Announcements

  • 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.

  • Zoo Overnights 2013 On October 12th, the pack spent the night at the Worlds of Discovery building where the scouts learned about reptiles and various other animals at the zoo.  They had a behind the scenes tour of the sea lions and a night time scavenger hunt in Kid's Kingdom.  The pack also had a live animal visit during the event.

  • Geologist/Caving On Sat, Oct 5, the Webelos of Pack 90 traveled to Farmington, PA to work on their geology pin while exploring the wonders of the Laurel Caverns.  This is something that the Webelos do each fall and it always a highlight of their year.

  • Fall Campout - Camp Guyasuta Each year, in the spring and fall, Pack 90 has a local overnighter.  Some come just for the evening, and some spend the night, either camping in tents or bunking in a lodge.  This fall's event was on Sep 13 and was held at Camp Guyasuta.  The families of Pack 90 joined together for hot dogs, s'mores and lots of fun.  The scouts got to explore the camp and in the morning hiked the Liken Nature trail to see Wash Board Falls.  For an excellent history of the camp, check the article, "Guyasuta: Warrior, Estate & Home to Boy Scouts", written by Ed Galloway, our Tiger den leader.  http://d-scholarship.pitt.edu/10839/4/CampGuyasutaGalloway.pdf

  • Pittsburgh Pirate Game On Aug 18, Pack 90 families visited PNC Park and watched the division-leading Pirates take on the Diamondbacks of Arizona.  It was a beautiful late-summer day and all of the kids received free hats and coolers--plus, those that stuck out the 16-inning game ran the bases at the end.

Troop 90 will be holding their annual Spaghetti Dinner on April 5th 2014. Troop 90 supports the Pack in numerous ways-Den Chiefs and assistance at the Blue and Gold to name a few.

Summer Camp

It is hard to believe on this cold and snowy March 2nd that it is time to think of Summer Camp. I have attached links to sign up sheets for the dates that Pack 90 will be attending.
 
Here are some of the details:
 
Webelos Camp-which will be for those who currently are the Bear or Webelos I rank-, will be July 27th-through July 31st 2014. Cost is $225 for youth and $120 for adults.
 
 A down payment of $50 per youth and $25 per adult is due on or before the March 29th Pack meeting in order for us to qualify for the early bird discount. Cash. Check, or Scout account is accepted
 
If payment is not received by that date, your name will be dropped from the roster. You can still decide to register at a later date-subject to space availability- and at an increasingly higher cost.
 
(By June 1st $240/$130, After June 2nd $255/$140)
 
Balance of $175/$95 will be due at the final Pack meeting in April
