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.

  • Winter Camp 2016 The Pack attend Winter Weekends at Camp Independence in February.  Even though there was very little snow, everyone had a great time with the alternate activities.  The cubs enjoyed activities such as team building exercises, frisbee golf, and broomball.  All of the scouts participated in the camp fire skits which were part of the evening activities.  Hopefully we get more snow next year!!!!

  • Pinewood Derby 2015 The Pack recently held its annual Pinewood Derby at Keane Hall.  The scouts did a wonderful job at constructing their cars.  It was very apparent that there were very creative minds at work.  Congratulations to Rocco Sinciline who is a member of the Bear Den for being our Grand Champion.   The Pack also held their Friends of Pack 90 alumni race the evening before.  Congrats to Brian Sinciline for winning that event.  Great job to everyone!!!

  • Summer Camp 2015 Ten Cub Scouts and 15 Webelos spent four days and three nights at Camp Independence. We spent the days shooting BB guns and archery, rock throwing and slingshots, bouldering and BMX (Webelos only), field games, “mining,” sponge wars, fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boating, nature hiking, cooking S’mores over the fire and lots more! Other than one rainfall that each group experienced, we had wonderful weather too. Jackson Galloway tied with a Scout from another Pack for most bulls-eyes in BBs (5) and Ian Alexander won biggest fish caught (he’s got the touch!). If you’ve not yet gone to summer camp, I highly recommend it and would love to talk with you about it.

  • Fishing Derby 2015 Did you hear about the one that got away? Well that wasn’t the case at the fishing derby on June 20! All 11 Scouts who attended caught at least one fish. Congratulations to Nate Deer, who caught the BIGGEST fish, and Ian Alexander, who caught the MOST fish. Nice job boys!

Cyber Chip

Cyber Chip Requirement

Our youth are spending more time than ever using digital media for education, research, socializing and fun. To help families and volunteers keep youth safe while online, the Boy Scouts of America introduces the Cyber Chip. All Scouts in Pack 90 must earn the Cyber Chip as part of his progress towards earning his respective rank award. The program is designed with special modules for boys in grades 1-3 and 4-5. When completed, each Cub Scout will be given a Cyber Chip pocket card.

For details and how to get started, check out http://www.scouting.org/cyberchip.aspx.


Upcoming Events

Summer Camp

It’s hard to imagine Summer Camp as we prepare to leave for Winter Camp, but the time to register Scouts for camp is almost upon us.  Since the District made a few date changes to camp this year, we are offering two Webelos camps and one Cub camp.  Here are the dates:

Note that there are TWO different Webelos camps to pick from: a 4-day (lead by me) versus a 5-day (lead by Mrs. Monique Powell) so please be aware. These dates are for either Webelos I or Webelos II rank.

Cost:      4 day (3 nights) Webelos and Cubs:

$181 per Scout and $96 per adult

             5 day (4 nights) Webelos:                                                        

$236 per Scout and $131 per adult

Remember, your Scout will move to his next rank on June 1, so if you are a Tiger now, you’ll be a Wolf on June 1.  If you’re a Bear, you’ll be a Webelos I on June 1. Watch for additional info on summer camp in a few weeks.

Please use the sign-up links above to let the leaders know who is interested in going. You are NOT committed if you sign-up on Bring-It; this is just for us to gauge interest. However, look for a registration form soon for you to officially reserve your spot with a modest down payment.

Laurel Highlands Council offer “camperships” to families in need of financial support to attend camp. If you’d like more information on this program, please visit this site:

Change to Scouting

Hello Everyone,

Recently, The Boy Scouts of America has made changes to the Cub Scouting Program.  The curriculum has been changed for the first time in close to 40 years. Books are now available for the new programs for purchase at the Scout Store at Flag Plaza.  

Other current events are recent changes in Pennsylvania law that has recently gone into effect regarding required clearances when in the presence of minors.  Our Cubmaster, Ed Galloway will be sending out communications regarding how this effects our Pack.  Please stay tuned for more information.
