What the Entire Pack is "Doing" Together...

New Cubmaster!

Pack 37 has a new leader of the Pack. Thank you so much to Rob Pfuhler for all your leadership over the past years, taking two sons from tiger through Sr. Webelos, and beyond onto the trail toward Eagle. Your service to the Pack cannot be forgotten and we are glad to have you stay on board as the Pack Committee Chairperson. Rob and Cheryl are cherished members of the Pack 37 family, so it is not easy to see you move onward.

Pack 37 will continue to be one of the premiere Cub Scout Packs around with Mike Boyle leading the adventure. However, it takes a Pack of Leaders to ensure the greatest amount of fun can be had. We have several leadership opportunities available, so parents feel free to reach out for more information. It's only one hour a week of your time and the boys will immensely appreciate it!

More to come as we (hopefully) transition into Spring and we can start doing some service projects and having more fun outdoors. Until then, keep plugging away at those adventure requirements and get outside when you can!


Cub Scout Registration

posted Jul 7, 2017, 6:16 AM by Mike Boyle   [ updated Mar 14, 2018, 1:23 PM ]


 You can join Pack 37 at any time


Typically, all boys will meet with their Den (boys of the same age) 2 to 3 times per month, during which time they will learn many skills and values they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Cub Scouting is much more than meetings though. 


Pack 37 is a very active Pack. There is a saying that "Scouting is Outing", and that's the philosophy we follow. In the last year, our scouts have taken field trips to the United States Military Academy at West Point and The Intrepid. We also spent a night aboard the Battleship New Jersey. Those trips are in addition to three camping trips per year and almost weekly events we have planned at local parks or Nature Centers which allow our scouts to get away from the video games and come to appreciate the great outdoors.


For the upcoming year, we are planning an overnight trip to the U.S. Army Academy at West Point as well as visits to various educational and adventurous sites throughout the area. Click on the "Photo Gallery" link to see photos of past events.


In addition to fun activities like field trips, we also emphasize service to our community.  We have a number of service projects throughout the year.  Our most important project is “Scouting for Food”, where we collect non-perishable items for the St. Teresa’s Food Pantry to feed the needy in our neighborhood.


In short, Cub Scouts is the most educational, cost effective and FUN activity your son can join.  I hope you join us. Please e-mail me if you are interested.

Blue & Gold Dinner

posted Jan 9, 2017, 3:29 PM by Mike Boyle   [ updated Mar 14, 2018, 1:49 PM ]

Thank you to all that made this event our best yet! Looking forward to next year's Dinner! Keep your calendars open for 2/24/19!

Sunday, February 25 at 2 pm in the Gym.  This is one of the biggest days of the year. All scouts who have earned their rank badges will receive them along with whatever loops they may have earned.  We will also be giving out the Outdoor Achievement Awards, Service Hours awards and much more.  Plus, it’s a fun day.  The event is fully catered with delicious food from our friends at  the Bean Post Pub.  We will also have many outstanding raffles for you to take a chance on.  This is an event for the whole family, so please bring grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.  The cost is $20 for adults and $15 for children 6 and over, meaning the Lions are free. Because we need to get a headcount to the caterer and because for the first time we have to rent extra chairs and tables due to the size of the pack, we need a firm headcount by February 12.  Please click on this link to RSVP-
 button If you cannot attend, we would appreciate you tell us that as well, as it will save someone from having to make a phone call.  As far as payments go, someone will be collecting them at the Pinewood Derby.  Cash or check payable to Pack 37. You may also pay your Den Leader at one of your meetings.  If you would like to pay by credit card, please go to 

Palm Sunday Bake Sale

posted Nov 3, 2014, 7:35 AM by Mike Boyle   [ updated Mar 14, 2018, 2:03 PM ]

Next Sunday, March 25 is the Cub Scout Palm Sunday Bake sale.  This sale helps to raise money for the pack to buy supplies for camping at Pouch Camp and Cub World, as well as helping to pay for supplies for all the other scout activities and pack nights throughout the year.

Latest Update:

We have plenty of Sugar Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookies and Brownies. Thank you so much!! 🙂

Other items to consider are Oatmeal Cookies, magic bars or other type bars (they sold so well last bake sale by the way), thumb print cookies, butterscotch cookies and short bread cookies, muffins, rice krispy treats decorated or with something like chocolate chips in them, cake pops, truffles, strawberry cupcakes or some other flavors, pies, strudel and so on. 

Please stick with the packaging we suggested in our original email. Platters are a great idea but most people like to buy things in smaller size but end up buying multiple items. 

Thank you so much to those of you who have signed up already! 

Talk soon!

Saint Teresa:
We will start setting up at 6:30-7:00. We need to set up tables and signs and be ready for the 7:30 am mass. 
We will stay there until about 2:00 pm because the last mass is at 12:30 and then we will have to clean up.
 There are 3 masses at St. Teresa's 7:30, 10 & 12:30. 
For this to be successful we need volunteers.  We will need volunteers to set up, clean up and to be present to sell items. If you can lend a folding table, please let us know.  We need to bring them.
We also need you to bake some items to sell!
We need the following items- ALL WITHOUT NUTS- PLEASE!
Loaf cakes
Bundt cakes
Gluten Free baked Goods

 Cake Pops

Rice Krispy Treats/pops

We will gladly accept any suggestions you have for additional items.  We know that these items sell the best. 

If possible, for sanitary reasons, items need to be package or wrapped individually.
Cookies can be put in baggies-3 to a bag if small or 2 to bag if larger.
All other items (brownies, muffins, loaf cakes and bunds cakes) should be wrapped individually in CLEAR wrapping or cellophane. The decorated bags are pretty but make it difficult to see the items 
Scouts are encouraged to attend. They should be on their best behavior (because we outside of the Church and they will be representing as a Cub Scout) and in their Class A uniforms. 
Without the funds from the bake sale, some activities may need to be cut or registration costs will need to increase.  
Please email back directly to myself and Marissa if you can bake and volunteer time so we have an idea as to what is needed or  if you have any questions.  

Thanks in advance.
