Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 19!

Cub Scout Pack 19 has been providing activities for boys in the Strasburg area for many years. We are fortunate to be able to meet in our own Scout House, located by the Strasburg pool. We hold Den (grade level) meetings weekly to learn a variety of skills including problem solving skills, respecting our family, friends, and environment, and outdoor skills.  We also hold two fundraisers per year, Popcorn and Pork Barbecue, which allows us to keep cost low for our scouts.

Cub Scouting provides the opportunity to have fun while developing new skills while participating in crafts, games, outdoor activities, field trips, camping etc. Cub Scouting is for boys in first grade through fifth grade. Boys entering sixth grade and up are invited to join the Boy Scouts.

Strasburg Pack 19 is a small, friendly, and family-oriented pack. Boys are able to join any time during the year. Siblings are welcome at all pack events and are invited to join in our activities.  Parent involvement is also highly encouraged. (Parents are required to attend all overnight events. 1st-3rd grade parents are required to attend all activities.)

If you have additional questions, please email Chad Cauler at pack19cubscouts@gmail.com, or call 717-725-2406.
