Cresskill Cub Scout Pack 121

The overall aims of scouting are to develop a child's character, train him in good citizenship, and encourage him to become more fit—physically, mentally, and morally.

The vision of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare America's youth to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.

The rocket launches this week were awesome and it looked like everyone had a blast :)


We will hold our Pinewood derby race at our next Pack meeting on Wednesday, April 28th at the Cresskill Recreation Center Outdoor Pavilion.

  • We will start the weigh-in at 6:00 pm. Cars should be ready to race at weigh-in. So paint must be dry and the cars at their race weight, not to exceed 5 oz.

  • Please contact me if you never picked up your pinewood derby kit or perhaps have misplaced it since January, as we have a few extra.

  • Scouts should come in Uniform

  • All scouts and attendees must also bring and wear an appropriate cloth or medical facemask.

Please read the following for information related to social distancing and safety precautions. Please contact me if you have any concerns or questions about attending.

Please do not come If you or your children have a fever or are experiencing covid-19 symptoms or if anyone in your household is currently diagnosed with COVID 19. Below is a list of COVID-19 symptoms:

  • Fever or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

Precautions and mitigation strategies are important, but they cannot eliminate the potential for exposure to COVID-19 or any other illness when in-person activities resume. People with COVID-19 may show no signs or symptoms of illness, but they can spread the virus. Some people may be contagious before their symptoms occur. The fact is that someone with COVID-19 may pass the required health screenings and be allowed into program activities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. If you are in this group, please ensure you have approval from your health care provider prior to resuming in-person Scouting activities.

Every member, volunteer and family must evaluate their unique circumstances and make an informed decision before attending in-person activities. We hope this information will be helpful as you make that choice.
