Proudly serving the Hanover Township area and beyond, Cub Scout Pack 368 meets at Advent Moravian Church located at 3730 Jacksonville Rd, Bethlehem, PA 18017.
Pack 368 is a member of the Northampton District of the Minsi Trails Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
Since 1930, the Cub Scout program has been weaving lifetime values into fun and educational activities designed to assist parents in strengthening character, developing good citizenship, enhancing physical fitness, and building self-esteem and ethical values in our youth.
Membership in Cub Scouts is open to all children in grades K-5.
Starting with the 2023-2024 season, Pack 368 will be participating in the BSA Family Den Pilot Program which means that dens will comprise both boys and girls.
Imagine a program that can help your child learn, grow, and mature while they is having fun; where there are activities in which you can participate together with the result of getting to know each other better and strengthening your relationship. This is part of what Scouting is. Every activity gives you and your child the chance to discover and share together.
What does your child learn in Scouting? Well, it is a lot more than crafts, games, and outdoor skills. All of the Cub Scout programs are carefully designed to teach your child something they will use throughout their life. Every activity is specifically designed for your child's age, development, and personal needs. Here are just of few of the things your child will gain though Cub Scouts:
The feeling of belonging to a positive and fun group of children and caring adults.
New social skills that will help them get along with others.
New mental skills from reading, writing, planning and organization.
A broader greater understanding of other people and the world around them.
A system of values that will help them grow and make good life decisions.
A concern and caring for people and opportunities to help others.
Self-confidence and stronger self-esteem.
