Cub Scout Pack 185

Cub Scout Pack 185 is chartered to St.Marks Church located at 1135 Oliver St. in North Tonawanda. Weekly Den meetings are on Tuesdays from 6:30 pm until 7:30 pm. Throughout the year our pack participates in a variety of BSA events including Summer Camp at Camp Scouthaven. We also do monthly feild trips to earn belt loops and badges and also trips just for fun.
If you have any questions regarding Cub Scouts please contact our Cubmaster Randy Smith at (315) 561-2254 or Committee Chair Daniel Klaes @ (716) 578-4586.

Parent Volunteers

As we move into the 2014 - 2015 year of scouting, we need to look to the future. As your scout moves along each year from Tiger to Wolf then Bear and finally Webelos, so do most of the parents and leaders. That means that each year the pack has to replace those leadership positions held by the parents. This can only be done by volunteers. Without the efforts of the parents, the pack can not function. It's that simple! Please consider filling a position listed below, if not now then for the start of the next scouting year in June. Please see Dan for details.

Pack Committee: This is an essential position and can be a behind the scenes leadership role. The Committee is the organizing arm of the Pack and critical to its success. So goes the committee, so goes the pack! 

Assistant Den Leaders:  Den Leaders can't do it alone! Each Den should have at least one, if not more Assistant Den Leaders. This is also another great way to get your feet wet. 

Scout Parent Unit Coordinator:  This position is a member of the Pack Committee but with a very specific focus- to help the parents of the Pack become more involved! See the link for details: Scout Parent

Please consider volunteering! We need your talents and commitment for the Pack to be successful in making Scouting a positive, rewarding and FUN experience for your sons. 

Cub Scout Insignia Guide

To help with all of those confusing questions about the Cub Scout uniform and what goes where and why, I have included a link here to the BSA National Web Site that address these questions. The Scout Uniform should be a point of pride for each scout, so that he may show off his accomplishments. As such, each scout should make every effort to keep his uniform neat and orderly in appearance. This guide will provide you with answers to most of your questions.

Attention Scouts!! Earn the Recruiter Badge

You can earn the recruiter badge simply by asking your friends to join our pack. All you need to do is tell a friend of yours how much fun you have in Cub Scouts and ask them to come and check it out. If they join, you earn the Recruiter badge. It's that simple! Be sure that your friend mentions that you asked him to join.
