Pack 108 - Wayne, NJ

                                    

WHO WE ARE

We are part of the Ramapo Valley District of the Northern New Jersey Council of the Boy Scouts of America.  Our Pack is primarily represented by boys attending the Wayne Schools in grades K though 5.  We are sponsored by Our Lady of the Valley RC Church in Wayne.

WHEN WE MEET

Den meetings are held once a month for the Lion and Tiger Dens (entry level) and all other Dens meet twice a month.  Additional activities and special programs may be scheduled as needed for specific Den requirements.

Monthly Pack meetings occur on Friday nights.  All Dens participate in the Pack meetings and includes parent participation to plan activities as well as entertainment and food.

All meetings are held at Our Lady of the Valley RC Church in Father Rugel Hall.

COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES

Here are some the active projects we do to service the community:

Scouting for Food: Scouting for Food is a nationwide effort by the Boy Scouts of America. Each Spring, Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops and Venturing Crews fan out across America to collect donations of food to help those in need, and current statistics reflect that 9% of people right here in New Jersey go hungry each day.  We collect donations of food in front of local Wayne stores usually at the supermarkets. All of the food we collect will again be donated to, and distributed to those in need by, the Community Foodbank of New Jersey.

Support our Troops: We have taken time out during our monthly Pack meetings to collect food and other items to send over to the troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Last year, the Pack got readily involved and was able to obtain a nice assortment of items. The entire Pack all chipped in and helped to pack up the collected items for the troops. It is a very fun evening and we are looking forward to doing this annually.

SCOUT FUN

Camping: On an annual basis we have two Camping Trips (one in the fall and one in the spring) that we go on as an entire Pack (all Dens).  You need not be an experienced camper to enjoy the weekends.  Everyone helps each other and we especially enjoy the fun activiites that take place around the campfire. 

Pinewood Derby: Every March, we conduct our annual Pinewood Derby in which the boys build their own cars from the kit that is provided by the Pack.  This is a great father and son activity which always is the highlight of the Scout season.  We award the top 3 finishers from each Den as well as recognize all the boys with an award based on the different categories (i.e. Best Design).
