Scouting Around Epping

Boy ScoutsCub Scout Pack 136

Pack 136 is looking for boys and families who are looking for adventures. Cub Scouts is for boys entering grades 1 to 5. Cub Scouting has ideals of spiritual and character growth, citizenship training and personal fitness. The Scout Oath is a pledge of duty to God and family. The Scout Law is a simple formula for good Cub Scouting and good citizenship. The Cub Scout motto, “Do Your Best,” is a code of excellence. We believe in involving families and Cub Scouting provides opportunities for families to work and play together and have fun together.

If you would like information about joining Cub Scouts, please contact our Cubmaster, Jeff Falkingham at
