Scouting for Food!


Pack 48 is collecting food for the food pantry in Berlin! How can you help?

We put out 1000 bags today in Berlin Borough and Township. If you received a bag, just leave it out on your steps (feel free to add more bags to it!) next Sunday, November 11th, and we’ll pick it up from you!

If we didn’t leave bags at your door, you can…

1) Drop them off the Wednesday night (11/7) at “the shed” at Holy Communion Lutheran Church on Route 73 in Berlin between 7 and 8 PM. If you don’t know where “the shed” is, call Mike at 856-287-2155 when you pull into the church parking lot and we’ll come grab your donations! We cannot collect donations at this location other days,

2) Drop them off Thursday night (11/8) at the Berlin VFW (34 Chestnut Ave, Berlin, NJ) between 7 PM and 7:45 PM! We cannot collect donations at this location other days or times.

3) If you are in Berlin Borough or Township, contact Cubmaster Mike McCormick via email or text 856-287-2155 by Friday night with your address and which town you are in, and we’ll have someone pick bagged donations up off of your porch on Sunday morning!

Thank you everyone for any donations you can help with! Shares on social media also appreciated!

Blueberry Hill hike

Our July hike is in the books and we headed last Thursday to Blueberry Hill in Gibbsboro! We had a tour of Gibbsboro Community Garden before doing a two miles. Along the way, we ate blueberries before getting a view of the Philly skyline.

Thank to everyone who came out to march in our first 4th of July Parade!  It was a HOT one, but the Cubs had a great time handing out candy and flyers and most especially running into the sprinkler!

Big thank you also to Crew 148 and Troop 48 for marching with us!

Pictures are now up on the website! If you need the password again, just message Mike!

Pack 48 Family Day at the Phillies!

IMG_5277Pack 48 will be going to see the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia on Sunday July 22nd , with first pitch at 1:35 pm  (Phillies Vs. Padres)!

Tickets are just $16 each!  Family and friends are invited!  Tickets can be paid for by cash or check (made out to PACK 48), and must be turned in no later than Friday, July 13th.  As per Phillies policy, children aged 2 and under do NOT require a ticket as long as they are sitting on someone’s lap.

Tickets will be distributed and/or need to be picked up BEFORE game day so that everyone can get to the game at the time that best suits them.  For folks who haven’t been to a game yet this season, the ballpark now has a wiffleball field, rock climbing wall, and hot dog cannon shooting range that are FREE and well worth getting there early for to check out before the game starts!

Huge thank you to  Shawn Holmes for coordinating this event and handling the tickets!
