Membership

Membership in our Pack is open to any family in any neighborhood, and new Cub Scouts are welcome to join at any time.

Pack 187 also welcomes the participation of boys with special needs. The Cub Scout's motto is "Do Your Best," which means each boy is encouraged to perform to the best of his ability.

If you have any questions or concerns about participation in our pack, please contact us. Contact Cubmaster Christopher Dono for more information at Cubmasterdono187@aol.com.


Tigers, Wolfs, Bears ... oh my!

When new Cub Scouts join our pack, they’re assigned to a den: Tiger Cubs (first-graders), Wolf Cub Scouts (second-graders), Bear Cub Scouts (third-graders), and Webelos Scouts (fourth- and fifth-graders)

Each den meets Friday nights from 7PM-8:45PM in the Brooklyn Prospect Charter School, 3002 Fort Hamilton Parkway, Brooklyn, NY 11218-1699.

Cub Scouts is not a “drop-off" activity. A parent or guardian should accompany each scout at activities to serve as his teacher and helper (also known as the boy's "Akela"). Cub Scouting helps parents and sons grow closer, and your involvement as a parent of a Cub Scout is vital.

If you'd like to learn more about the den your son would join, just click on the den's home page on our site:


Our Pack Philosophy

Pack 187 emphasizes fun and family participation in its mission to help boys develop character and leadership skills. After all, if the boys aren’t having fun, they won’t want to attend our meetings and events! That's not to say that the boys won't learn a lot -- they'll learn about everything from camping to community involvement to sporting activities, and much more.

We hope they will form lasting friendships with the boys in their den -- and that the families of those boys will have to chance to meet and form great relationships based on shared experiences, goals, and triumphs.

Why Become a Cub Scout?

Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys who are in 1st through 5th grade (or 6-10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting.

The 10 purposes of Cub Scouting are:
  1. Character Development
  2. Spiritual Growth
  3. Good Citizenship
  4. Sportsmanship and Fitness
  5. Family Understanding
  6. Respectful Relationships
  7. Personal Achievement
  8. Friendly Service
  9. Fun and Adventure
  10. Preparation for Boy Scouts
