Hear what some of our parents are saying about Cub Scouts Pack 133!
"Our family has been involved with Cub Scouts Pack 133 for over 5 years now. Growing up, I was a Girl Scout and my brother was a Boy Scout and we both have so much to attribute to our scouting experiences that have carried through to our adult lives. We are fortunate to have an amazing Pack here in Mendham for our boys to enjoy. There are so many reasons we truly enjoy Cub Scouts but one main reason is that scouting allows our entire family to participate together. With Scouting, we have the opportunity to actively engage with our sons as they walk the path to the Arrow of Light. Every member of a family is welcome to attend all the events and experience things like outdoor camping. Other draws to Scouting is getting our sons off electronics and outside! Scouting also allows our sons to try new things, learn tons of important life skills, how to set and achieve goals, and to develop their character. Now that my oldest son has crossed over into Boy Scouts he will be able to assist his younger brothers as they strive to also become a Boy Scout. Scouting has so many positive aspects all rolled into one."
Lauren Garofalo, mom of Geno, Nico and Santino
“The outdoor activities sponsored by the Scouts are fun and engaging events, but what I appreciate even more about Cub Scouts as a parent is their strong focus on character building. Each meeting is crafted with the goal of imparting values like honesty, conservation, and community service into the next generation of young men, in extension of the principles that we teach at home. I also love that my sons will have a social “safe space” to grow up with their peers. As anxiety becomes increasingly common in children, Cub Scouts enables our boys to build their confidence in a stable group of friends, without fear of judgement.”
Theresa Dijkstra, mom of Roan and Arden
"Pack 133 provides so many opportunities to be outside and have hands-on fun! My sons have enjoyed a range of experiences, from the small setting of den meetings to the larger scale pack meetings, they can socialize with friends while learning about relevant and useful life topics. My boys are becoming knowledgeable about hiking and camping, but also practicing teamwork and taking time out to help others by participating in service projects. I feel that Cub Scouts is helping me raise well-rounded children, and Pack 133 specifically supports us in raising boys who are smart, respectful and adventurous."
Vickie Spataro, mom of Nicholas and Joey
