When you’re a kid fun comes first. Finals, driver’s ed, and summer jobs will arrive soon enough. Cub Scouts lets boys have fun while teaching them skills that will help them later on. From the thrill of shooting an arrow to learning how to transform a block of wood into a race car, Cub Scouts is one thrill after another.

The Mt. Lebanon Scouting leaders have all come together to form a Cub Scout sign up night to be held at the Bird Park fire circle and pavilion on Monday, September 21st between 6 and 8PM. All boys ages 7-10 years old or grades 1-5 are invited to take part in an evening of fun, games, and instruction. Qualified leaders from all packs representing all elementary schools in Mt. Lebanon will be there to monitor and answer any questions parents may have about the scouting program.

For further information about our Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops (boys 11-17yrs.), and Venture Crew (Co-ed 14-20 yrs.) in Mt. Lebanon, please visit You can also email John Neuhaus at
