Lion Cub Scouts – New Rank
Lion cub scouts can now join Cub Pack 285. Starting in the fall of 2016, the Cub Scouts started a program for Kindergarten-aged boys. The program does not change the current ranks, but reaches a new age group. Cub Pack 285 was proud to be a part of the pilot program, bringing scouting to the Kindergartners of Camp Hill, PA!
