About Pack 215

Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 215 of Parsippany, NJ!

Pack 215 is located in Parsippany, New Jersey, and is part of the Fishawack District of Patriots' Path Council. We are chartered by the VFW Post 10184 of Parsippany since 1986.

Pack 215 Scouts

As a Cub Scout, your son or daughter is part of Pack 215. We primarily serve the boys and girls in Kindergarten through 5th grades primarily from Knollwood School, Lake Hiawatha School, Rockaway Meadow School, North Vail School and All Saints Academy, but all are welcome.

The Pack is divided into groups of about 6 to 8 scouts, called Dens.

When We Meet

Monthly Pack Meetings (all Dens) are usually held on the third Friday of the month, September through May. 

The Pack typically meets in the cafeteria of Central Middle School, or alternatively in Lake Hiawatha School's gymnasium.

A Cub Scout Pack is comprised of smaller groups called Dens.  Dens typically meet two evenings a month either at one of the local schools, or a location determined by the Den Leader.   

What Do We Do

The Den will do things, and go places. Each one will be an adventure! They may visit the Police Station and talk to an Patrol Officer, or visit the library and learn why reading is important AND fun. No Cub wants to miss visiting the Fire station and trying on a real fire helmet. And every cub will have a chance to work with their parents to build a Pinewood Derby car and race it at our annual Pinewood Derby in January. And who can forget about the outdoors - fishing, hiking, camping and more!

While having all this fun, your child will learn things about being a good citizen, the importance of conservation and other useful skills like using simple tools and basic safety and first aid. They will never realize how much they take from scouting because it is fun. They will surely see the badges and beltloops they have earned, but to them it is only a visible indicator of the fun they had with their friends.

Scouting provides youth with an opportunity to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence, and reinforce ethical standards. These opportunities not only help them as children, but carry forward as they become adults, improving their relationships, their work lives, their family lives, and the values by which they live. More than 80 percent of children who were Scouts agree that the values they learned in Scouting continue to be very important to them today.
