General Pack 168 Information

Cub Scout Pack 168 is a family oriented program of fun activities for boys in the first through fifth grade.  We have been sponsored by St. Theresa's Roman Catholic Church for over 51 years -- since 1956!  

The Pack meets in St. Theresa's School on Monday nights during the school year.  There are no meetings over the summer but there is some family activities planned.  

If you are in the 1st through 5th grade and think you may want to join, have a parent or guardian send an e-mail to pack168comm@pack168bsa.org and one of our adult leaders will contact you.  

Members in Pack 168 come from St. Theresa School, St. Andrews School, John Winthrop School, Blackham School, Frenchtown School as well as Home School.

 Blue and Gold Banquet

The highlight of our Scout Year is our Annual Blue and Gold Banquet.  At the banquet, scouts and their families enjoy a wonderful meal with accompanied by a unique program of entertainment and awards.  

The evening is an opportunity for our Scouts' extended families to enjoy our pack and the accomplishments of the boys.

At the banquet, scouts collected toiletries and items for "Homes for the Brave", a transitional housing program for veterans in Bridgeport.   Over 100 awards were presented to our hard-working scouts during a production of teh pack 168 version of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears".

The highlight of the evening was the awarding of the "Arrow of Light" to four of our Webelos II scouts who then crossed over into Trumbull Boy Scout Troops 65 & 68.
