About Pack 298

Pack 298 is part of the Sussex District of the Patriots Path Council in Sussex County, New Jersey. We currently have 30 registered scouts. Our Pack Meetings are held once a month on a Friday night September through May.  June through August we have summertime outings. Join our Pack!

     We accept new scouts all year round so check our calendar and attend the next Pack Production or email us at


     Cub Scout Pack 298, originally chartered in January 1991, serves 1st through 5th grade boys in the Northern New Jersey area. At present, Pack 298 has a large number of Scouts organized into Tiger (1st grade), Wolf (2nd grade), Bear (3rd grade), and Webelos (4th & 5th grade) dens. The Chartered Organization for Pack 298 is Hamburg Fire Department.


      Our mission is to deliver to the boys and their families in the Sussex county area the Cub Scout Program developed by the Boy Scouts of America. We will do our best to deliver the highest quality program possible.


     We will offer a high quality program to all boys in grades one through five. Our sons will advance in rank each year, beginning with Tiger Cubs and continuing through the Arrow of Light in fifth grade. We will encourage our boys to continue the fun, adventure and development of Scouting by graduating into a Boy Scout Troop. We hope each of our Scouts will continue to advance in the Scouting program, not because of the badge of rank they will earn but because of what they will learn about themselves, their families, others, God and their country.


     The primary values we seek to instill are contained in the Tiger Cub Promise / Cub Scout Promise, the Tiger Cub Motto / Cub Scout Motto and the Law of the Pack.


     As a worldwide brotherhood, scouting is a unique organization. It is based on the principles of loving and serving God, the dignity of all human beings, and the rights of individuals. Scouting does not emphasize winning as an end result, but rather encourages each boy to do and achieve his best. Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are organizations that are dedicated to bringing out the best in people. No member of the scouts can grow into being the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God. Thus, a Cub Scout learns his duty to God, country, others and self.
