About Pack 140

The adventure starts with Cub Scouting, a year-round family program designed for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade, or 5 to 10 years of age.  The program emphasizes shared leadership, learning about the community, family understanding, character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.


Young boys and girls grow up fast.  Give your child a valuable gift by encouraging them to join Cub Scouting today.  The time you invest in them today will make a difference in the person they become tomorrow.


Cub Scout Pack 140 is a part of the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). The BSA is organized into geographic regions, with the Transatlantic Council administering the Boy Scout program to Europe. Adhering to the standards set by the BSA, we operate as a not-for-profit organization relying totally on adult volunteers.   Pack 140 began its charter at The American School of The Hague in 1953 and has been in continuous existence ever since.
