Pack 185 Newsletter
Scouting has been an integral part of American culture since 1910. By integrating lifetime values into fun and educational activities, scouting helps parents teach their sons how to make good decisions throughout their lives, and give them the confidence to succeed as they become the adult leaders of tomorrow.
Cub Scout Pack 185 in Stratham has been around for generations. We are a member of the Boy Scouts of America, in New Hampshire's Daniel Webster Council as part of the Historic District. Our chartering organization is the Stratham Volunteer Fire Department.
We hope that parents, leaders and scouts will find the resources at this website helpful. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact the Pack 185 Communications Committee
The uniform consists of a blue Cub Scout shirt (green for Webelos), a neckerchief and slide, a blue Cub Scout belt, and blue pants. The pack provides the neckerchief and slide. You may purchase the shirt and belt at the scout store in Manchester NH (Manchester Scout Shop, 300 Blondin Road, Manchester, NH 03109, phone 603-622-5060).

The pants do not need to be “scout pants” – they can be any blue pants with belt loops (no jeans please), so they don’t need to be purchased at the scout store.
Another option is Fuller's in Amesbury. The back of the clothing shop is dedicated to Scouts. They are very helpful there, have most uniform sizes and patches. They will sew all patches for you, for a small fee. Here is a link to their business: W E Fuller. Kittery Trading Post carries a limited selection of scout gear as well.
You will need to purchase a few patches for the shirt. You can purchase these patches from the pack awards chair (Kim Lehmann) or at the scout store.
- 185 numerals (one piece patch sold by pack only)
- Daniel Webster Council Shoulder Patch
- World Crest (round purple patch with fleur de lis)
- Den # patch (see your den leader for info on your den #)
Cost of the 185 numerals, shoulder patch and World Crest from the pack is a little over $12.
