Earn the Protect Yourself Rules Adventure & Connect with your Scout

Posted on Mar 21 2020 - 10:27pm

Earn the Protect Yourself Rules Adventure

We are unable to meet as a pack this month, but you can still help your Scout earn a new adventure.  The Protect Yourself Rules Adventure is an adventure that is required for all Scouts to earn their rank. It's a substitute for the Cyber Chip rank requirement that some scouts earned in prior years.  Visit the Protect Yourself Rules Adventures website to find the requirements for your Scout. We encourage you to complete this requirement to help your Scout earn rank!  We will award the adventure belt loop or pin at the next pack meeting.

Record Your Scout's Activities in Scoutbook

Scoutbook is the new web app designed to track your Scout's advancement, milestone achievement, and more!  Using Scoutbook, parents and pack leaders can track and mark off achievements. This app will even carry forward to Boy Scouts.  To make this easy, we have already created an account for you.  Saturday night (3/14), you should have received an email invitation to connect with your Scout on Scoutbook. The email invitation has your login and temporary password.  Sign in so you can see your Scout's achievements so far and to add their Protect Yourself Rules Adventure completion when you are done!  Check out this information on what makes Scoutbook great

 

Pack Hike at Bommer Canyon

Posted on Mar 7 2020 - 8:32pm

It's time for the Pack Hike!

Sunday, March 8 at 1:30pm

Wear your pack t-shirt

Join the pack at Bommer Canyon, a beautiful open-space preserve in Irvine that features some epic scenery and views.  There are several different hiking trails, all about medium-level difficulty (lots of varying topography!), so prepare to break a little sweat while exploring and discovering places right here in South OC that you may not have realized even existed! 
 
Just a bit of trivia, but if you've ever been on the ride "Soarin' over CA" at Disney California Adventure, much of the breathtaking landscape scenery was filmed at this very canyon!
 
  • Meet at 1:30pm at the Bommer Canyon trailhead, whose official address is 1 Bommer Canyon Road.
  • Parking is limited. Please try to carpool.  Additional and ample parking about 1/2 mile down the street (Shady Canyon Drive) at Turtle Rock Community Park. 
  • Dress appropriately and bring lots of water, sunblock, and a hat. 
  • The total time for the hike should last about 2 hours, depending on the speed of the group

 

Adventure Card Sales Have Started

Posted on Mar 7 2020 - 8:32pm

The Annual Adventure Card sale is more than just a fundraiser, it is admission to Scout-O-Rama, the biggest display of Scouting in Orange County as well as giving Scouts the opportunity to earn their way to Camp! 

The Pack is requesting each Scout to sell a minimum of 5 cards. Buy one card for your family, which is the entrance to Scout-O-Rama on May 9th. The other 4 are fairly easy to sell at grocery stores. Proceeds from any card sales over 5 cards will be applied by the Pack directly towards your Scout's Summer Day Camp fees.

 

Please sign up ASAP...there are several competing Packs in our area.  This is the first weekend to sell, so let's get out there before the market is saturated! Sign up for storefront shifts here
 
 
Please contact Neha at 949-331-2958 for your cards and more information available here.  

Cards sold and paid for before April 13 earn extra commission! 

The sale ends May 14th.

Are you good at organizing?  We need your help!

2020 Adventure Card sales begin March 3 and end May 14. Neha Aurora has been our coordinator for the past coupe years, but she needs some help!  We need a volunteer to help her coordinate the adventure card distribution and sales booths.

Please talk to your Den leader about volunteering!
