Scout Hot Wheels Racing Booth at the San Carlos Horse Power Car Show! (9/11)

Tom has kindly signed up the Pack to run our Hot Wheels Track at the San Carlos Horspower Car Show and Street Fair on 9/11. It's usually a lot of fun for the scouts and the kids passing by, helps us to raise funds and recruit new scouts.

Youth Protection Training

Posted on Aug 27 2021 - 8:03am

To keep scouting safe, the BSA has mandatory youth protection training for leaders and adult volunteers. Every activity (including every Den Meeting) must have at least two youth protection trained adults, and the more adults we have who are in attendance and trained, the safer we can keep the pack and its program. If you haven't taken youth protection training yet (it's ~45min and entirely online) please do so, or if its been more than two years since your last training, please take a new class.
