John Kuhn is now Pack 575’s Cubmaster! A previous cub scout himself, he has graciously agreed to head our pack. Thank you for volunteering your time to guide the scouts. And a big thank you to Brian Hoffman, who stepped down as Cubmaster after years of service. You will be missed.
Congratulations to all the boys who sold their little hearts out. What an amazing popcorn season we had!
Amongst our pack, we had the number one top seller in the district! Here is a picture of him driving the Zamboni at the LA Kings hockey game. The scouts who sold over $1,250, earned tickets to the game.
Are You Motivated????
We have a great program for boys in Kindergarten through Fifth Grades. Most of our members attend James Foster Elementary School, Plum Elementary School, Mountain View Elementary School and Emblem Elementary School but we welcome other boys in the area who are interested in joining Cub Scouting.
Cub Scouting is fun! No matter what grade you are in, first through fifth, it can be a blast. Do you like to learn by doing? This is just the place. You can learn to tie knots, set up a tent, shoot a bow and arrow (archery). Have you ever cooked a meal on a campfire? Sent a secret code to a buddy? Built a birdhouse? Played Ultimate? Hiked? Earn rewards for doing these things in Cub Scouts!
As a Cub Scout, you will be part of your own pack.
The pack is divided into smaller groups called dens. Each den has about six to eight boys. All of the Cub Scouts in your den are in the same grade and may even go to the same school.
Since its origin, the Scouting program has been an educational experience concerned with values. In 1910, the first activities for Scouts were designed to build character, physical fitness, practical skills, and service. These elements were part of the original Cub Scout program and continue to be part of Cub Scouting today.
Character development extends into every aspect of a boy’s life. Character development also extends into every aspect of Cub Scouting. Cub Scout leaders strive to use Cub Scouting’s 12 core values throughout all elements of the program—service projects, ceremonies, games, skits, songs, crafts, and all the other activities enjoyed at den and pack meetings and most of all ensure the boys have fun in the process!
Our Pack consists of Scouts and families, all of who attend our events and outings. Besides Pack and Den Meetings, our Scouts enjoy camping outings, as well as overnight trips at zoos, science centers and battleship parks!
Scouts participate in age appropriate activities from field trips for our younger groups, to hikes and woodworking for our older youth. All our Scouts enjoy a variety of group activities under adult guidance, such as Rocket Rallies, Raingutter Regattas, and the every famous Pinewood Derby! Join us for our next outing!
Pack 575 spreading some Thanksgiving cheer, handing out hygiene packs to the homeless on skid row. A very rewarding but humbling experience.
The Raingutter Regatta is a racing event that is the sailboat equivalent of the Pinewood Derby. Scouts are free to paint and decorate their sailboats as they choose. This years race demonstrated good sportsmanship cheering each other on. Congratulations to all the boys, it was an amazing event. Awards will be handed out in the next few weeks.
Veteran’s Day began quietly with a minute of silence in honor of the service of veterans to their country, with a special acknowledgment by Master of Ceremonies Ted Olsen. Mark Blazer led a prayer asking that we be moved to “noble patriotism” and that vets be protected when “they put themselves in harm’s way.” Veteran speaker was Command Sergeant Major CSM Edward O. Littleton who – drawing from his own 43 years of military service – honored vets of all types. Mayor Bob Kelly also told a story from his childhood that left everyone with a smile on their face.
Pack 575 scouts were honored to be a part of this ceremony.
