Major Events

Pack 850 has several major events each year that are special as compared to our typical pack meetings. 

Scout O Rama. Saturday, May 9. Oak Canyon Park in Silverado. The Scout O Rama is an event put on by the Orange County Council of the BSA. Every Pack and Troop sets up a booth with a special activity. It is truly a carnival of scouting! It is not just for scouts! Friends and siblings can join the fun too with activities including shooting, riding, cooking, eating, boating, building, coloring and more. Pack 850 will have a booth too! In years past we’ve had kid-powered electricity and target shooting.  

Pack Picnic and Bridging Ceremony. Saturday, June 6 This is a potluck picnic where the scouts will be bridging up to their next rank! It’s a lot of fun and a great photo opportunity.

Community Service

Pack 850 is involved in our community! We need a community service chair. Typically the role of this parent is to communicate with the various organizations that we work with for outreach programs. Here are the programs we plan to help with this year. 

Saturday, April 25: Arbor Day Beach Cleanup and BBQ at Huntington Beach. More info coming soon!

Camping

Pack 850 loves to Camp! Pack 850 brings the food and cooking gear. You need to bring your sleeping bag, tent and hiking supplies! Specific details will be made available at the pack meeting. Bring your credit card to reserve your spot! 

May 16th 2020 – Lake Elsinore. More info coming soon

Adult Volunteering

Whereas the Boy Scouts is led by the scouts themselves, the Cub Scouts are led by you! Our job is to teach our boys and girls as many skills as we can to prepare them for the next step in their scouting adventure. The best way to do this is to: Be Informed, Be Involved and Be Prepared! 

Planning Meeting

The simplest way to be involved is to attend the monthly pack planning meetings. These are held at 7pm on the first Thursday of the month. Here we set our plans for our activities for the next month. This is a good way to be “in the know” and to share good ideas that you may have. 

Youth Protection Training

We are requiring ALL parents to register with the BSA and take the Youth Protection Training. This is a quick 90 minute training that informs you of the rules of the BSA so we can KEEP OUR BOYS AND GIRLS SAFE. No excuses not to do this, you can even take it on your phone!
