And we congratulate our Pack 176 District Special Service award winner: Cubmaster Andrew LeRoy!!
Thanks for all your time and enthusiasm this year!  


Cubmaster Corner:

    What a GREAT Pack camping trip at Coyote Hills we had this month.  Fun fun fun!  Thanks to Helen, Arnold, Kunthear, Roger, and Frank for making that happen for the Pack!  Camping is an important part of Scouting so it's always great when the Pack can get out under the stars, light a campfire, and spend some more relaxing time together.
    We have some great activities coming up to look forward to: Webelos Woods, the Tiger Rank ceremony at the Pack meeting, our final Trail Trekker, and the 4th of July Parade. Be sure to check our Pack website regularly for details.
    Summer camp registration is in full swing! Don't miss out! Day camp at Birch Grove in Newark, Adventure camps and Tiger Cub Safari.  Check the calendar and register.  These events usually want some form of parental involvement.  What a great way to teach Cubs outdoor skills and team building! Let's keep on scouting this summer!

Pack's Family Camping Trip

This is an awesome annual Pack event when we camp at a local Regional Park.  This year we will camp at Dairy Glen campsite in Coyote Hills.  The scouts will have a chance to earn their kickball and hiking belt loops and participate in an evening campfire.  This is a family event for scouts, parents, and chipmunks! Don't miss the fun!  For more information contact Helen at noahdoeybruciesmom@yahoo.com 


May Pack Meeting 

Tuesday, May 26, 7pm @ CPC 

Rank Advancements: Tiger

Our monthly pack meetings bring together boys from every den, their leaders, and their families, to participate in a large-scale event that serves a showcase for highlights of what the boys have learned and done in their individual den meetings over the previous month.  The pack meeting gives the boys a larger experience beyond their own den, and helps them to connect their individual activities to the entire Cub Scouting program. Pack meetings, along with the monthly Den meetings, are mandatory meetings for all registered scouts.  Questions?  Contact our Cubmaster at cubmaster@pack176.com 


Webelos Woods

May 30-31 @ Rancho Los Mochos 

Boy Scout Troops 132 and 103 are hosting this annual event.  The campout is open to Bears and Webelos and will qualify for thier Arrow of Light boy scout outdoor activity requirement.  It's a day of events, dinner, a campfire program, overnight camping, breakfast and a patch for participating.  Always a terrific experience for the boys!
