June's Cubmaster Corner:
This is my final Cubmaster Corner for Pack 176. It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve as the Cubmaster for Pack 176 these past couple years. Our Pack embodies so many of Cub Scouting's Core Values and I have greatly enjoyed working with such a spirited group of scouts and committed, positive group of Akelas.
Now more then ever, I am convinced that Cub scouting and Pack 176 offer fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Service projects, ceremonies, games, and other activities guide boys through the core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Through positive peer interaction and parental guidance, boys learn honesty, bravery, and respect. In Pack 176, we put a strong emphasis on family participation. It is these principles that build strong leaders and allow the boys to grow up to be good men and even better fathers to their sons and daughters.
I am so pleased to welcome my successor, Andrew LeRoy, as the Pack's new Cubmaster starting in September. I am confidant that Mr LeRoy will continue the wonderful half century tradition of adventure, fun and growth that so defines Pack 176 and is reflected in the Pack once again earning the Gold Standard for the BSA Journey to Excellence. Our Akelas and our scouts understand that scouting is more than a couple hours a month.
My heartfelt thanks to all our scouts, Akelas, den leaders, the committee and everyone who has worked so diligently to make the last couple years the great experience it has been. It's been a great adventure and I wish you all the greatest success in your scouting journey!

CAMPS CAMPS CAMPS
The Boy Scouts of America offer many wonderful camps for scouts throughout the summer months. Both overnight and day camps are available. As a Pack we strongly encourage our scouts to attend these camps where the boys have an opportunity to grow in leadership, maturity, and earn patches, advancements, and pride in their accomplishments!
