A Little Bit of Cub Scout History

Posted on Jun 25 2022 - 11:33pm

Good morning Pack 3179 Families,

Cub Scouting started in 1918, almost a decade after Scouts BSA formed. Many different iterations of Cub Scouts have taken place over the years. Today, the Cub Scout portion of Scouts BSA is the largest of its three membership divisions. It is a family program for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve what we know as Cub Scouting with families being the core part and included in many activities.  Parent involvement is essential to our Pack, and volunteers are always welcome to help our Scouts to live by the Scout Oath and Scout Law and develop tomorrow's leaders.

Give New Scouts a Taste...

Posted on Jun 18 2022 - 10:59pm

Since the history of Scouting began in 1908 with Lord Baden-Powell, youth have been drawn to the life of the outdoors.  Through hiking, camping, and the outdoors, Scouts BSA (formed in 1910) encourages Scouts to live by the Scout Oath and Scout Law, perform good turns, and be a friend to everyone.  This coming Saturday, Scouts will have a great opportunity to show new potential Scouts what Scouting is all about at the Taste of Scouting event.  This event will be held at the Thousand Oaks Police Station (2101 E Olsen Rd) from 9-11 am.  Come cheer on our Pack's Pinewood Derby winners and share our experience of the great things that Scouts get to do in our Pack.  Please register both on the VCCBSA website and our website to let us know you're going.  Please help promote Pack 3179 and all of the great things that Scouts are doing.

Let's Have a Great Summer!

Thank you to all the families that attended Bridging Camp last weekend. Congratulations to Scouts bridging into their new rank.  This week, Ventura Unified School District breaks for the summer and our pack begins to transition to our summer pack activities.  All Scouts that attend a June, July, and August Pack Activity will earn the Summertime Pack Award pin. Our activities kick off today with our Flag Day Celebration at the Elks.  Scouts need to be in full Class A uniform and arrive at 130 pm for instructions.  Service hours will also be awarded for those attending and helping out at the event. 

Duty to Country

Posted on May 28 2022 - 10:50pm

Good morning Pack 3179 Families,

Please take a moment on this Memorial Day weekend to remember those that paid the ultimate price for our Country's freedom and independence.  Pause and mourn for those families who have lost a loved one serving our Country at home and/or abroad in our armed services. Thank you to the Scouts from our Pack that paid tribute yesterday to those who have fallen by placing flags on the graves of fallen soldiers. While we pay our respects this weekend to those that lost their lives, next weekend, we will show our respect to our Nation's flag in our Flag Retirement Ceremony at Bridging Camp.  We'll conclude our day, Saturday at camp with retiring flags donated from our community.  All are welcome to join us at Bridging Camp which will begin the afternoon of Friday, June 3rd and continues through the morning of Sunday, June 5th.  You can join us for its entirety, join us for Saturday and camp one night (Friday night or Saturday night), or come just for the day on Saturday. We look forward to seeing all our Scout in full uniform for their bridging ceremony.  Please register on the website and state if you'll be joining for all of it, staying one night, or just coming for the day on Saturday.

Raingutter Regatta and other items...

Posted on May 25 2022 - 9:12pm

Good morning Pack 3179 Families,

As we wrap up another Scouting year, thank you to all the leaders and volunteers that have stepped forward to help make Scouting possible. Your hard work and efforts are noted and appreciated.  Unless priorly arranged with your Den leader, all Scouting activities must be completed and documented by today in order for your Scout to have items purchased to bridge at Bridging Camp. Adventures and advancements may still be accomplished after today and your Scout can still earn his/her rank, but it is with the understanding that your Scout may not have a hat, neckerchief, and slide at Bridging Camp. All adventures and advancements are due no later than Thursday, June 30th.  The only exception is the elective adventures for Webelos Scouts which can be accomplished over a two-year period from when they earn their Webelos Rank.
