Overview:
Las Trampas (Spanish for the traps) has two distinct areas, each with its own personality. Rocky Ridge, on the west side of the valley, is known for views in all directions, unusual rocks and green rolling hills lightly forested with California bays, oaks and maples. The wildflower display on the hills just off the ridgeline is an east bay favorite. The Las Trampas Ridge, to the east, is quite different, featuring a plant community dominated by chamise with other chaparral plants such as manzanitas and coyote brush.

Family Scouting: Girls Welcome!

We are excited to announce that our Pack is open to boys and girls. By welcoming girls into the program, even more youth will have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Scouting promises.

Lions: Kindergarten Age Youth Come Try it Out!

We are celebrating two years of participation in the national Lion program!  As a Lion, your kindergartner will make friends, laugh loud, gain confidence, discover nature, and most of all…have fun.  A kindergarten-age boy or girl and his or her adult partner join and attend meetings and activities together.  Recognizing how Lions are integral to the success of our program and to introduce them to the world of Cub Scouting, the Pack has discounted the normal registration fee to $75.00 and waived the volunteer deposit.
