Dr. Charles Townes Supernova Class

Calling all Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts!

The Golden Gate Area Council is offering an opportunity for fifteen (15) Webelos or Arrow of Light Scouts to work with a Council Supernova mentor to earn the Dr. Charles Townes Supernova Medal. 

Pack 1776 had 14 scouts earn their Dr. Charles Townes Supernova Medal this past year. Come join the elite group of Webelos STEM scientists.

Starting on Wednesday, June 9th at 6 PM, the Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts will begin a 9-week journey to earning the Dr. Charles Townes Supernova Medal, the top STEM award for Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts.

Each week the Scouts will have a small project to work on that will broaden and deepen their understanding of STEM.  The required adventures must be completed outside of the sessions. The event runs for nine (9) weeks on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 to 6:45 PM.  The cost of the program is $50 per Scout.  (Please note, this is not a Den Event.)  The event is only open to incoming Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts.

This activity is entirely online with the possible exception of a final Science Fair on Saturday, August 7th (morning). Parents must attend the first online meeting as a part of orientation.

Celebrating our 20th year in October 2020, Pack 1776 didn't slow down due to COVID. We quickly shifted to virtual meetings when Shelter in Place rules prevented us from meeting in person and conducted socially distanced outdoor events such as our Rocket Day!, Halloween Trunk or Treat and hikes. We also hosted the 20th running of Cub Scouting's famous Pinewood Derby. Now, with the pandemic situation improving in the Bay Area and guided by County and Boy Scout of America guidelines, we are doing more outdoor socially distanced events and looking forward to what our new Scouting year has in store for us.

Don't miss out on the fun. By joining before June 6th, you can take advantage of our registration discount and be able to participate in Summer time fun such as the Raingutter Regatta (June 6th), Meridian Cub Scout Day Camp (July 26th - 30th at Little Hills Ranch) and monthly hikes.

Family Scouting: Girls Welcome!

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 fiver 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 $200 and waived the volunteer deposit.
