Pack 1776 invites you to build your own rocket, launch it and have a blast!  Learn about Cub Scouting and all the fun things we do.

You can now sign up online for Cub Scouting and invite friends to join too!  

All scouts must:

1.    Complete the online Pack 1776 Registration Form

2.    Complete the Medical Form Parts A & B

3.    Make a copy of the front & back of your scout’s medical insurance card.

4)    Registration check written to Pack 1776. Write your Scout's name in the memo line. 

  • $280 for Tiger, Wolf, Bear or Webelos scouts (First through Fifth grades in 2022-2023). Prices are even lower if you sign up to volunteer as a leader or chairperson. We only accept Fifth graders if they have completed and earned the Webelos I rank.
  • $200 per new Lion scouts (those who will be in Kindergarten in 2022-2023).
    • NOTE NEW SCOUTS:   There was a recent change to the BSA website that requires new scouts to pay the national fees up front.  Previously the pack paid this on behalf of the new scout from the pack registration fee.  Given this change, we can no longer do this. As such, pay the national fees online using your credit card and then deduct that amount from the $280 (or if a new Lion, $200) pack registration fee when preparing your check.

5)    A separate $200 volunteer deposit check per family, post-dated to 4/1/2023.  Write your Scout's name in the memo line. We will hold onto your check and shred it after you have completed 10 service hours. 

Mail or Drop off your completed paperwork to the Scout Box inside the Coyote Creek School Office.

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 five 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.

Pack 1776's annual membership fee includes the cost to register with the Boys Scouts of America, the Council Program Fee, a one year subscription to Scout's Life magazine, a Pack 1776 Class B uniform t-shirt, award belt loops, pins and patches and expenses in events like Halloween Party, Pinewood Derby, campouts, etc.

Date: Saturday, May 27, 2017
Time: 8:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (will start promptly at 9:00 a.m.)
Location: San Francisco National Cemetery, 1 Lincoln Blvd, SF, CA
Attire: Full Class A, footwear suitable for walking on wet grass
Event Leader: Andy Szeto 
RSVP: Evite

Once again, the Memorial Weekend Flag Planting event will be held at the San Francisco National Cemetery in the Presidio.  Every year, scouts from across the Bay Area meet to help prepare the cemetery for the Memorial Day weekend.  The ceremony starts with a flag ceremony and then an address by a veteran.
The scouts then spread out across the cemetery and place American flags in front of every grave site.

The cemetery contains the graves of more than 35,000 veterans and their family members, dating back to the 1846 war with Mexico.

It's a worthwhile event that reminds our Scouts of the sacrifice many have made to make our country what it is today.

All leaders and scouts should be in full uniform.

The ceremony will begin promptly at 9:00am.

Contact Andy Szeto at aszeto@gmail.com if you have questions.

Webelos Weekend Camp 2017

@ CAMP WOLFEBORO

2017 Webelos Weekend July 14-16

Webelos Weekend is an introduction into Boy Scout resident camping. Both weekends are held at Camp Wolfeboro, the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council Boy Scout Camp located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is an opportunity to give your Webelos a chance to see what Boy Scout summer camp is like. The Scouts and their parents (no siblings) show up at 6:00pm Friday night at the top of the hill where they meet the camp truck to load your gear to take down to camp. Estimate a travel time between 3-4 hours from the Bay Area. The road into camp is DEFINITELY A 4X4 ROAD and should not be attempted by family vehicles. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU JOIN OUR STAFF MEMBERS ON A HIKE THROUGH THE FOREST TO GET TO CAMP. BRING A WATER BOTTLE AND GOOD WALKING SHOES OR BOOTS. Meals will start on Saturday with breakfast and end with breakfast on Sunday. Families are encouraged to eat dinner on the way up to camp Friday night.

 

Friday night, after the Wolfeboro staff show you to your assigned campsite, the Webelos are invited to come and join the Boy Scout campfire for a night of songs, skits and brotherhood. Saturday will be kicked off with morning flags followed by breakfast. After that the Scouts will have the opportunity to go to all of the camp program areas and participate in activities. Camp Wolfeboro runs on an open schedule, which means that your Scouts are welcome to go to any area during program time and participate. All of the Scouts are welcome to stay in any program area as long as they like; however we do recommended that they try and visit every area so they can get an idea of all Camp Wolfeboro has to offer.

 

The program areas that will be open are Scout Craft (Scout Skills), the Nature Lodge, Handicraft, Archery, BB Guns, Swimming, Row Boating, Canoeing and let's not forget the evening CAMPFIRES!

 

Saturday will be wrapped up with a campfire devoted solely to the Webelos. Have your Scouts bring up ideas for skits and songs. We would love to have them perform in our campfire, but remember they must be Scouting appropriate!

 

After breakfast on Sunday the Webelos will be given an opportunity to pack up their gear and load it on the camp truck. Check out time will be 10:00am Sunday morning followed with a brisk walk through a pine forest. a great place for you to tell a story and let your users know a little more about you.

 

This event brought to you in part by YOUR Friends of Scouting contributions. Thank you!
