Transition to Boy Scouts

Date: Thursday, October 13th, 2016
Time: 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: LDS Church, 5025 Crow Canyon Rd, San Ramon

Arrow of Light parents (no scouts please) should plan to attend the Meridian Roundtable meeting on October 13th. Learn more about the transition to Boy Scouts and meet representatives from Troops in your area.

While joining a particular Troop is generally a Scout's decision, this event will give parents an opportunity to meet briefly with many Troops and narrow down the search on behalf of the Scout. Each Troop has its own personality and areas of extra focus such as: Leadership, Reverence, Outdoor activities, Service to others, etc. and this event will allow parents to find Troops that meet the Scouts interests, family values, and favorable meeting location (i.e., close to home, at my son's future Middle School, or at our Church).

Most families narrow their search to 3 or 4 Troops before they start attending Troop recruiting events.

2016 Cub Scout Day Camp

Welcome to Cloud City! On behalf of our esteemed mayor, Cloud City sends this invite to scouts who wish to join our proud City for its annual Sky Guard Challenge. Only the bravest, most skilled, and crafty of scouts should enter as Sky Riders!

Each day will start with a gathering in the City Square. Riders will head out to join the Flight Shop and learn the secrets of engineering. Jet forward to learn the skill and artistry from the Sky Design Studio. Take a dip into the Rain Tank to cool off, test your skills in the field of archery, or take aim with steam pellet projectors. The Challenge will end with a day of Rider Games; test your skills and strengths and you can become a member of the Sky Guard! Also, beware of the dastardly Flying Pirates who are always looking to stir up trouble.

Start your engines, get your props turning, heat up the dirigibles, and come take a Journey to Cloud City!

Where: Little Hills, 18013 Bollinger Canyon Rd, San Ramon
