Cub Scouting in the Community

Cub Scouts from San Marino Packs 354 and Pack 361 joined forces to host their annual Lacy Park Campout on May 4-5, 2024. Inspired by the legendary music festival, this year's event dubbed "Cubchella" saw over 350 Cub Scouts and their families enjoy a weekend filled with games, activities, crafts, and music. San Marino-based BSA Troops 351, 355, 358, and 359 hosted various activity stations for Cubs, including a sea turtle lab, geocache course, plank walk race, camping demonstration, and t-shirt tie-dying. Families enjoyed dinner from The Habit food truck while local folk-rock band, Sam Slick (the drummer is a dad from Pack 354), provided a fitting soundtrack for the festivities. After dark, each Pack hosted a campfire program complete with skits, songs, s'mores, and hot cocoa. 

While a larger-than-expected rain shower passed through on Saturday night, it did not dampen any spirits as Cubs and their families woke up to fresh donuts, hot coffee, an inspiring interfaith service, and clear sunny skies on Sunday morning as they broke down their tents and packed up their gear.

Among them were Vincent V., Andrew B., and Mario P. Additionally, 24 Scouts were recognized with the Pope Pius XII Emblem, including Matthew H. and Dylan W.
