Welcome to Scouting and Pack 1203

April 14th, 2010



Soapbox races, building Pinewood Derby cars, camping, ocean kayaking, BB gun shooting, snowball fights, helping the community, hiking, archery, conservation projects, leatherwork, rocketry, Coast Guard and Tall Ship visits … whew!



Welcome to the Scouting Experience!
A family-oriented Pack in San Pedro, California, serving the families of Taper Avenue, Park Western Place, Christ Lutheran, Mary Star of the Sea, and Crestwood Elementaries, as well as the rest of San Pedro.

As a fairly young Pack, our growth & success is driven by the dedicated volunteers who strive to make this Scouting experience a rewarding one for the boys.

In Scouting, the boys have the opportunity to ease into their first positions of responsibility.  Learning to be good leaders, while at the same time, learning to be good followers.  Cub Scouting prepares the boys for the Boy Scout experience where they conduct their own meetings, lead their own outings and events and step into ever-higher positions of leadership.

*Article from Scouting Magazine:


The one thing you should include in every public piece of Scouting communication

Posted in Scouting Magazine on December 22, 2015



Every positive story about your pack, troop, team, post, ship or crew is an opportunity.

It’s a chance to tell your community that Scouts live, serve and play here.

But to hear unit commissioner Dave Mountney tell it, too many units are missing their shot to turn that positive story into a recruiting message.

That’s why the Washington Crossing Council volunteer wants every unit to include a link to BeAScout.org in every piece of unit communication that might be seen by the public.

“Units are encouraged to get their story in the news — either in print or digital form,” he writes. “Some units are good about it, but even most that do miss an opportunity that may serve even one more family.”

Sure, he sees email addresses, phone numbers and unit website info on stories and fliers. That’s great, but what happens when that message goes beyond the unit’s geographic area? In the age of Facebook, that’s bound to happen.

“If the story is good, a parent, uncle, grandparent or even a youth may want to look into Scouting,” Mountney writes. But that person may “live too far from the unit they just read about.”

That’s where BeAScout.org comes in. With just their ZIP code, parents can use that site to locate and contact packs, troops and crews near them.

Add this URL to news articles about Eagle Scout projects, fliers about money-earning projects, tickets to unit breakfasts and even Scouting for Food handouts. Basically, include BeAScout.org on anything a member of the public might see.

Let’s use the power of BeAScout.org to spread Scouting, one new Scout at a time.
