Meridian Cub Scout Day Camp – July 26-30 (save the date!)

Howdy!  Save the date for Meridian Cub Scout Day Camp!

Join us for our incredible “Down on the Farm Day Camp, taking place July 26th through July 30th at Little Hills Ranch, 18013 Bollinger Canyon Rd, San Ramon, CA. 

Registration will open next week.  We will also have regular updates on our website (https://meridian.ggacbsa.org/day-camp/) so check it frequently!

This is an in-person day camp where you’ll discover and learn things down on the farm.  Don’t miss out on an amazing fun filled week where Cub Scouts are expected to be able to play and participate in:

  • Valuable Cub Scout Skills/Crafts
  • Shooting Sports
  • STEM Experiences
  • Wood projects

Camp is open to all Boys and Girls (Cub Scouts) entering the 1st – 5th Grade. If your child is not currently a Scout, he or she can still attend!   

Please note:  The Council places the safety and wellbeing of our scouts, parents, campers, and volunteers at the forefront.  Day Camp will only go forward if it is safe and in compliance with local, state and Boy Scouts of America directives. The ability to proceed with camp depends on having a sufficient number of volunteers to ensure the proper supervision of stable cohorts (groups) of campers as well as a sufficient minimum number of participants.

Yours in Scouting,

Paul Lannus – Day Camp Director, and Rand Mahoney – District Executive

Pinewood Derby, Sunday Feb. 10, 2019

On Sunday morning, February 10, we will hold the annual Pinewood Derby in the John Baldwin MPR.

The Pinewood Derby race is one of Cub Scouts’ signature events.  Boys make cars from approved kits, and race them.  Cars are recognized for being fastest, coolest-looking, funniest, etc.

There will be four racing times, each lasting less than an hour:

  • 9:00 am – Tigers and Wolves
  • 10:00 am – Bears
  • 11:00 am – Webelos
  • 12:00 pm – Open division (brothers, sisters, adults)

Please plan on arriving a half hour early.

The maximum weight of the car is 5 ounces, and you’re not allowed to touch the axles or the wheels.  Remember that the emphasis should be on the scout’s efforts in making the car.

Please email your den leader or Mr. McClure to let us know that you or your scout are participating.  Makes it much easier on the day of the race.

Scouts may wear either their Class A or Class B uniform – their choice.

See you there!
