Girl Cub Scouts - Family Scouting

BSA Launches New Family Scouting Program

I’m sure you’ve seen sisters tag along at Cub Scout meetings and events. You’ve watched them experience the fun of Scouting without earning any of the awards and recognition afforded their brothers.

And I bet you’ve heard from the busy moms and dads in your pack or troop who crave more time to interact with their kids.  A Scouting program for the whole family will help them maximize that time.  Now, they’ll get one great Scouting experience in one place.

For those of you who are not yet involved in Scouting, the BSA has recently announced a new program for girls, that allows them to become Cub Scouts, and participate right alongside their brothers, earning the same badges, and having the same experiences as them, as full members of the BSA.

Learn more about girls in Scouting at the Scout-O-Rama on April 14, 2018.  Get your tickets here.

 

New CSP Launch at Scout-O-Rama!


The Pacific Harbors Council Shoulder Patch (CSP) is being retired, and a completely new design is being launched at Scout-O-Rama!

"First Edition" versions of this new CSP will be available exclusively at Scout-O-Rama, so don't wait to be one of the few lucky ones, this First Edition patch won't be available at the Scout Shop or in stores.

Sign Up Now to get your admission to SOR and be eligible to buy a new PHC CSP.
