Cub continues in Imperial Beach!

Cub Scouting is still alive and well in Imperial Beach.  When the COVID 19 pandemic struck, Scouting as we know it changed.  Although Cub Scout Pack 866 might not be hiking or camping these days, they are still meeting virtually.  Since we couldn’t be experiencing the “outing” in Scouting, the Pack has been working hard at the academic side.  During a virtual awards ceremony, the Pack awarded 54 Adventure completion certificates and recognized 5 Scouts for completing the advancement requirements for their current rank.  In addition, we had two Scouts complete Math STEM Nova awards.

In a normal year, the new school year is a time to welcome new members that were invited at Back to School Nights or at Scout talks at school assemblies.  Unfortunately, that recruiting method is not available this year. 

This year Pack 866 has scheduled a virtual sign-up night for September 15 at 6:00.  We are looking for both boys and girls in grades Kindergarten thru 5th grade.  We will be playing some games on Zoom, sharing experiences we have had on Scout outings, and answering questions about how our Pack is organized.  For more information, please email mbrandt10@cox.net.
