Happy Summer!

Bridging 2017 has come and gone, but wow! What a great group of bridging girls—more than 200 and many 8th graders! Thanks to everyone who participated. Every troop did something to make this an amazing display of Scripps Ranch Girl Scout spirit!

Re-registration and filing deadlines may have passed, but procrastinators, please don’t give up. Be sure to re-register your girls and adults today. If you need help, email us. We are ready and willing to help you get it done. If your troop is disbanding, please let us know so we can update our database.

Look for our girl scouts in the 4th of July Parade! Bring your decorated bikes, wagons, or whatever and show your patriotic spirit as we celebrate our wonderful country. Also, if you attend the popular Symphony in the Park concerts in Hoyt Park, our store, Collins Family Jewelers, is sponsoring the event on Sunday, July 16. We’ll be there!

You’ll lead an experienced team who recruits the troop cookie managers, trains them, and coordinates activities such as picking up the cookies from the warehouse, managing the sale, and helping distribute the girls’ prizes at the end of the season.

Celebrating A Great Milestone Bridging Over Coronado Pack 614 Advances

May and June were busy for Pack 614. There were many events, including an important one on Memorial Day weekend. The boys placed flags at the headstones of veterans at El Camino Memorial Park to honor those who served our country.

In June Webelos Scouts from Pack 614 were invited to act as the Color Guard at a Court of Honor for a Troop 301 boy scout—and former Pack 614 cub scout—advancing to the rank of Eagle.

Also in June all cub scouts advanced to the next rank along their path to becoming boy scouts. In addition, the pack awarded Den Chief Service Awards to two local boy scouts who assist the pack and mentor the boys. The adult volunteers who make the pack run were recognized as well.

Pack 614 is in the midst of its summer activity schedule, which starts with participation in the Scripps Ranch 4th of July Parade. If you have a son entering kindergarten through 5th grade and want more information about our active Cub Scout pack, visit www.pack614.com.

Pack 615 Visits Indian Hills

June is one of Pack 615’s favorite months because it means another visit to Indian Hills! This camp in Jamul offers zip-lines, a BMX track, swimming pools, and the coolest pirate-themed playground around. In addition, we held our Bridging Ceremony there. Congratulations to all our scouts on advancing rank!

We look forward to the Scripps Ranch 4th of July Parade. We will hold our second Annual Raingutter Regatta in August.

If you have a boy at E.B. Scripps Elementary interested in joining Cub Scouts, please contact our cubmaster Josh Vosovic at [email protected]

Pack 616 Represents At Memorial Day Ceremonies

Pack 616 scouts participated in two ceremonies honoring fallen heroes on Memorial Day weekend. At Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery scouts placed American flags at the gravesites of fallen servicemen and women as a way to honor them and their ultimate sacrifice.

Across the harbor Pack 616 scouts attended the Wreath Laying Ceremony aboard the U.S.S. Midway. Four cub scouts were partnered with an active military member and a war veteran to assist in releasing a wreath from the Midway’s flight deck in memory of Americans who sacrificed their lives in past wars.

Are you a boy in grades 1–5 who likes fun, adventure, and activities? Pack 616 wants you! Please reach us through http://pack616.com/contact.

Pack 1216 Stays Busy

The end of the school year had Pack 1216 busy with many activities. The boys lifted off some rockets, and each den was “lifted” to its new rank at our year end meeting at Lakeview Park. Pack members also participated in a Memorial Day ceremony at Miramar National Cemetery (above). The boys laid flowers at gravesites to honor our military.

Also, cub scouts went on a guided nature hike at Torrey Pines. If this wasn’t enough, the pack celebrated the end of the school year with a camping trip to Indian Hills where boys participated in archery, zip-lining, and more!
