Pack 777 Bridging

From Cub Scouts to Scout BSA and maybe someday Eagle Scouts. Seven Cubs started together in Pack 777 Diamond Bar and just had their bridging on Monday to join Troop 777 together! Do you have a group of Scouts that started together and are continuing on the Scouting journey together?

The 83rd Successful South Bay Regional Law Enforcement

 Explorer Academy

On May 6th we welcomed our Class #83 graduate Explorers with open arms into our Police Explorer posts: Post 867 Hawthorne PD, Post 142 Gardena PD, Post 1047 Torrance PD, and Post 1969 South Gate PD. Congratulations to the graduates, their families, and their posts. We wish them all the best on the next step in their long journeys ahead. May they flourish in their new homes, and we can't wait to see what they accomplish. These youth are our future. If you're interested in being a Police Explorer for any of our law enforcement posts, please reach out to Exploring Associate Breanna Espinoza.

Pack 8888 Human Caterpillar

Pack 8888 learned how to work as a team and communicate effectively through the Human Caterpillar game. Webelos and Bears were able to learn how to work together as a team, how to effectively communicate with each other, and how to assess the challenges of their supply materials. As well as to be able to critically analyze and make decisions, such as the placement of the Scouts. Younger Cubs, the Wolves, and Tigers learned how to work together, good sportsmanship even if they lose, and perseverance, so they can learn to get back up even when they fall. They were not expected to win the race, but it was important for them to continue and finish the race even when their paper caterpillar was very ripped up.

What a great activity for any Pack!
