Welcome! Join Pack 227!

Pack 227 is chartered by St. Bonaventure Church located in Huntington Beach, CA. We have spring and fall recruitment events, but new scouts may join at any time (hint — get in on all the summer fun!). Many of the Scouts come from St. Bonaventure School, but not all.  We encourage any boy or girl who wants to have a fun time to join our pack wherever you are from, and adult leaders, too!  To join, use the new online application to sign up, or youth and adult applications are also available in the St. Bonaventure School office, in the Cub Scout folder.  Additionally, dues may be paid online via Paypal at this page. For more information, please call our Recruitment Chair, Dani DeGrood (714-653-0002) or email her at recruitment@pack227.org. Continue reading
