On Thursday, Sept. 21st 4:00 – 8:00 pm, we will be having a fundraiser for our Pack charity this year: the Joyful Child Foundation – in Memory of Samantha Runnion. It is dedicated to preventing crimes against children through programs that educate, empower and unite families and communities.
The fundraiser will be held at the Chipotle Mexican Grill (16241 Beach Blvd. Huntington Beach). All you need to do is print or show this flyer. Chipotle will then donate 50% of the proceeds to Joyful Child. Please forward this e-mail and mention it to neighbors, friends and family so that we can raise as much money as possible!
Webelos leaders and parents should know that there is a program for 4th graders (home schooled or public) to get into national parks for free for one year. Parents can sign up at this link.
Pacifica Day Camp will be held from July 12-14 at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley. Continue reading

We have scheduled a one hour Parent Information Meeting for Saturday, Feb. 18th at 3:00 pm at the St. Bonaventure Parish Hall. We hope that you can attend.

- Be Brave- Be Safe
- Be Ready by planning ahead
- Be Aware of your surroundings
- Be Victorious and stand up for yourself
- Be Empowered to stop violence
The goal of the BRAVE Programs is to develop each child’s ability to reduce the risk of victimization by providing knowledge and skills about safety. Rest assured that the workshops are fun, educational and age appropriate. As an added bonus, your Scout’s participation in the “BRAVE” workshops will fulfill various requirements depending on his rank! Continue reading
