Pack 7 spent the night on the SS Jeremiah O’Brien Liberty Ship that resides in San Francisco. Our scouts toured the main deck, the living quarters, and the engine room. They were treated to pizza and a fun game that taught them all about the ship’s unique role in WWII
Our annual Pack 7 Pinewood Derby was a smashing success! Our scouts worked hard designing, building, and painting their cars for the big race. Colin McLain's car, “It’s not going to win” ended up taking home the first place trophy. Great job to all of our Cub Scouts!
We want to send a huge thank you out to all of our families who attended our Blue and Gold Banquet. We hope everyone had a great time!
Check out our Instagram for some great photos of the evening! To top off a fun evening, the Boy Scouts of America took notice of our banquet and posted about it on their Instagram! Thousands of people across the country and around the world got to see the Storm Troopers in action at our Blue and Gold banquet!
Pack 7 scouts were invited to take a tour of the Fairfax Police Department and learn all about safety and forensics. We explored the 911 dispatch station, checked out a police car, and learned how to dust for fingerprints. Corporal Judge, Officer Kenerly and Dispatcher Crow showed us the inner workings of the police department. Each scout that participated received a sticker!
Our visit got a write up in the San Anselmo-Fairfax Patch
Our Bear Den organized a tour of the Bear Valley Visitor Center and a day hike at Point Reyes National Seashore. Our scouts learned about local plants and animals and then viewed them in the wild on the Earthquake and Kule Loklo Trails. It was a really fun day!
We celebrated the 78th birthday of Pack 7 at the Canon Club in Fairfax. We gave back by doing a community service project to help clean up trash, leaves, and overgrown brush in the area. Once complete, the pack celebrated with an annual pool party and birthday cake. It was a fun afternoon.
