Theme: Bug Hunter
May 17-19, Camp Tamarancho
What is Family Fiesta? Family Fiesta is a family camping experience for Cub Scouts, Webelos, invited friends, and their families. This camp will introduce the Cub Scouts and their family to some of the activities that can be experienced in our summer day camp programs. Just like at camp, events and activities are run by older Scout troops and Venturing crews. The Cub Scouts will get an opportunity to meet summer day camp staff and older Scouts, and as a bonus, they get an idea of all the fun and exciting things that await them when they become Scouts or Venturers.
The theme and activities around "Bug Hunter" will provide an opportunity for Scouts, siblings, and parents to learn and practice Scout skills, crafts, and values. Marin Council troops and crews will lead campers in events ranging from field sports, climbing, nature hikes, shooting sports, and safety exploration. The day will close with a campfire program. The cost is $15 per person age 5 and older. This price does not include food, which varies by meal. Meal ticket sign-up deadline is May 10.

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.
The pack hiked into the Shady Bend campsite at Camp Tamarancho and setup camp. From here we took a hike along the B-17 trail and witnessed the old B-17 plane engine that was left behind from the crash in 1946. Our Webelos helped prepare meals and cooked up a delicious cobbler for dessert. We all earned a Pack Camp patch for participating in the event.
