September Meetings


We are ready to kick off a great year of scouting with our September den and pack meetings!  Remember, Scouts wear their full Class A uniforms to den and pack meetings.  If you are a new scout and don't have a uniform yet, that's no problem!  But please make plans to get a uniform and handbook as soon as you can.

On Thursday, 9/8/16 we will hold our first den meetings of the year at St. Max in O'Reilly Hall from 7-8 pm.  Catch up with old friends and welcome new scouts!  We'll help our newest members prepare for the Bobcat Badge by learning the basics of what scouting is all about.

Our first pack meeting will be held on 9/15 from 7-8 at St. Max.

Registration is ongoing.  Please remember to bring your checkbook to the meeting so you can register your scout.  Dues for the year are $150, payable by check to BSA Pack 227.

Check out our "Upcoming Events" (link at top of page) to sign up for the September Flag Ceremony and our shooting sports day.

Mark your calendars for our rescheduled Fall Campout.  We will be tent camping at Malibu Creek State Park October 21-23.  Don't miss out on this fun family event.  More details and sign ups to come.
