With safety in mind and based on guidance from CDC and WHO, state and federal health officials and authorities, in-person meetings, activities, events and gatherings for Pack 104 have been temporarily suspended. We are doing our part in protecting the health and well being of our scouts, families and broader community. The pack is dedicated to following the guidelines outlined by California, Contra Costa County and El Cerrito health department, as well as under the direction of our local BSA council and chartered organization.
Since mid-March, Pack 104 den leaders have been successfully conducting den meetings with their scouts exclusively in virtual settings. Activities and projects have been adapted as needed to enable scouts and their families to fulfill requirements at home for Cub Scout adventures and advance to the next level.
Some families are also planning hikes that will help their scouts earn Highlander and Trekker badges. While these hikes won’t be Pack-sanctioned they might be a great, lower-risk way for our scouts and families to get exercise, enjoy nature while still engaging in appropriate social distancing practices.
Be Prepared, Help Others and Stay Safe. It is important during this time that we remind ourselves of the Scouting Oath, Laws and Motto, and to work together to get all of us through these unprecedented times.
