CCCM Pack 316

Why Pack 316?

As part of the Scouting Ministry at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, Pack 316 has been committed to encouraging and developing young people since 1984.

The Scouting Ministry of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa is established for the purpose of being a ministry to young people and families of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. The Scouting Ministry proclaims the supremacy of God and the Lordship of Jesus Christ as a fundamental belief and foundation. The purpose of this Scouting Ministry is to help the youth develop into Christian leaders. The Scouting Ministry has elected to use the scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America as the primary vehicle to achieve this purpose

What is Cub Scouts about?
