Cub Scout Pack 586, Torrance, Ca
Chartered through First Lutheran Church

You’ll want to be a kid again when you see how many awesome things our Cubs get to do, like...Go to a museum, a police or fire station, a sporting event, tv station, a concert or play; take a hike, play catch, learn about the flag, first aid, historical field trip, use tools to build something like a toolbox or scooter or Cubmobile, make a collection, learn how to cook, show your bicycling skills, create a new board game, help your church, use invisible ink, learn sign language, do a skit, make a kite or model plane/boat/car/etc., read a book, use stilts, throw a party, build and play a musical instrument, paint, learn which birds are which, take care of your pet, plant plants, tie knots, build a treasure hunt, go fishing, any sport you can think of, play video games, learn another language, build your muscles, and the list keeps going …

MORE ABOUT SCOUTING WITH PACK 586:

Scouting offers many opportunities for extra advancement and recognition:
And, if you already know how to do something, it will be even easier to get the achievement recognition for it! Electives in each rank, Hiking Program, World Conservation Award, Religious Awards, Academic & Sports Awards Program (Check out usscouts.org for complete lists of all advancement)

All new Cub Scouts work to earn their Bobcat badge during their first month of Cub Scouts (regardless of age), which includes learning the Boy Scout Law and Oath, Cub Scout Sign, Handshake, Motto, Salute, the meaning of Webelos, and completing with your adult parent or guardian the booklet "How to Protect Your Children from Child Abuse."

The registration fee: $130 per year
(except for 5th grade – $75 for part-year, then move to Boy Scouts)

Our tradition is no mandatory pack-wide fundraising, since many kids are already involved in other school and sports-related fundraisers, however, we do participate in a fun mistletoe fundraiser in December that helps offset the costs of our Blue and Gold ceremony.  There is no minimum selling required and it is a fun Den event.  If you’re interested in helping with fundraising, membership, organization, etc., we need you on the Pack Committee!
