We have been serving the youth of Pleasanton for over 50 years, putting the Outing in Scouting, through community service, camping in the great outdoors, and allowing our youth to learn by example through the leadership of our youth. We develop responsible and capable youth through camping, adventure, learning and most importantly, through fun and friendship.

Happy New Year – I hope you all have a safe New Years Eve and are ready to start of 2015!

We have our first set of Board of Reviews January 27th. As of now we do not have enough parents signed up to complete these reviews and We do have 2 boys registered for a review

Please use the link below and sign up to help with a review.

Just as a reminder….Board of Reviews are an essential part of the advancement process in scouting, especially as we near the end of the scouting year.

If we do not have enough parents at each BOR session then boys will begin to miss advancement opportunities.

 We have 4 board of review opportunities before summer camp.  Please sign up, mark your calendars and take 90 minutes to help the scouts continue their journey.
