There's LOTS of information here because we've got LOTS of fun activities coming up.  Please read all the way to the end and sign up for all of the opportunities you'd like so you don't miss out!

Thank you so much for joining us at the Blue and Gold Dinner.  At that time, we let you know about the Family Charitable Giving Effort to support Scouting beyond our regular dues.  Every dollar that we raise through this reduces dues that we will have to pay in future years and will help keep us from taking on other fundraising activities.  

We've set a goal of $4500 for this effort for the remainder of the year.  We've got about 100 families in Pack 296 which means that if we all give an average of $45 we'll meet that goal.  Some will give more, some less but please do make a tax-free donation if you can.  Make your gift here.  (Please mark Peralta District, Pack 296)

Our annual pack camping trip is Saturday, April 13th at Hawk Ridge camp in Anthony Chabot Regional Park.

The pack has reserved the campsite for 2 nights, April 12th AND 13th. You are welcome to spend the night in the park on your own on April 12th and the scheduled program will begin at 12:30 on the 13th. Please let us know on the form if you will be attending both evenings so we can get the parking pass and gate code to you. More details and sign up form here. Please sign up to help with food here.
