Welcome to Pack 52!

Cub Scout Pack 52 is made up of Kindergarten to 5th grade students attending primarily Del Rey Elementary school in Orinda, CA.  Our pack has been in formation for over 50 years!  The site includes announcements about upcoming meetings, pack news, a calendar of upcoming events and a place to share great photos of our pack in action. 

Thank you for your interest in Pack 52!  If you are interested in joining Pack 52 or have any questions about the program, please email us at recruiting@pack52orinda.org

 

Spring Campout: 5/13-5/15

Posted on May 7 2022 - 3:46pm

Registration for the Spring Campout is open!  

The Spring Campout will be Friday, May 13th through Sunday, May 15th.  We will again be at the Hawk Ridge Group Campsite in Anthony Chabot Regional Park.  While we would have liked to have experienced a different campsite, the overwhelming attendance we had in the fall (112 Scouts and family members!) leaves Hawk Ridge the only campsite that can accommodate us.

Let’s Get Ready to Race!!! Annual Pinewood Derby (Saturday, February 26th)

Posted on Feb 22 2022 - 9:25am
Scouts and Families!
 
Whether you're new to the derby or a part of a veteran racing team, the Pinewood Derby is the highlight of the Scouting Year and offers our Scouts the opportunity to work literally hand in hand with a parent or guardian on an experience that will be remembered for a lifetime.  It's not about winning or losing, but how you 'approach the race'.  Have fun, don't worry too much and leave it all out there on the track!
 
Race weigh-in is Wednesday, February 23rd and Race day is Saturday, February 26th!   And without further ado, here are your details:
 
 
Race Car Weigh-in / Impound:
 
Wednesday, February 23rd: 5pm - 7pm @ Dey Rey.    All cars must be weighed in and impounded with our Derby Chairs a few days before race day.  The impound/weigh-in will take place at the front of Del Rey Elementary School from 5-7pm on Wednesday.  Our Derby Chairs will have tools and supplies available for some last-minute detailing and will confirm that the cars meet all of the racing rules (copied below).  Depending on the number of folks who are there when you arrive and if your Scout needs to make adjustments to their car, the process should take just a few minutes.  
 

Race Day - Saturday, February 26th (10:00 am - 2 pm):  This year's race will be held, again, at the Pack 52 Superspeedway (a.ka.a Holy Shepherd Lutheran Church at 433 Moraga Way).  As long as we have sufficient volunteer help to set up, we should be wrapped up by 2 pm.  We will have race day food provided by our Bear Den.  All your Scout will need to do is vote for their picks for Scout Chosen Awards and have fun!

Welcome Back Pack 52 Scouts and Families! Message from Cubmaster Bergschneider

Hello Pack 52 Scouts and Families,

 
On behalf of the entire Pack 52 Leadership Committee, I'd like to welcome you to the start of the Scouting year!  First and foremost, I hope that this finds all of our Scouts and families healthy and safe in what continues to be challenging times.  Now more than ever, the Cub Scout motto of 'Do Your Best' applies to almost everything around us and we hope everyone is adjusting to the new approach to remote schooling (and living) in which we all find ourselves.
