Cub Scout Fun!

In addition to regular den meetings and monthly pack meetings, where Cub Scouts do and learn lots of fun things, we schedule great activities throughout the year. Besides Monterey Bay Trekker hikes, camping, and other excursions, in a typical year, we do the following:
Not everyone participates in all these events, but all are welcome.

Here are some other things we do (not necessarily every year):
  • Pacific Grove fire station visit
  • Pacific Grove police station visit
  • Kayaking in Elkhorn Slough
  • Point Sur Lighthouse visit
  • Recycled Raingutter Regatta (racing "boats" made of recycled materials)
  • Learning first aid from a nurse or other professional
  • Float Night at the Monterey Sports Center
  • Animal Friends Rescue Project visit
  • Beach bonfire & hot dog roast
  • Bicycling excursion/bike rodeo
  • Fishing outing
In addition to all this, some Cub Scouts and their families do the following activities:
  • Cub Scout Day Camp (summer only)
  • Cub Scout Family Camp (camping at a BSA-owned property—the whole family is welcome!)
  • Cub-ON (Cub Scout Family Camp at a property run by a neighboring council)
  • Cub Scout Shoot-outs (learning to enjoy archery, BB guns, and slingshots safely)
  • District-wide Pinewood Derby Championship Races (Pack 125 ran the district race in 2020!)
Pack 125 loves to camp, and we'd be happy to have you join us! Camping is a wonderful way to spend time in nature, away from electronics. Camping has proven benefits. At Cub Camps, Scouts get to do a variety of outdoor activities, such as climbing wall, canoeing, shooting sports, swimming, crafts, fishing, nature hikes, and more (not all camps offer all activities). Parents can join the fun, or just relax around a campfire, without worrying about food—meals at family camps are prepared by professional staff in an on-site kitchen, so campers do no planning or cooking.

The BSA has put together a page of typical Cub Scout activities. You'll find more information about the sorts of great activities that your child can do as a Cub Scout.

You don't have to do all of these activities, but Cub Scouts and their families always have lots of fun doing them. Come join us!

Want to join the fun? Please contact us! You can use e-mail (, or call us at 831–204–8180.

Cub Scout Day Camp

Our council hosts day camps for Cub Scouts throughout the summer.

Cub Scout Day Camp is a daytime camp adventure where Cub Scouts and parents experience a bigger part of Scouting. Programs range from one to five days in length. Each camp offers a variety of activities, often including arts & crafts, games, archery, BB guns, sports, and Scout skills. Cub Scouts will make progress on various adventures, no matter what rank they are in. (For day camp purposes, Cub Scouts are considered to be the rank they will work on from the fall. Per BSA rules, youth who have not yet entered kindergarten do not attend summer activities, but those who finished kindergarten in the spring are more than welcome at summer activities.)

The most convenient Cub Scout Day Camp for us on the Monterey Peninsula is at Toro Park, which is usually held mid-June (the picture is of a water rocket launch at Toro Park Day Camp). However, you are free to attend any day camp you wish. 

More information can be found online at our council's day camp website.

If you travel during the summer, you may attend day camp sponsored by another council. Find the council where you will visit, and check their website.

More Fun Stuff!

Cub Scouts have lots of opportunities to do fun stuff! Here we have some scenes from Family Camp (at Chesebrough Scout Reservation in the Santa Cruz Mountains), from Day Camp (at Toro Park), and many other activities. Blacksmithing, archery, BB guns, climbing a climbing tower, playing in a redwood forest, hiking at Pinnacles, making friends with banana slugs, meeting firefighters & police officers, learning first aid from an RN, playing games at the Crossover Picnic—we do all kinds of fun things! Please join us, and together with your child, make memories that last a lifetime.
