Cub Scout Day Camp will be held at St. Hedwig Church in Los Alamitos as we combine with the Orange Frontier District this year. The theme this year is "African Safari." The camp will fill up quickly, so register soon!
The new requirements for the Bobcat badge have been published. These requirements will become effective June 1, 2015 as part of the transition to the new Cub program. You can download a copy of the new requirements by clicking here (Word document).
There are still district positions available! If you would like to nominating candidates or to apply for the open positions on the Commissioner and Program Staff please contact Jorge. With your help, we can lighten the load on the current staff and improve our support of the Units within our District.

El Capitan District Facebook Group
Rub electronic shoulders with other members of the District, keep abreast of the most up-to-the-minute discussion, and take the opportunity to network with other Scouters by joining our Facebook Group.
If you still hase not joined the El Capitan Networking Facebook Group, please consider doing so. It is the best way to be in contact with fellow Scouters in the District, ask questions, bring news, post events in your Units or Community, post pictures, etc. This group was created to facilitate open, up and down communication among the adult leadership of El Capitan District's Cub Scout, Boy Scout, OA and Venture Crews. It is a place to ask questions, gain knowledge, make suggestions and promote what
your units are doing in Scouting.

The Lutheran Association of Scouters, Southern California Area is sponsoring their 64th annual camporee. Any unit sponsored by a Lutheran Church may participate (not all the scouts need be Lutherans). Event details have not yet been finalized, but Lutheran-affiliated troops are asked to please save the date.
The consolidated District calendar of events is available Microsoft Word Document Format (click to download). This is a great tool to allow your unit to know "what's going on" so that you can join in on District-wide events.
