Scout-O-Rama - February 2nd

February 2, 2013 - Santa Maria Town Center Mall - FREE

Join thousands of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers from across the Central Coast at the annual Los Padres Council Scout-O-Rama.

“What is a Scout-O-Rama?”

It’s one of the best ways for Scouting to show our communities all the great things that go on in Scouting. Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Venturing Crews put on booths, games, and activities in the Town Center Mall for the thousands of visitors who attend each year.

“Can Our Unit Put on a Booth or Activity??”

YES!! Absolutely. The possibilities are limitless!!! (except for the space and rules of the mall): Pinewood derbies, space derbies, rain gutter regatta, rubber band target shooting, soap carving, realistic first aid, model campsites, monkey bridges (think safety!), map and compass, leather work, mask making, and the list goes on. Plan now for your display (remember to make it interactive) and mark the date on your calendar.

Some of the highlights from the 2012 Scout-O-Rama were:

  • Council-Wide Pinewood Derby for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Adults, and Siblings
  • LEGO Derby
  • Climbing Wall
  • SB County SWAT Team
  • Rubber Band Gun Target Shooting
  • Monkey Bridges

This year we plan to have more Scouting units and community organizations participating and more Scouts attending this free event!

Check out the photo album of all the great fun activities at the 2012 Scout-O-Rama.
