It is with great pride that I like to invite you to attend the RA new campus ground breaking ceremony on Saturday, June 23 from 11 am to 2 pm.  The event will include a light meal, tour of the site with renderings of each area, and brief discussion about the plan and a formal ceremony.

We hope you can join us to see the future we are building for our youth and to hear how you can be part of the legacy.

The invitation is attached with the details and RSVP information.

Yours in Scouting,
Carlos Cortez

Rancho Alegre
Fire Fund:

Official Los Padres Council Fund for the Re-Building of Rancho Alegre

On July 8, 2017, the Whittier Fire broke out about 1:30 pm. The winds drove the flames over the camp destroying most of the structures ot both the Main Camp and at Larsen Meadow. Rancho Alegre has been the Council's home camp for 52 years.

There is insurance, but additional funds are needed to bring the camp back on line. To make a difference, please donate today.
