Castaic Pack 580 Halloween Carnival at Northlake NPR


Castaic Pack 580 will have their next Pack Meeting this Thursday, October 20th, 2016 at Northlake Elementary MPR.

There will be a Halloween Carnival, hosted by the Bear Den, featuring carnival games, a costume contest, Trick-Or-Treat, and much more!

Scouts are to come to the meeting in their best Halloween costume and be prepared for a night of fun and treats!

ATTENTION BEAR PARENTS: Please be at Northlake no later than 6 PM on Thursday to help set up for the carnival and prepared to be on hand to run one of the carnival games. Bears need to be present and participating in order to receive credit toward their "Grin and Bear It" Requirement. We really need your participation on Thursday to make this carnival a success for everyone!

Fundraising Update

Our Fundraising this year has been FANTASTIC Thus far! We have 11 scouts who have already met their fundraising goal of $300 (and beyond) and there are 2 scouts that have already raised more than $600, earning themselves a free week of summer camp!! BRAVO!! Many thanks to the scouts and their parents that have gone above and beyond to raise money for the many activities that we provide for our scouts and families!

Because we have had such great participation in popcorn fundraising this year, we have sold most of our stock (around $10,000 in sales - $3,600 of this goes to the Pack). We are nearly out of popcorn, so if you would still like to booth, please contact Jen as soon as possible before we run completely out of current stock. You can still do popcorn pre-orders - We need the money for any pre-orders that you have.

If we do not have the money for these orders by October 31st, these products cannot get ordered.

If you have any popcorn pre-orders, please see Jen or Tom at the meeting on Thursday so we can get them ordered before the due date.

Other Fundraising Opportunities!

Although we are almost sold out of our current popcorn stock, we do now have cases of chocolate bars to sell. They are from "World's Finest Chocolate" and are in cases of 60 - each bar sells for $1.00 and we make 50 cents per bar ($30 profit per 60 bar case). This is a great opportunity for those who are still short of their fundraising goal or would like to raise more money to reach free camp!

Please let Jen know if you would like a case of chocolate to sell. The chocolate usually sells very well and there is a limited amount, so please let us know before it is gone!


There are still a few scouts that have not reached their fundraising goal or have not begun to fundraise yet. We still have some popcorn to sell if you are interested in boothing (you can get donations when you booth also), popcorn orders can still be placed by 10/31, and cases of chocolate bars can be sold. But once these dates have passed and the product has all been sold, then you will have to make up the difference of what is owed. We have offered opportunities to fundraise, so please don't delay if you still need to fundraise!
