** Family Scouting **

In October 2017, Boy Scouts of America (BSA) announced the acceptance of girls into the program. This historic decision comes after years of receiving request from families, girls and input for leaders and members. The BSA program leaders at Queen of Angels would like to accept girls, but we want to get feedback from the community. Please take the 2 minute survey below to let us know of your interest. Additionally, below are links to the BSA announcement and more information on family scouting.

Sailing with the Sea Scouts Summer 2011

This pack event will take place multiple times in the Month of August 2011 on Lake Michigan from Monroe Harbor. This is a rare opportunity for ALL the boys in the pack to meet the Sea Scouts, board their Sailing Vessel and take a ride with them on Lake Michigan. This event is absolutely free and the only thing we require is at least a 2 to 1 ratio of Boys to Adults; the only exception are Tiger Scouts without another Sibling in the Pack ( Parent/Guardian would need to attend ).

Because we want as many boys to attend and the limited seating on the ship, we will schedule out the following dates for you and your son to choose and reply back in email to me as soon as possible so that we can form touring groups. So each of these groups is a first reply- first serve basis, once a group is at Maximum capacity of 20;  I will place you in your second choice date.


Please select your 1st & 2nd Choice Date:

Group #1 Thursday August 11th 6:00pm could not be filled short notice

Group #2 Tuesday August 16th 6:00pm spots full

Group #3 Thursday August 18th 6:00pm could not be filled presently

MORE DATES to follow should there be interest

** If we need to schedule out more dates after this we can, for now we want to see how much interest and availability exists for the pack. This is also weather permitting!

The Ship & Location

You would be sailing on “Nautilus”, a 47′ racing-designed sloop which has broad, flat decks. This deck design, while optimum for racing, also lends itself to carrying more people during a leisure sail. With that in mind, she should be able to carry up to 20 of your group. Nautilus is moored in Monroe Harbor, opposite Buckingham Fountain and Grant Park.


Please reply back by Email to Jim McCabe and let me know the following if your son plans to attend;

Your Son’s Name:

Your Son’s Age:

If Parent/Guardian is attending , Name of Adult:

1st Choice & 2nd Choice Date:

Also, if you have a PFD ( life vest for your son already):

See you on the high seas!!
