Our prayers go out to all of the families affected by the Thomas fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. Los Padres Council knows too well the devastation wild fires can cause. Please keep the families affected in your prayers, specially our own Los Padres Council families in South Coast District. 

Thank you to all the fire fighters and first responders for their bravery and commitment to our community.

God bless us all. 

Yours in Scouting,
Carlos Cortez
Scout Executive & CEO

Whittier 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.
