One of the trademarks of a good Scout or Scouter is knowing your resources. From Internet links, forms and applications, to program and training materials, look to this section for your Scouting needs.
Call Ahead to Reserve These Items Any Time, No Charge
Flag Retirement Kits
Free at both our service centers.
The kits include an American flag that has been given to the Scout office for retirement and an instruction sheet on how to do a flag retirement ceremony. The instruction sheet describes how to cut up the flag (so it is no longer considered a flag before burning it), a script to use during the retirement, info on flag recycling, and some flag history. This is a perfect program to enhance a Den, Pack, Patrol or Troop ceremony or meeting.
We have a set of 10 CPR dummies you can use to teach your Scouts or train your leaders.
Fire Circle Seat Cushions
For use at the Lucie Stern Center Fire Circle.
These seat pads can be checked out at the Palo Alto Scout Shop during regular shop hours. To reserve, stop by or call (650) 327-5900.
GPS Units & Compasses
We have 8 GPS units and compasses that your Pack, Troop, or Crew can borrow to introduce Scouts to Global Positioning Systems and its usefulness for land navigation. If you are looking for more of a challenge, have fun locating hidden geocaches using these incredible tools.
Scout Service Project Signs
These can be checked out for Eagle or unit service projects. Let your neighbors know the good things the Boy Scouts are doing!
Located behind the Palo Alto Scout Shop, the Pacific Skyline Council is proud to offer the area affectionately known as "The Fire Circle" for unit special events and meetings.
This beautiful brick courtyard and fire ring is big enough to seat 300 individuals and boasts a stage and lighting to make any evening event all that much more memorable. To reserve the Fire Circle, contact either council office.
Canopy & Tabletop Display Items
We have a 10'x10' popup canopy, 6' and 8' table cloths, free-standing tabletop signs and a floor sign (retractor) for units to check out from the Foster City Service Center. These can be used indoors or outdoors at Art & Wine festivals, fairs, school recruitment nights, etc. Sign panels include Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Venturing, Exploring, and Sea Scouts programs. Call to reserve (650) 341-5633.
Use the Scout Service Centers for group meetings.
The Foster City Service Center has two large meeting rooms (for up to 12 people each), both equipped with WiFi and audio/visual equipment. The Palo Alto Service Center's main room, also equipped with state of the art A/V equipment, provides space for crowds of up to 59. Space does fill quickly, so be sure to contact either council office to reserve your space as early as possible.
