Troop 918 is sponsored by Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California.  Our goal is to develop Godly young men of great character with a heart of service for others and knowledge and respect for the outdoors.

The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for its youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA has developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies, and provides parents and leaders the following online and print resources for all scouting progams.  For more information please visit: www.ocbsa.org/youth-protection/

Court of Honor

Posted on Aug 6 2016 - 7:52pm
Scouts and Parents:
Our next Court of Honor is just around the corner and we have a lot to celebrate.  You have all been working hard earning merit badges and moving up in rank.  On Monday, 9/19/2016, at 7:00 p.m. we will recognize your achievements at the Court of Honor.
You have around 6 weeks left to turn in blue cards and request Board of Reviews (BOR).  You are not allowed to have your Scoutmaster Conference and BOR on the same night; so you will want to plan ahead.  Also, keep in mind that I need to coordinate with several people in order to make the BOR happen; therefore I ask that you email me early in the week to provide me time to schedule your BOR.
Please see the BOR process below:
1. Scoutmaster Conference
2. Scoutmaster Emails Advancement Chair notifying completion of Scoutmaster Conference and Scout is ready for BOR
3. Scout Requests BOR from Advancement Chair via Email (phscouts@cox.net)
4. Scout has BOR 
I look forward to receiving additional merit badges and hearing from those of you who are ready to advance.  Should you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me.
Thank you,
Mrs. LeBeau

Reimbursement Receipts

Posted on Apr 9 2016 - 9:07pm

Do you have receipts from camping food or other expenses?  

Please do not hold onto your receipts for more than 30 days. In fact, we would appreciate it if you would turn in a reimbursement request at the next Troop meeting after you have spent the funds.

You can submit your receipts to the Troop Treasurer for reimbursement. Click on the Files link on our website menu to find a reimbursement request form. Fill it out and submit it to our Troop Treasurer, Mrs. Carmen Chan.  She can also be reached by email at treasurer@troop918.com

Don't forget:  Our budget plan for meals is 3-4-5.  We plan to spend $3 for breakfast, $4 for lunch and $5 for dinner per scout in your patrol.  Account for the total meals your patrol will be preparing and the amount of Scouts registered to attend from your patrol and then do the math.  You should also plan to make you any desert, snacks or other special purchases fit within that budget as well.
