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/

Happy Holidays!

Employment Opportunity at Lost Valley!

Posted on Dec 10 2014 - 6:32pm

 Are you 14 years old or older? Are you looking for a summer job? Are you willing to spend at least 4 weeks away from home?  If so, this is the perfect opportunity for you!  The Schoepe Scout Reservation at Lost Valley (SSRLV) is looking for Scouts who show exemplary Scout Spirit to help run the camp during Cb Scout Weekend and Summer Camp. You must be registered with the Boy Scouts of America and have an up-to-date medical waiver.  With a four-week commitment, you get housing in a cabin, meals, and $300 pay per week!  Sound good?  Ask your parents and fill out an application.  Hurry! Only 70 spots available! (NOTE: If you are not accepted to staff SSRLV, you can choose to have your application forwarded to Newport Sea Base (NSB) or the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center (IROEC)). Also, bike transportation is the main way around Lost Valley!  It is recommended that you have camped at Lost Valley for summer camp as a camper before becoming a staff member.  It looks better knowing you've been here before!
