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/

Camp on Campus & ScoutEXPO

Posted on Aug 23 2014 - 9:16pm

Sept 20-21 will cover both Camp on Campus & ScoutEXPO

This is a relaxed and fun camp on our church campus.  We'll set up a great camp site and hang out on the field over the weekend at church to fly our Troop 918 colors and recruit some new Scouts!

This event is highly important as it raises awareness of Scouting with our Church.  All Scouts are asked to help with this event.  More details to come as PLC plans it.  

There is no cost for this event, however registration is necessary to ensure enough food.  Click here to register
Following Camp on Campus is the ScoutExpo on Sunday afternoon at Oso Lake.  This event is for recruiting new Scouts from the public and more specifically from Cub Scout Webelos looking to join Troops in the fall.   Click here to register for Scout Expo
ADULTS (PARENTS) will be needed to both clean-up at Church and set-up at Oso Lake in order to help Scouts to support both events.
At church we'll likely start cleaning about 11:30 and at Oso set-up will likely start at noon.  Times may be updated.
