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/

Surprise Christmas Decorating Service Project

Posted on Nov 22 2014 - 10:10pm

DATE CHANGE:  Surprise Christmas Decorating now on Sat Dec 13th.

This service event has become a Troop 918 classic in just a few years. All who participate have said that it was much fun and very rewarding. Families welcome and encouraged to join in!

We will be surprising a local needy family and bringing Jesus into their life by decorating their home with Christmas lights and decorations, and setting up a tree. We'll working with the church to identify a family who otherwise would not have funds to do this on their own. More details to follow as we get some confirmations on the planning side. This will likely be an AM project depending on the beneficiary family and how we can work out the surprise.
