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/

Aiden Soller Eagle Fundraising

Posted on Sep 20 2019 - 1:48pm
Hello friends,
My name is Aiden Soller and I am currently a 14 year old Boy Scout of Troop 918. I have been part of scouting for over 8 years. Currently, I am working toward the highest rank in Boy Scouts, the rank of Eagle Scout. In order to complete this rank, I need to develop, plan, and lead an Eagle Project that benefits the community. 
I plan to create three benches to be placed on Shaver Lake. I have been visiting Shaver Lake since I was born and I hope to give back to the homeowners and visitors by improving others experience and making it as magical for them as it is for me. The three benches will be placed on community beach access areas where they can be enjoyed by all who visit Shaver Lake. Through my planning I expect my project to cost about $1,700. 
I am asking that you consider donating to my project. Any donation, no matter how large or how small, will be of great help. I realize not all families are able to make donations and if that is the case I simply ask for your moral support.
(Any donations can be sent to my home address, or you can donate online using the PayPal link below. Please write any checks to Troop 918.)
Your thoughts, prayers and help are greatly appreciated and will make my project possible. 
Thank you for your time and support!
Best Regards,
Aiden Soller

Pack 918 Award Ceremony

Please join us this Monday, 30 minutes early, at 6:30 PM in full uniform

We will be attending the beginning of the Pack 918 Meeting in support of our fellow 918 Cub Scout as he receives a BSA National Certificate of Merit for saving his little sister from drowning.

This is a great opportunity to both support a fellow scout in the Saddleback Church/918 family and to build our relationship with Pack 918.

Little Jimmy Backpack Trip

Posted on Sep 7 2019 - 8:38pm

Troop 918 Beginning Backpackers and Future High Adventure Scouts,



I would like to invite you and your boys on an introduction to High Adventure Backpacking trip! If you don’t have gear, and want to do this with our troop long term, head out to REI or other retail and get some gear for this weekend! REI also rents backpacks and we at the troop also have gear to borrow if you need to. We believe in NO SCOUT LEFT BEHIND.

Adults will have stoves and water filters. If you have these and want to test them out, please bring them! We will make a group menu at the Sept 9thScout meeting, but will be purchased by leaders and split up for carrying among stronger scouts. Remember, this is for all you new scouts who want a real taste of the High Adventure that awaits!

There is no cost for this trip.
