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/

Andy Bethurum Eagle Project

Posted on Jun 15 2019 - 10:45pm

Hey Scouts and Families,

My name is Andy Bethurum and I'm a Life Scout in the troop. I am currently working on completing my Eagle Scout Project.

The project will be replacing the plastic meshing by the Refinery sand volleyball court with a staggered fence. The set date for the project is July 27-28.

In order to complete my project, I must raise $2,500, before the set date, in order to buy all of the materials needed. Please help with a donation of any amount to the pay pal below, it would be greatly appreciated! 

Thank you so much,
Andy Bethurum
Life Scout
Troop 918


P.S. If you have any questions about the project or the donations please feel free to email me, I'd be more than happy to answer!

Have you outgrown your Uniform?

Posted on Jun 15 2019 - 10:45pm

Scout age boys grow fast!  They typically grow out of their uniforms before they are worn out.  If you have a uniform that you have outgrown, consider donating it to the Troop Thrift so that someone else can benefit.
