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/

No Scout Left Behind

Posted on May 18 2019 - 10:49pm

Troop 918 has a policy that no Scout should stay home due to finances.  We have been blessed with the ability to assist where there is a need.  If this would make a difference in your Scout participating, we want to discreetly help.
Please contact our any of the following people:  Scoutmaster Mike Karn, Committee Chair Simon Akhaven or Acitivites Chair, ASM Dave Klein.

Have you outgrown your Uniform?

Posted on May 18 2019 - 10:49pm

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.
