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/

Scouts Needed for Flag Ceremony

Posted on Jul 18 2014 - 8:13pm

Description: lake forest
The City of Lake Forest has asked for our help leading a flag ceremony on Tuesday, Aug 5th for the National Night Out event which is also the grand opening for a new city park in Baker Ranch.   This is the new community off of Bake Parkway near Home Depot and Kinko's.  The ceremony is scheduled for 5pm.  I don't think we'll be needed after about 5:30 but Scouts are welcome to stay with their familis to enjoy the events.  Please register your participation here.

Water Slide Camp

Posted on Jul 18 2014 - 8:13pm

A great mid-summer event!  Come, slide and get wet!!!
Yucaipa water park has a 350-foot giant water slide and a 290-foot aqua tube water slide, plus a white sand beach and a one-acre swim lagoon and a grassy land.

We'll meet at church Friday at 6:30 and be home mid afternoon on Sunday.

Camp is $45 per Scout which includes the $10 all day water slide pass!  Bring a few bucks for lunch on the way home Sunday afternoon.

Scouts who have ot taken the swm test within the past 12 months will need to do so.  We'll schedule an oppertunity. This should only be a handfull as most will have attended summer camp or have taken the test for the canceled River Trip.

DATE CHANGE:  Our August water park camp was erroniously on the calendar as taking place on Aug 8-10.  The correct date is August 15-17.  Please make a note and plan to attend.

Please Visit Alex Bish

Posted on May 31 2014 - 9:59pm

Thanks so much for your support of the Bish family. At our Court of Honor we raised just over $350 to support their family. Well done Troop!

Austin and I visited Alex on Friday. When I asked if he would like more visitors from the Troop, he gave a quick and strong YES!

Visits are both wanted by the Bish family, and are therapeutic for Alex. I admit, it was a little scary and I was nervous not knowing what condition I would find Alex in and I was wondering what I would say. But it turned out to be easy to visit an old friend. I told him about things going on in Scouts and he can signal an answer to yes/no questions. While we were there some friends from his school swim team came to visit. They brought pictures from the team this year.

Ales is recovering at Health Bridge, 393 S Tustin St, Orange.  It's just off of Chapman and the 55.  Please contact Susie first to ensure that he isn’t having any doctors visits. She can be reached on her cell at 949-697-8525.
