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/

Summer Camp Payments

Posted on Apr 9 2016 - 9:07pm

Your help is needed . . .

We have made reservations based on RSVP's for Summer Camp and the Troop is following a payment schedule in sending payments to Camp Kern.  We have a payment due to in about a week, however, several families are a bit behind in making your payments to the Troop.

Most families have not made the $120 payment that was due last week, April 4th.  A few of you have a little more to make up.  Please go to the Online Payments link to bring your account up to date as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about payments, please contact Dave Klein or Carmen Chan.  

Please click here to see the payment schedule     Thanks for your assistance!

Reimbursement Receipts

Posted on Apr 9 2016 - 9:07pm

Do you have receipts from camping food or other expenses?  

Please do not hold onto your receipts for more than 30 days. In fact, we would appreciate it if you would turn in a reimbursement request at the next Troop meeting after you have spent the funds.

You can submit your receipts to the Troop Treasurer for reimbursement. Click on the Files link on our website menu to find a reimbursement request form. Fill it out and submit it to our Troop Treasurer, Mrs. Carmen Chan.  She can also be reached by email at treasurer@troop918.com

Don't forget:  Our budget plan for meals is 3-4-5.  We plan to spend $3 for breakfast, $4 for lunch and $5 for dinner per scout in your patrol.  Account for the total meals your patrol will be preparing and the amount of Scouts registered to attend from your patrol and then do the math.  You should also plan to make you any desert, snacks or other special purchases fit within that budget as well.
