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/

Justin Harrison's Eagle Board this Thursday

Posted on Aug 27 2016 - 9:19pm

Justin Harrison's Eagle Scout Board of Review is this Thursday, 9/1/2016 at 8:30 pm.

We need to support the Eagle Board process by sending at least two adults to sit on the 8:30 board for the other Scout having a board at the same time as Justin. We try not to put board members with the scout from their Troop.  If you can help please sign up at

Any adult over the age of 21 can do this, even our newest parents.  No training is needed and there will be a list of sample questions that you can use if needed.

If you're servicing on a board or just want to celebrate with Justin, the boards will be held at 

23382 Mill Creek Dr. #125, Laguna Hills, CA 92653

Court of Honor

Posted on Aug 27 2016 - 9:19pm
Scouts and Parents:
Our next Court of Honor is just around the corner and we have a lot to celebrate.  You have all been working hard earning merit badges and moving up in rank.  On Monday, 9/19/2016, at 7:00 p.m. we will recognize your achievements at the Court of Honor.
You have around 6 weeks left to turn in blue cards and request Board of Reviews (BOR).  You are not allowed to have your Scoutmaster Conference and BOR on the same night; so you will want to plan ahead.  Also, keep in mind that I need to coordinate with several people in order to make the BOR happen; therefore I ask that you email me early in the week to provide me time to schedule your BOR.
Please see the BOR process below:
1. Scoutmaster Conference
2. Scoutmaster Emails Advancement Chair notifying completion of Scoutmaster Conference and Scout is ready for BOR
3. Scout Requests BOR from Advancement Chair via Email (phscouts@cox.net)
4. Scout has BOR 
I look forward to receiving additional merit badges and hearing from those of you who are ready to advance.  Should you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me.
Thank you,
Mrs. LeBeau
