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: https://www.scouting.org/training/youth-protection/

Whitewater Rafting Camp
May 24 2024 through May 27, 2024 (Memorial Day weekend, no school Monday).
Scouts will have the opportunity to complete their Whitewater and Kayaking merit badges while being led down the Kern River by outfitter Sierra South.
  They do a great job. 
We've used their services several times and they're affiliated with the Western Los Angeles Council as they use them for White Water rafting as part of BSA Camp Whitsett.
This event will include a day trip into the Sequoia National Forest to see the Trail of A Hundred Giants.  This includes trees that are over 2,000 years old...  Jesus was walking the earth when they started to grow.
  We'll need to leave Friday afternoon and will likely ask you to pull your Scout from school an hour or two early.  It's a Friday before a 3 day weekend just weeks before summer...  nobody is teaching much that afternoon anyway :-)
We've broken the cost into payments over 5 months.  Because we have to make payments to the camps, if you can pay-in-full, or pay ahead, it helps tremendously. 
Scouts $330
Leaders $165
Initial deposits are due Jan 29th with monthly payments on Feb 19, Mar 11, April 8, and May 6. 
Payments can be made
Check and Zelle are preferred as they save the troop PayPal fees, but all work fine.
