Welcome !

Welcome to Saddleback District's website!

 In order to improve the communication with all the Units, Scouts, Scouters and Parents in Saddleback District, we redesigned and improved your Website.

One feature of this website is the ability to send out weekly Eblasts to all subscribers with up-to-date information and changes as they may occur.  

 Please personally register on this site to receive the weekly Eblast.

 We will be running both sites concurrently.  Please visit http://saddleback.ocbsa.org/ 

 For more information about District events and information to help you serve the youth of Saddleback District, attend the District Roundtable Meetings.

 Roundtable meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month at the LDS Church, Trabuco Ward Building, 24755 Trabuco Rd, Lake Forest.

This is between Bake and Lake Forest.

 

Yours in Scouting,

Internet Advancement Policy

 

As of July 1 the OC Council Advancement Committee made the decision to enact the BSA national policy that all advancements must be submitted online via the Internet Advancement Page on the www.myscouting.org website at our local council level. There will be a grace period extended until Sept 1 where the OC Council will continue to accept paper submissions for Advancement. After this date, the Council Service Center will no longer provide the paper advancement form and the Scout Shop will require the online print out of the advancement submission in order to purchase advancements.
 
If you are new to internet advancements please consult the Internet Advancement Training PDF provided https://gallery.mailchimp.com/1b4789f7f263125755c4f4b12/files/55ec140d-69c3-47dd-b0f3-1fd508270750.pdf

Scouting Booth at Mission Viejo Fourth of July Street Faire

Posted by gbeck on Jun 21 2014 - 3:03pm

The District will be showcasing our Scouting programs in the Saddleback Valley with a booth at the Mission Viejo Street Faire on the Fourth of July.  This purpose of this presence is to promote Scouting and share membership information.  We had a booth last year and obtained dozens of names and contact information from families interested in our Scouting program.  I suspect we will do even better this year.  For more information on the Street Faire, just click on http://mvactivities.com/july04.htm.

The Mission Viejo Fourth of July Street Faire is a terrific family day of fun, good food, and entertainment.  It takes place on Olympiad between Melinda and Marguerite.  There are carnival rides, face painting, and food for purchase.  There are FREE games and entertainment.    

This year, Scouts in Saddleback will provide one of the fun FREE games AND a recruiting opportunity!  Kids play and parents talk.  We need boys to "man the game" and adults to share their enthusiasm for Scouts with prospective families. 

WE NEED HELP STAFFING OUR BOOTH from 12-6pm on July 4th
