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.

2015 Rountable meetings will be held at the Refinery on the campus of Saddleback Church located at 1 Saddleback Parkway in Lake Forest. The meeting will start at 7pm but all are invited to arrive early for fellowship and a meal.


Yours in Scouting,

 The Saddleback District Committee

2015 Scout Expo

Great Rancho Campout, Friday July 31, Rancho Santa Margarita

Posted by jeffduer on Jul 9 2015 - 10:37pm

SAMLARC is looking for at least one Cub Scout Pack, one Boy Scout Troop, and one Venturing Crew to set up and man individual booths (similar to Scout-o-rama booths) between 5-8 PM on July 31. Depending on availability, flag raising/lowering color guard ceremonies may be involved. There may also be a need for Scouts in the early afternoon to assist inexperienced families in setting up their tents. This is a wonderful opportunity for Scouts to "demonstrate their skills" before neighbors and friends, perform some community service, recruit new Scouts, and just have fun.  Contact Ed Rainsford of the Saddleback District Advancement Committee at edmundjrainsford@gmail.com for particulars.
