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.

Silver Beaver Award Nominations Now Open!

Posted by gbeck on Aug 24 2014 - 10:27pm

The Silver Beaver Award is the council level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. It is the highest honor a local council can bestow upon a registered adult leader. The award is intended to acknowledge noteworthy service of exceptional character to youth by registered Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity and Venturing leaders within the territory under the jurisdiction of the local Council.

It is considered the highest award a Boy Scout Council can bestow upon a volunteer Scouter.

The Silver Beaver Award is given to individuals who, through hard work, self sacrifice, dedication and many years of service, have evidenced exceptional service to the BSA, service of exceptional character to non-Scouting youth, and service or standing within the community.
 
The Orange County Council presents Silver Beaver Awards annually at the Annual Recognition Dinner. This year's dinner and award ceremony will be held on March 11, 2015.
