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,

The city of Mission Viejo will officially welcome home our Vietnam Veterans.
Most of you know that when our Veterans returned home after the Vietnam War...they did not receive the proper welcome.

Scouts and Scouters have been asked the line Veteran Way leading up to the Norman P Murray Center in Uniform waving US Flags.

Mark your Pack, Troop, Crew, and Ship calendars now: 20 September.
This is on the District Calendar.

More info to follow as we get closer.

Written by our very own Dave Klein of Troop 918.

Here is a little bit of what you will read..."Everyone was involved and invested and everyone had their appropriate role. When it’s game time, it’s up to the youth to make it happen. Parents and coaches don’t go onto the field to play the game for them."

What you may expect to experience at the Scout Expo: interactive-hands on activities for you and your Scout, fun Scout Skill games, lively conversation between Scouts, Parents, and Leaders about Troop ideals/program, and so much more …the options are limitless.
