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 during 2014 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.

Commencing January 8, 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

Extra Miler Award Nominations are Now Being Accepted

Posted by gbeck on Nov 15 2014 - 9:01pm

Attention Unit Committee Chairs - This nomination is for the adults in your unit that your unit committee feels have “gone the extra mile” during the 2014 scouting year. Each unit is invited (and encouraged) to submit 1 Extra Miler nomination per 25 youth or fraction thereof (but not less than 2 nominations per unit). As such, if you have 20 youth in your unit, you can nominate 2 adults (20 divided by 25 = 0 + 1 + 1). If you have 55 youth, you can nominate 4 adults (55 divided by 25 = 2 + 1 +1).  Please submit your nominations by December 31, 2014 to extramiler@saddlebackdistrict.org.
