Boy Troop & Girl Troop

Invite You to Join the Adventure!

in Laguna Beach, California!

Boys and Girls can join Scouts BSA at age 11 or in the spring of their 5th grade year. They continue in Scouting up until age 18, when they can become adult volunteers. Your son or daughter will join one of our age and grade-based patrol groups in our Boy Troop 35, (est. 1945) or in the newly chartered Girl Troop 35  (est. 2019). If your scout is older than 11, ask us about which "patrol" they should join.

Register Today!

SCOUTS: If your son or daughter is new to Scouting, you'll need to fill out a Youth Application (click this link to download one) or you can go to the Scout Forms page.    OR fill out an on line application:  https://beascout.scouting.org/list/?zip=92651&program%5B0%5D=pack&program%5B1%5D=scoutsBSA&cubFilter=all&scoutsBSAFilter=all&miles=10#    Select either the Boy Troop or the Girl Troop and follow the instructions in the one line application program.

ADULTS: Men and women are welcome to volunteer.  If you'll be serving as a volunteer, you'll need to complete Youth Protection Training before you submit the adult application.  The training is done on line and should take about 2 hours. It is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America to maintain a culture of Youth Protection awareness and safety at the national, regional, area, council, district, and unit levels.   Please go to the menu on this website and click on Adult Membership and Youth Protection Training for information about how to become an adult volunteer.  Click here for an Adult Application  or you can go to the Scout Forms page.   Once an adult is registered, the adult may take additional training courses to be designated as a trained leader or as an assistant scoutmaster or scoutmaster.  

ANNUAL DUES:  The dues amount for 2020 for youth is $250 (prorated depending on month joined) and the adults dues amount is $50.    The youth dues covers the national and local registration and insurance fees noted on the Scouts BSA application as well as the program costs for our troop.  The adult dues is for national fees, insurance and a background check.    National Scouts BSA has a one time joining fee for youth of $25.   Each Troop has a new youth member package of troop items that costs $115 to cover the cost of a troop duffle bag, T-shirt, neckerchief and slide and Scouts BSA handbook.    The Troop will collect the dues. New members and new adult volunteers have an option to pay these amounts via Pay Pal through our website, check or cash.   We do have scholarships available through our troop or council if a family needs financial assistance.   We do not want financial concerns to prevent a youth member from joining Scouts BSA.  

Join Today! Join us for an outstanding 2020-21 program.   We follow all recommendations for Covid restrictions for small group meetings.  New members can join at anytime.

Youth and Adult volunteers needed for Scottish Fest at the OC Fairgrounds

Posted on Apr 30 2022 - 10:37pm
Scottish Fest is a huge Celtic festival that is held at the Orange County Fairgrounds on the Saturday and Sunday of Memorial weekend. We are having difficulty finding enough volunteers to help with some positions during the weekend. The main area is scanning tickets at the main gate. We are reaching out to churches and youth groups in Orange County to find teens and adults interested in volunteering.

Following up on CA AB506 Law

Posted on Feb 19 2022 - 11:53pm

Thank you to the adults who have notified me about completing the training.   We are at 50% compliance . . . please if you are a registered adult review the announcement from last week about taking the training.   We have to have 100% compliance by Feb 28, 2022.    Pam Jensen, Troop Committee Chair

CA Law: California Child Abuse Mandated Reporter Online Training for Volunteers

Posted on Feb 12 2022 - 11:15pm

For our registered leaders:   When you complete the CA Mandated Youth Protection Training course (see prior week message for details) please send me an email so I can keep track of who has taken the training.   I took the training. It is very straightforward and the questions are not difficult to answer as they are all common sense answers to protect our youth.    Click on the Volunteers module when you get to that part of the sign in for the training.   Two hours is the maximum amount of time to take the course.   It can be done in less time depending on how quickly you answer the questions and if you stop to read all the penal codes (for your reference only but not required reading to pass the course.)    After completing the course, you will receive a certificate of completion in the training module.  Save your certificate to your computer or the electronic device you used for the training.  Go back to the website where you first started into the training course.    At the bottom of that section is where you will find the portal for the Orange County Council.    Upload the certificate file through the portal following the instructions on that website.   You will be asked to give your name, email, phone number, BSA ID, unit type (Troop) and unit number (35.)   Your BSA ID is on your Youth Protection Training certificate or you can find it in your my.scouting.org profile.  So far,  I have two leaders who have told me they took the course this past week.    I hope to have many more emails in the next week about completion of the course.   We have until Feb 28, 2022 for our troops to be in 100% compliance. .    Please find the time to take this very important course.   Pam Jensen, Troop Committee Chair

Delay in processing the 2022 roster

Posted on Feb 12 2022 - 9:50pm

The Orange County Council has not yet processed the rosters I submitted with the rechartering process.     We completed the steps on time, but the new program crashed and did not update council records.      OCBSA representatives are manually adjusting rosters of all units in Orange County.   For this reason, if you are a registered adult leader, you may find a message in your "my scouting" account  that your position has "expired."   That is incorrect information.   It is a result of rosters not yet being updated for 2022.  Our advancement chairs may have difficulty uploading youth member information to the OCBSA records.  Be patient and it will be resolved within the next few weeks.  Pam Jensen, Troop Committee Chair.
