Laguna Beach
Scouts BSA Troop 35

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.

Troop Committee Positions Available

Posted on Sep 11 2021 - 10:00pm

The Troop Committee oversees all troop operations necessary to support the Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmasters and Patrol Advisors in the administration of the Troop's program. The Troop 35 Committee oversees the Boy Troop and the Girl Troop. It is a cross between a board of directors and a parent support group!       Any parent interested in finding out about serving on the Troop committee, please contact me.     We currently have a need for a Treasurer for both troops and New Member Coordinator for the Girl Troop and a New Member Coordinator for the Boy Troop.     The Treasurer does not have to be a CPA or accountant.   New Member Coordinator is a new position created by National in the last few years.    This parent will work with the Committee Chair to welcome youth and their families and help them become truly engaged in Scouting.  Committee meetings are the fourth Monday  of each month from 7pm to 8:30pm except July when our troops are usually at summer camp.      Currently meetings are held via Zoom. Committee members must take Youth Protection Training and Troop Committee Training.    Each committee member will take on specific roles to assist in troop activities.      If treasurer or new member coordinator don't seem to be your skill set, we can find something that does fit your interests!   As with the scout program itself, we have many different ways to get involved.   Hope to hear from you soon!   Pam Jensen, Troop Committee Chair.  

Mid August Already!

First, A big thank you to the adults who did all the backstage work for summer camp, the adults who stayed with our youth during the week and the adults who drove to camp one day early for the pick up!    Second, Our fall schedule is shaping up nicely.  We start with the Boomers event of mini golf next Sunday.  Please join us for a end of summer fun event.      Finally, the Troop Committee has a very special request of all of our parents.    Over the summer, Mr. Lindsey, Mr. Jensen, Will Briggs and I have been working with cub scout aged youth to revitalize Pack 35.   We have six members signed up and ready for pack events in the fall.   We will be holding a Pack recruitment night on Sept 28 at Laguna Presbyterian Church.  We need adult volunteers to help us with registration and telling parents about Cub Scouts.    Of course, we need to get the word out that our pack is a Family Pack and we will have dens for boys and girls.     Please let your friends know about this wonderful opportunity.  Please let me or Mr. Lindsey know if you can help with recruiting for our Pack.   YIS = Pam Jensen, Troop Committee Chair

Posted on Apr 24 2021 - 11:56pm

All parents are invited to join the Zoom meeting as we plan our events for 2021-2022.   If any parent from the Cobra patrol is interested in finding out more about the Troop Committee, please join us on Monday.    We also need parents to help with various events during the next 12 months so "Zoom in" to find out how you can help!

Try Out Cub Scouting Sessions Start On Sunday, April 11

Posted on Apr 10 2021 - 8:54pm

Scoutmaster Lindsey will be leading sessions to introduce Cub Scouting to youth in Kindergarten to Fourth Grade.  Pam Jensen will assist.  Other adult leaders are welcome to help or any First Class and above Scouts from either Troop 35 B or G.    The Troops are sponsoring this so we can encourage youth to join Pack 35 and eventually Troop 35 B or G!

Adventure Cards are HERE!

Posted on Apr 3 2021 - 11:56pm

Adventure Cards - formerly known as Camp Cards - formerly known as Scout-o-Rama tickets are here for 2021 savings and fun!  The 2021 dues include one card for each scout.   Some of the scouts in Troop 35 B received them at the Troop meeting this past week.    Over the next two weeks, the cards will be passed out at a meeting or mailed to the scout's home.   The Adventure Card has discounts available at local attractions and stores.  This is a fundraiser for units in the Orange County Council.    Each card is sold for $10 and out Troops receive $5 for every card sold.   We have some extra cards and we hope our scouts will sell them to friends and family members.      Contact Michael Lindsey or Pam Jensen if your child would like to sell the cards to raise funds for our summer camp activities.
