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 $115.   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.

A reminder for Troop dues for 2021

Posted on Nov 14 2020 - 10:35pm

Emails are being sent out with the "invoice" for your scout in regard to Troop dues for 2021.   The email has instructions as to how to pay by check or how to pay on line.  If there will be a delay in paying, please let the scoutmaster or committee chair know as soon as possible.  Thank you for allowing your son or daughter to be a part of Scouts BSA.

Youth Dues and Adult Dues for 2021

Posted on Oct 10 2020 - 11:19pm

2020 - what a year!      Despite all the setbacks from emergency Covid restrictions, our troops have continued to move forward with our programs.   Our adult and youth leaders have been very innovative and dedicated to continuing our programs.  Thank you to our parents for being flexible and allowing your precious sons and daughters to be a part of our Boy Troop and our Girl Troop.    It is now rechartering time, which means, I start asking for payment of dues for the 2021 program year.   The Troop Committee met at the end of September and we decided not to increase our dues over the amount we set for 2020.  Therefore, dues for 2021 will continue to be $250 for the calendar year 2021 for Youth members and $50 for Registered Adults.   

Please Review Addresses and Phone Numbers on our Troop Roster

Posted on Oct 10 2020 - 10:21pm

As mentioned last week, it is rechartering time.     I need to report address, emails or phone number changes to OCBSA.   Please review the information in the Troop roster.  Go to the view "Scouts with Parents" and make sure the names, addresses, emails and phone numbers are up to date.  If you have any changes or additions, please email the new information to me as soon as possible.      Yours in Scouting, Pam Jensen

Roundtable Report from October 8

Posted on Oct 10 2020 - 10:14pm

The Monthly Meeting of El Camino Real District Leaders and interested parents was held via Zoom on Thursday, Oct 10.     The lead program item was about youth protection procedures for Zoom and other on line programs, social media and texting.    Youth are reminded to copy a parent or another leader on any text or email that the youth is sending to an adult leader.  There must be two adults as recipients of any email or text by a youth.  Parents are asked to make sure the scout follows these rules.   Leaders will return a message to a parent with a copy to the youth if a youth forgets to add another adult.     Participants also recommended blocking the chat function of zoom during meetings so youth do not send inappropriate messages or to have an adult monitor the chat and shut it down if a problem occurs with comments.    As for in person meetings, units were told about the OCBSA Covid safety measures on the OCBSA website.     Other topics discussed with the Camporall on Oct 17, 18 (Boy Troop will be a participant) and the National Day of Service on November 7.  (Our Troops will be at Joshua Tree Campout.   See separate announcement about our Troops' Day of Service on October 3.)    

IMPORTANT information for adults registered with either Troop

Posted on Oct 3 2020 - 10:38pm

October means we start to get ready to recharter our unit with the Scouts BSA program.     That means we make sure registered adults have completed proper training to work with or to be present around our youth members in both troops.   The key training program is the Scouts BSA Youth Protection Training.   This is a training program that must be taken every two years.   Two new training courses have been added to the mandatory courses for all registered adults who interact with our youth members.    Hazardous Weather Training previously was recommended only for a leader specific position such as ASM or SM.    Starting in January 2021, it will be required for all registered adults.   The other course is Committee Member Training to classify every registered adult as at least a Committee Member.  If an adult is already registered as an ASM or a SM, that adult does not have to take the Committee Member Training.   This does not mean that every registered adult must attend Troop Committee meetings since they will be registered as a Committee Member.  Instead, Committee Member Training is now mandatory so that adults who interact with youth understand the troop structure and youth led policies.
