Welcome to Pack 918!


Cub Scout Pack 918 is sponsored by Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California. Our goal is to develop Godly young men of great character with a heart of service for others and knowledge and respect for the outdoors.

The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for its youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA has developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies, and provides parents and leaders the following online and print resources for all scouting programs.

Pinewood Derby - MANDATORY Weigh In

Posted on Feb 26 2020 - 11:09pm

Please note that the MANDATORY Weigh-In is NEXT week... Wed 3/4 & Thurs 3/5 nights from 6PM-8PM.

Scouts MUST turn in their car or they will not be able to race on Saturday.   

Please make sure the cars are COMPLETE and ready to race when you bring them, as NO changes will be allowed after this date and they will be held by the Race Committee until race day. Unfortunately, if any car isn't in compliance with the rules during the weigh-in process, you and your scout will need to correct the car and get it turned in prior to 8pm that night. 

Attached are the official rules for this year, which have not changed since last year. As your scouts finish up their vehicles, please pay careful attention to the specifications listed. Any vehicles that do not comply with these specifications will not pass pre-race inspection and may not be allowed to race.

EMERALD BAY Scout Camp - Cub Adventure Weekend 3/13-15

Posted on Feb 26 2020 - 11:08pm

For those familes who have registered for our Cub Scout Adventure at Camp Emerald Bay on Catalina Island, you will be receiving more information soon, but I wanted you know a few things in preparation for our trip...

We will be leaving on a boat from Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach to catch our charter boat directly to camp.

Boarding time is 6pm sharp on Friday. Please attempt to get to the dock by 5:30pm.

The dock is located right next to the Aquarium of the Pacific and the best address to use in your map application is that of the aquarium. There is a small booth and ramp immediately to the left of the Aquarium where participants should congregate. On Sunday plan to return to the mainland around 11am at the same location.

I've attached a "What to Bring to Camp" list to also aid you in preparation. Feel free to reach out to Cubmaster Rob with any questions.
