To provide a safe, supportive and participatory environment that enables the scout’s learning of new skills, personal growth, character development, and leadership development, all within a structured outdoor program.

Do you have your Adventure Cards?

Posted by nsouza on Apr 14 2021 - 5:00pm

Adventure cards are here and it's time to start selling! Each card is $10 and our troop requires each scout family to sell a minimum of 5 cards ($50). Each scout who sells more than the minimum can earn money toward future scouting activities so it's a great way to earn money! Please go to the online store via the Troop Website and pay for your cards, after which you can pick them up from me. I will distribute the cards at meetings whenever possible.

This year the cards feature coupons from Smart and Final, Big 5 Sporting Goods, Great Clips, Papa John's, Dave and Buster's, Medieval Times, Aquarium of the Pacific and many more. Any questions, contact Leanne Spurgiasz at leanne@conciseusa.com.

Sign up for your cleaning shift at the Elk's Lodge

Posted by nsouza on Mar 15 2021 - 2:39pm

Scouts, please sign up for a cleaning shift at the Elk's Lodge. Remember, as a service to the Mission Viejo Elk's Lodge for allowing us to use their patio for our meetings, we need 2-4 scouts each Friday at 4:00-5:00 p.m. to clean up the patio area before their Friday night dinner meeting. Cleaning entails using an electric leaf blower to blow leaves and debris off the patio, wiping down the tables and chairs, and setting up placecards at the tables. All scouts are expected to take a turn at least once a quarter, if not more. Please click on the Sign-up Genius link below to sign up for your shift. 


Merit Badge Counselors needed

Posted by nsouza on Nov 24 2020 - 7:02pm

Parents, we could use some additional merit badge counselors for the scouts in our troop. You don't need any special expertise, just an interest and basic knowledge of the merit badge. You'll also need to fill out some paperwork and take some online training, but that only helps you know what you're doing! Attached is a list of merit badges that have no counselor in our troop. If any of these appeal to you, and you'd like to help us out, please contact Nancy Souza at nancysuesouza@gmail.com. 

Merit badge work is available from home!

Scouts- if you are interested in completing any of the merit badges listed on this link while you are at home please email me with your name, the badge name and  the date you started so I can log it for the blue card issuance. I will give out blue cards the next time we meet next. As of 3-28 i have 3 scouts how have emailed me to add to my list.
