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.

ADULTS: Men and women are welcome to volunteer.  If you'll be serving as a volunteer, you'll need to complete Youth ProtectionTraining 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 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.    We have a one time fee of $125 for youth members to cover the cost of a troop duffle bag, T-shirt, neckerchief and slide and Scouts BSA handbook.   The Troop will collect the dues and one time fee after the application is approved. 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 2019-20 program:   New members can join at anytime.

Youth Protection Training:  Since a new YPT course was launched in 2018, many adults will need to update their Youth Protection Training this year (YPT needs to be updated every two years.)    El Camino Real District commissioners encouraged all committee chairs to make sure adults do not have a gap in Youth Protection Training this year.   Please go to your training account in my.scouting.org and find out when you need to renew your youth protection training.    When you take the course, please email me a copy of the completion certificate.   Information about how to take YPT is located in the menu on this website.  

Troop Committee Chair - Happy New Year Message

Posted on Jan 11 2020 - 10:41pm

Activities in 2020 will be very special for Troop 35.  Our Boy Troop will celebrate 75 years of continuous rechartering through our chartered organization, Laguna Presbyterian Church.  We will have special activities during the year to commemorate this achievement.    Our Girl Troop will start on that journey to 75 years as we celebrate their first year as a troop at a special Court of Honor in February.   The Orange County Council will celebrate its 100th anniversary this year.    Special events are planned at the council level during this year.   One event that will go from now until November is the OCC Centennial Service Award.   Any scout providing at least 100 hours of service to community group(s) during the next 10 months can earn this award.    Units can earn a special award based on the number of youth participating in the Centennial Service Award Program.   Adults and youth can email me suggestions as to service projects we can do during this time.   I am also looking for youth and adult volunteers to serve on a committee to arrange and to monitor the service hours earned by the Girl Troop and the Boy Troop. Email me if you would like to help with this award.  I will announce the first service project at the Troop meeting on January 23.    The OCC will also have a campout at the Scout o Rama location on May 8th.  The next day will be the Scout o Rama event.   The overnight camping will be a special treat for all units.  Mark your calendars for this once in a century event.   As for our troop activities during 2020, please make sure you refer to our calendar and RSVP so we know how many are attending.    Upcoming events that need RSVPs:   Ski Weekend in January, Scout Sunday in February and Family Campout in March.    Continue to read through the announcements in this Eblast for information on a scout who needs the support of our scouting community and for a Camporee patch event.   Yours in Scouting, Pam Jensen, Troop Committee Chair  

An Announcement from the El Camino Real District Roundtable about a Fellow Scout

Posted on Jan 11 2020 - 10:13pm

Alaina Vallome of Troop 774 in Laguna Woods was diagnosed with leukemia the last week of December.  She was admitted to CHOC immediately to begin chemotherapy.  Alaina is a very special kid with a passion for Scouts BSA.  It would be incredible if our local Scouting community could help her and her family through this difficult time.   There are several ways Alaina can be supported in her recovery.  One is through a financial donation, another is through blood donations and another is through notes and cards.   Continue reading this announcement for information on how to help Alaina:
