First GoToMeeting? Let’s do a quick system check:
We would love to have you join us at the OCBSA Blood Drive on Saturday, November 3 at the Council Offices in Santa Ana.
We are looking for 50 people to donate blood and would love to have your help.
Plus, we should have cookies there after you donate.
Get your new and veteran leaders trained before the program year starts. Join the whole West Service Area (Del Mar, Pacifica, El Capitan, and Orange Frontier) on Saturday, August 4, to get Youth Protection Training and position specific training completed in one shot, while having fun and networking with other leaders from the service area.
We know the time is short, so sign up now by clicking here. Every person who attends needs to register individually. Register for the courses that you need. If you’ve taken YPT after 2/1/2018 you don’t need to take it again (unless you want to).

In case you haven’t heard yet, the BSA has announced the new name of the Boy Scout program starting in February 2019. It will be called “Scouts BSA.”
We are encouraged to use the “Scout Me In” campaign in any flyers and marketing materials for the summer and fall. This new campaign shifts the perspective by showing what it’s like to be a Scout from a kid’s point of view. Instead of simply showing Scouts participating in activities, the campaign brings the young viewer into the middle of the action – from fishing, biking and canoeing to launching rockets and making slime – where they get even closer to the experiences that Scouting brings to life.
The Scout Me In campaign celebrates the BSA’s expansion to serve families and welcome girls and boys into Scouting in communities across the country. It reinforces that the mission and core values in the Scout Oath and Scout Law are welcoming, inclusive and foundational for both young men and women. Since announcing the BSA’s historic decision to welcome girls into Scouting, more than 3,000 girls across the nation have already enrolled in the BSA’s Early Adopter Program and are participating in Cub Scouts ahead of the full launch later this year.
For more information about this new campaign and the new program name, visit the Scouting Newsroom.
We will be having a Camporee Committee meeting next Thursday, May 9 at 7:00 PM. It will be held at Roundtable. You may want to bring your Senior Patrol Leader and your Scoutmaster (or other designees to represent your Troop). We will discuss the survey results and begin thinking about next year.
