Mission: It is the mission of the boy scouts of america to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the scout oath and law. It is the mission of the orange county council, inc. Bsa to serve an ever increasing number of youth by marshaling the community resources to develop tomorrow's leaders today through adventure and fun activities that instill values and teach life skills.
Programs: Camping - this represents events and activities at schoepe scout reservation at lost valley, oso lake, newport sea base and the irvine ranch outdoor education center. Thousands of youth and adults use our facilities year round while spending time in the outdoors and learning lifelong skills. Spending time in the outdoors is a key tool to delivering the program that allows youth to have positive experiences with adult mentors. Our facilities provide a unique and safe atmosphere for our youth.
activities - this represents a wide variety of activities and events including district events such as camporee, training for adult leaders and adult leader recognition dinner. Additionally, council sponsored events and activities are included such as soccer and scouting programs, commissioner college, venturing activities, exploring activities, council philmont contingent, scouting for food, high adventure training, trailblazer (national youth leadership training), woodbadge, scout-o-rama, eagle scout recognition dinner and the council annual dinner.
day camps - each of our districts conducts a cub scout day camp in their community. More than 2,500 first-fifth graders attend this week-long activity with their parents and leaders which are often held at city park facilities. Scouts are able to play games, make crafts, and learn the safety rules and skills to shoot archery and bb guns. Day camp for many is the highlight of their scouting year. Hundreds of volunteers help make this program possible.
I serve as a Troop Committee & District Committee member and marvel at how this organization continues to make a difference by insuring that the young understand the Scout Law and the Scout Oath which will carry them thru ever more throughout their lives--being witness to history!! :-)

The Orange County Council, Boy Scouts of America instills values, builds leadership skills, creates wonderful memories and provides positive role models and activities for our young people.
I see these characteristics reflected in the enthusiasm of every Scout I meet - especially those who have attained the rank of Eagle Scout.
