Troop 818 is a Scout led troop which aims to develop the leaders of tomorrow who are guided by the values of Scouting: God, Country, Family and Self. We are chartered by Serra Catholic School located in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. We welcome Scouts from all faiths. We hold troop meetings the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month at 7:00 pm in Serra Catholic School's Student Activities Center (the gym). Our troop has over 75 registered Scouts from age 11 through age 17. Troop 818 is run by the Patrol Leaders Council under the leadership of the Senior Patrol Leader and guidance of the Scoutmaster. The troop schedules one or two events each month, often consisting of campouts, backpacking trips, community service projects, and activities such as hiking, swimming, cycling, sporting activities, among many others.
