A district is a geographical area of the council determined by the council executive board to help ensure the growth and success of Scouting units within the district’s territory. The district committee, along with a professional advisor called the district executive, is responsible for administering the program, ensuring its financial success, making connections in the community, shepherding established Scouting units, and adhering to national standards, goals, and objectives. 


The Saddleback District serves the areas of Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, and the unincorperated areas of Orange county north of Ortega Highway such as Las Flores, Ladera Ranch and Rancho Mission Viejo.
