The Post 558 Infantry Explorers is a Military Explorer Post located at the (JFTB) Joint Forces Training Base in Los Alamitos, California. We are under the direction of the Learning for Life Explorer program which is affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America..

While the goal of development for these cadets is not unlike the goal of the rest of the Learning for Life Explorer program, the path on which our young leader embark is a different one.  You can read more about the Orange County BSA Learning for Life program here.

The young men and women as cadets will slowly move up in rank and responsibility as they mature and become more exposed to proper military training and leadership. When deemed ready the cadet becomes an Assistant Team Leader. The cadet will continue to receive additional leadership training and given increasing responsibilities.

We are looking for young people between the ages of 14 to 18 years old
who want to belong to Post 558 Infantry Explorers. In our group, we build leaders of tomorrow for our communities.

The Post is also active in community service. In the passed years, during the holiday season, we have collected and distributed  clothing to the elderly. For needy families we have collected food, clothing and toys.

Even though we are a military explorer post, our goal is not to build warriors. We use the discipline and experience of military training to build confidence in young people who will respond to the needs of their community.

Meetings are held Sundays, from 2:00pm-5:00pm
at the Joint Forces Training Base, Los Alamitos
3980 Constitution Ave, Los Alamitos, CA 90720
