Scout Nation meets Wednesday mornings at 8:30 AM

in room 63.


  • Support ALL Lake Forest High School Sports
  • Meet and decide which games will make the "Highlighted" games of the week
  • Go to as many games as possible and cheer in a positive way by cheering for LFHS rather than cheering against an opponent.
  • Create different themes & ideas for each game to create interest and fun for fans to participate in


Play it while you sing along!

Cheer, cheer for Lake Forest High
the school whose spirit never dies.
Cheer for the team that has made it famous in the years gone by
and we will cheer for the blue and the gold,
the colors ever wave on high.
So let’s add to the score and win here once more,
come on and fight Lake Forest High.
