Welcome to Troop 928

Monthly Outings: Troop 928 has a year-round outings program, with an overnight outing every month planned by the Scouts themselves. In addition, the Troop or any of the patrols may plan day hikes or other activities during the year. See the list of outings and dates in our troop calendar. The Troop outings program is designed to provide the Scouts with fun, new skills, and advancement. In addition to meeting requirements for advancing in rank, outings provide opportunities for earning merit badges, including Camping, Hiking, Cooking, Backpacking, Orienteering, Wilderness Survival, and many others.

Weekly Meetings: Troop 928 holds weekly meetings at the White's Chapel United Methodist Church in Southlake, TX. Meetings are every Monday evening from 7:00pm until 8:30pm except during the summer and any special occurrences. Please refer to the Upcoming Events list to the right for more information.

Please make plans for our 2018 Summer Camp at Chris Dobbins Scout Camp, Peaceful Valley, 22799 North Elbert Road Box 97, Elbert, CO 80106 

2018 Summer Camp: June 16 to 24

Nestled in the middle of the Black Forest, Camp Chris Dobbins offers sweeping views of Pike's Peak and the front range of the Rocky Mountains.  Scouts will have a choice of more than 50 merit badges offered here, and will love spending time on the water slides at the outdoor pool, dusting a clay at the Olympic shotgun range, channeling their inner movie star in our Moviemaking program, or pretending to be Indiana Jones at our STEM lodge archeology dig site.  The convenience of meals from our dining hall and sleeping on raised wooden platforms in canvas wall tents will allow Scouts to focus on the only thing that matters: their next outdoor adventure!

Chris Dobbins also provides one of the best staffs in the country, who excel not only in their duties and tasks in interacting with Scouts, but also have been called the staff with the most Scout Spirit in the country at the 2010 National Jamboree.

2018 Adult Leader Training events

Posted on Jan 20 2018 - 7:13pm

TRAINING is an important part of scouting. All troop volunteers must complete Youth Protection Training (YPT) every two years. It's an online video/questionnaire that takes about 20 minutes. In addition to YPT, registered troop leaders must also complete leader-specific training (e.g., Scoutmaster training) and outdoor skills.

CPR & Wilderness First Aid Courses are required for certain camping and trek outings. If you are in need of these important training sessions, the upcoming dates are: 1/20-21, 2/10-11, 3/17-18, 4/7-8, 5/5-6 and 5/26-27. You can register online, or you can use the registration form on the Training-Adult Leaders page of the website.

For more information about specific training requirements check out the Training-Adult Leaders page of the website.  

Merit Badge counselor information

Posted on Apr 8 2017 - 6:58pm

We made a large number of Merit Badge counselor updates. I encourage all Scouts to click on the Merit Badge Resources link to review the current Merit Badge Counselor list in order to determine the current counselor for your area of interest.

Parents we are always looking for volunteers. We would love to add you to the list of Merit Badge Counselors if your vocation or hobby matches a Merit Badge. Our biggest needs are Camping, Hiking, Environmental Science, Orienteering, and then any Merit Badge for which we have either one or no counselors.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the Merit Badge counselor updates.

Thank you,

ASM McRae davidmcrae@troop928.org
