To see a list of our planned outings and summer trips, check out the Upcoming Events section on the right, or visit our troop calendar.

Weekly Meetings: Troop 928 holds weekly meetings at White's Chapel United Methodist Church in Southlake, TX. Meetings are Mondays from 7:00pm-8:30pm, throughout the school year. Please refer to the Upcoming Events to the right for meeting dates.

Pathfinder District Camporee

Posted on Mar 1 2024 - 9:33pm

What:  Pathfinder District Camporee

Where:  Sid Richardson Scout Ranch

Cost:  $30, includes $15 fee paid to Longhorn Council

The Annual Pathfinder District Camporee is where all Troops and Crews come together to make new friends, compete in challenging activities, take part in an awesome campfire program and see new Order of Arrow candidates being "tapped out".  This year the theme is Scout Olympics in honor of the 2024 World Olympics.  Lots of games, songs and surprises wait for those who attend.  

We will depart Friday evening, traveling to Sid Richardson as quickly as possible.  We would like to get our tents set up and have a cracker barrel by 8:00 pm, so please eat dinner before meeting at the church for departure. 

Saturday we will attend all day events and competitions after setting up our Gateway that leads into our campsite.  This year we will use scouts to drive stakes into the ground so Mr. Stage doesn't hit the only water pipe within 600 acres or our campsite, ultimately flooding it during our campsite inspection.

Summit Bechtel 2025

Posted on Dec 17 2023 - 5:43am

The troop is planning to have a crew attend Summit Bechtel Reserve High Adventure in Glen Jean, West Virginia in summer 2025.  Participants must be age 14 by date of departure (June or July 2025).

Summit Bechtel offers a few different trip types:  white water rafting, ATV, or backpacking with one rafting day.  The Scouts attending will decide which of these trips the crew will do.  White water & backpacking trips are ~$1,150 each and ATV is $1,700 each.  This is the cost to Summit Bechtel for the program, travel to/from WV and incidentals are additional participant expenses.

Additional information can be found here:  https://www.summitbsa.org/programs/national-high-adventure-base/high-adventure-overview/

Crew sizes vary by trip type but range from 8 to 12 participants.

High adventure registrations for summer 2025 will open on January 18, 2024 so we need to begin planning for it now.  A financial commitment will be needed to hold your reservation as the first installment payment to Summit Bechtel is due by 3/1/2024.

I am told that Troop 928 has never attended Summit Bechtel, so this will be the troop’s inaugural crew to attend Summit Bechtel!

Please contact Kevin O’Donnell if interested (or with questions). kevinodonnell@troop928.org 

Adult Volunteer Opportunities

Posted on Feb 27 2023 - 10:58am

Our Troop is grateful for every volunteer. For without them, our Scouts would not be as successful. We can use more volunteer help. You can work directly with the troop as an Assistant Scout Master or Merit Badge Counselor or help direct the Troop’s future on the Troop Committee. Don’t worry. We’ll find you a job. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact the Troop Committee Chair or Scoutmaster.

Troop Committee Member: The committee consists of parent volunteers who fulfill various roles on the committee. Responsible for conducting the business of the Troop, setting policy, and helping the Scoutmaster and Scouts with the outdoor program and other planned activities. The committee also has the responsibility to provide adults for Boards of Review. 

  • Assistant Scoutmaster: Assists the Scoutmaster in delivering the Troop program. Commitment depends on activity. ASMs can be Patrol Advisers, Assistant Patrol Advisers, Trainers, and Program Advisers.
  • Merit Badge Counselor: The Merit Badge Counselor is a key player in the Boy Scout advancement program. Whatever your area of expertise or interest, you can play a vital role in stirring a Scouts curiosity about a particular topic.

Merit Badge counselor information

Posted on Mar 2 2022 - 9:35pm

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. (click on "read more" to see name and email FF )
