Troop Information

Posted on Aug 6 2022 - 4:17pm

The 2022-23 Scouting year is about to begin. Troop 928's first regular scout meeting will be on 8/28. To prepare for that meeting, our youth leaders will need to complete Leadership Training and perform their first Patrol Leaders Council meeting.

The Preliminary Troop Schedule for the first few weeks is:

August 21, 2022 Austin E. (SPL) and his Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders meet at Mr. Sidener's house to develop and rehearse ILST training program. Austin will contact his ASPL's on exact time.

August 22, 2022 Meeting at WCUMC for ILST training 7:00 - 8:30pm. This training is required for all elected youth leaders during the May elections. (The one held prior to the summer.)

August 29, 2022 First "Official" Scout meeting for the entire troop to be held at WCUMC, 7:00-8:30pm.

September 5, 2022 - Labor Day, no troop meeting

September 12, 2022 - regular meetings resume at WCUMC 7:00-8:30pm.

All the leaders are looking forward to starting off the new year. We are excited to hear how everyone did at Summer Camp and High Adventure Camps, and to congratulate those that completed Eagle Projects while we were on summer break.

This year should be an exciting and adventurous year for our scouts. I'm looking forward to it all,

Mr. Sidener

Northern Tier 2023

Northern Tier is one of Scouting’s four High Adventure bases for older scouts aged 14 and above.  It is a week-long canoeing and camping expedition in the boundary waters with Canada.  More information can be found at www.ntier.org

The troop is checking for interest in a Northern Tier High Adventure trek for summer 2023 for a 7-night trek at Ely, Minnesota.  A crew of 8 is needed, 2 of which are adults.  A BSA swim test classification of swimmer is required.

A troop reservation should be made soon if a trek can be formed so that desired dates can be obtained.  A financial installment will also be required with your commitment to go to meet Northern Tier’s payment requirements.

If you are interested in attending please contact Kevin O’Donnell.  kevinodonnell@troop928.org or

Lewisville Parks & Recreation Merit badge classes

Posted on Apr 14 2022 - 11:06pm

The Lewisville Parks & Recreation is offering numerous Merit badges.  See below of the classes being offered.  You can sign up on line through the link provided below.

LLELA offers opportunities to help Scouts work on skills and knowledge related to merit badges. While these programs are designed to meet badge requirements, members of other youth organizations or children simply interested in these topics are welcome to enroll. It is usually impossible to fulfill all of the requirements of most badges in only a few hours, but LLELA staff will include as much as possible in a series of hands-on, engaging activities

*Most workshop fees range from $15-25 per person ($95 for 2 day Kayak program). Parents dropping off or picking up a Scout for these activities may enter LLELA free of charge for this purpose.

Please include your phone number when registering so that you can receive weather updates if necessary. Register online or by calling 972.219.3550.

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 )
