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.

Summer Camp 2018 - Chris Dobbins Scout Camp

Posted on Mar 31 2018 - 3:53pm

Summer Camp sign-up extended to April 23rd! 

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.

On the way to Chris Dobbins, we are in the process of trying to add a stop at the nearby Air Force Academy with a private tour and/or a service in the chapel (provided the chapel is not under renovation during this time). We are exploring lodging options with both the Air Force Academy and Peterson Air Force Base as a back up plan.

Overall Summer Camp cost is estimated to be approximately $675/Scout ($385 Camp Cost + $290 Transportation/In transit Costs) assuming we fill the bus. If required, the cost of the overnight Air Force Academy stay will be added.

Please fill let Mr. Van Noy which Merit Badges you wish to take.

Some merit badges (crafts) have nominal costs $10 to $20 for supplies.

There will be an opportunity for White Water Rafting on the Arkansas River.  In 2017, the cost was $80 per attendee with no age limits.

Contact Mr. Van Noy if you have any questions about summer camp.  sjvannoy@troop928.org
