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

Click on the links to view campout information (you must be loged in to open these): Schedule of events, Climbing Presentation, Enchanted Rock State Park map

We will be staying in the “Sponsored Youth Group” campsite in the Northeast corner of the park.  The hike to the campsite is ~1.7 miles one way.  Since it is a primitive campsite, all participants will be required to hike in their water, food, shelter, & clothing.  All meals will be “backpacking meals” cooked over a “backpacking stove” which will meet requirement #7 of the Cooking merit badge.

I will need four (4) Scouts to volunteer to present/teach/train the following topics on Monday, 6 OCT, in anticipation of the campout.  The Scout presenting/teaching Climbing Equipment should have already earned the merit badge:

Climbing First Aid
Climbing Equipment
Climbing Types, Classifications & Hazards
Outdoor Code / Leave No Trace

Contact Mr. Patterson if you have question concerning this event.
