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.

Adult Training Opportunities:

Posted on Feb 6 2016 - 9:44pm

Troop 928 requires scouts to complete the National Youth Leadership Training/Twin Arrows course prior to being eligible to run for Senior Patrol Leader. The curriculum of this course teaches youth to better communicate, problem solve, team build, plan activities and become effective leaders for their units. As adult leaders, wouldn’t it be great to know what the youth have been taught to help mentor them in their roles? 

Wood Badge is just that course. It is one of the premier adult leader training courses offered in Scouting. The information and tools provided not only benefit participants to become better leaders for their youth; the skills are very applicable in day-to day roles and work life. In fact, many companies will count Wood Badge as approved training or Continuing Education Units. 

Please consider attending the upcoming spring course at Camp Tahuaya. The course dates are 1st Weekend: Friday, March 18th to Sunday, March 20th and 2nd Weekend: Friday, April 8th to Sunday, April 10th. If those dates don’t fit with your schedule, there are three additional courses offered this year, a week-long course at Sid Richardson in July, a week-long course at Philmont in September, and a split weekend course at Sid Richardson in October.

Wilderness and Urban Survival campout, 19-21 February 2016

Posted on Feb 4 2016 - 12:47pm

CAMPOUT LOCATION SUBJECT TO CHANGE BASED ON RIVER LEVEL – WE WILL NOT ATTEND THE GLEN ROSE RANCH WITH DANGEROUS WATER LEVELS. NO EXCEPTIONS. WE HAVE TWO ALTERNATE SITES THAT YOUR PLC WILL SELECT IF NEEDED.

For those scouts taking the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge, “Equipping for Wilderness Survival” presentation is attached for reference. This reference should be used as you build your Scouting Daypack & Backpack

You should be able to SURVIVE with the contents in your Daypack (e.g. Water, First Aid kit, Fire Starting, Signal panel, Compass), you should ALWAYS carry one. Your backpack is intended to serve as a means by which you carry your “comfort items” (e.g. tent, sleeping bag, change of clothes, personal hygiene kit (I know most of y’all don’t know what that is), etc.

Since the scenario for the WS campout is based upon you getting lost while on a hike, I strongly suggest you begin building your daypack using the attached reference as a guide for what to purchase.

We will be structuring the campout to offer a “basic Wilderness Survival” and “advanced Urban Survival” course; only those Scouts who have already earned the WS MB previously will be permitted to participate in the “advanced Urban Survival” course. Older Scouts planning to attend the advanced course must sign up to be an Instructor or Assistant Instructor for one of the following:

Northern Tier High Adventure Base for canoe treks in Summer 2017

Posted on Feb 3 2016 - 9:31pm

We have been awarded two crews to attend Northern Tier High Adventure Base for canoe treks in Summer 2017! In recent years, we have had several Scouts from the troop attend Northern Tier canoe treks and they all come back having had a great time!

Northern Tier offers wilderness canoeing expeditions in Northern Minnesota, Northwestern Ontario and Northeastern Manitoba through three canoe bases (our treks will originate from, and return to, the ELY, MN base). A highly trained staff member, called an Interpreter, accompanies all crews on their trek. Particulars of the trip are outlined below. Additional information about this fantastic BSA facility can be obtained at their website (www.ntier.org) or from those who have already attended.

The cost of the trek is expected to be approximately $1,200 per participant, including airfare. A deposit of $200 will be required by February 1st at which time a binding commitment is required. If you are interested in attending, please email Tom Zelewski (tomz@troop928.org )  as soon as possible. We will establish the roster and waiting list based on emails in order received, subject to receipt of deposit and commitment forms by the deadline. Priority will be given to Scouts with parents also attending (for the first three adults for each crew). We have spots for up to 16 participants (Scouts and adults). We must have at least 2 adults attending per crew. All adults attending must register as BSA leaders and must take Youth Protection Training. Wilderness First Aid training is also required.

We need a volunteer to be the lead adult advisor for the treks. This person will assume responsibility going forward for the planning and logistics of the trip.
