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.

Troop 928, Parents Needed!!!

Posted on Feb 3 2019 - 1:46pm


We need your help! We have a few roles that need to be filled:

1) Summer Camp Committee - Tom Palmersheim and I need a team. Duties: Sign up scouts for merit badge classes, plan the transportation, paper work, etc

2) Assistant Scout Masters - We have very few adults taking on the ASM role who's scouts are 1st or 2nd year. Come enjoy scouting with your scout!

3) Board of Review - We need a group of parents willing to come to meetings and review scouts for their rank advancement. This is one of the easiest ways to support the troop!

Please contact Paige Kester if you are willing to help!

Scouts, are you ready for a great week of swimming, sailing, hiking, rock climbing, rifles/shotguns/bows, skiing, horses, fishing, and campfires?! We have secured the best week of the summer at Camp Hale - June 9th thru June 15th. Come beat the heat!

Who: We are limited to 45 scouts. These spots will go fast!
When: June 9th-15th
Where: Camp Hale (1 Camp Tom Hale, 74571 Talihina, OK) - Only 3.5 hrs away
Cost: $300-$400 will be the likely range after transportation, t-shirts, merit badge choices and other considerations are determined. You pay nothing today to reserve your spot! We will ask for progress payments in February, March, and April.
Average temperatures for that week: High 87, Low 63 (Perfect!)

Parents - We encourage you to sign up and come to camp with your scout. It is a great week to spend in the outdoors. There is plenty to do. We need a minimum of 5 but will take all we can get.

Did I mention: Camp Hale has one of the best aquatics programs in BSA. The lake is huge, they have big inflatables including a Scout-launcher!

The Troop will be camping at Camp Constantine on March 1-3. The theme of the campout is shooting Sports.

The firearms and ammunition will be provided.  No personnel firearms or ammunition allowed.  The cost is $70 per Scout, $30 per adult.

Merit Badge counselor information

Posted on Nov 10 2018 - 4:41pm

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 )
