Welcome to Scout Troop 28

Proudly Scouting Since 1950

For over sixty years, Troop 28 - boys ages 11-17 - has been building young men of excellent character through Scouting. We stress leadership, personal responsibility, fun, friendship and outdoor adventure.

For boys and girls grades K -5, follow this link to CUB SCOUT PACK 28 - https://www.facebook.com/Pack28Burlingame

We are grateful to be sponsored by Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church, 415 El Camino Real, Burlingame. Our troop meetings are generally held the first and third Monday of each month, from 7 - 8:15 pm.  Click on Contact Us if you're interested in learning more about Troop 28 or would like to attend one of our meetings.

Our troop is Scout-led, and our adult staff is highly trained. Our emphasis is on quality, not quantity, and we achieve good results by having the parents of our Scouts reinforce the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law at home.  Our parent group has high participation in providing the scaffolding for the scouts to build the program on.

Our troop is engaged in camping, hiking, backpacking, river rafting, skiing and service projects. We practice the patrol method, and emphasize creating experiences that are both meaningful and memorable.  Our troop culture practices what we call the straight A’s: attendance, appearance, activity, advancement, accountability, and awards.

We have decided to keep the fees the same as last year, even though there has been another increase in our costs from BSA and Pacific Skyline Council. We request that you submit $325 for annual troop expenses. These dues cover campsite reservations, supplies and equipment, merit badges, food, chartering, and other expenses. You have the following payment options: 

• Deliver a check for $325 made out to “BSA Troop 28” to 1630 Balboa Ave, Burlingame, Ca 94010.

• Send $325 by PayPal to t28treasurer@gmail.com.
