Welcome to Scout Troop 28

Proudly Scouting Since 1950

For over sixty years, Troop 28 has been building young men of excellent character through Scouting. We stress leadership, personal responsibility, fun, friendship and outdoor adventures. 

Youth who have earned the Arrow of Light rank and are at least 10 years old, or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old are welcome to join Troop 28.

For grades K - 5, contact Burlingame or Hillsborough CUB SCOUT Packs. 1) https://www.troopwebhostcs.org/Pack128Burlingame/Index.htm  2) https://www.facebook.com/hillsboroughcubs Pack 58

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.

Everyone is welcome to Family Camping! Bring mom, dad, sisters and brothers! (sorry, no pets)

Memorial Park is a San Mateo County Park less than an hour drive from Burlingame in the Santa Cruz mountains. The campground is surrounded by a beautiful coastal redwood forests with a creek running right through the park. It is a great place to hike, bird watch and camp. 

Please bring the food, camping equipment, and personal items you will need for you and your family. The Scouts will do their own menu planning and will cook together.

A few things to keep in mind: 

- Your family must register on the troop website. https://www.t28burlingame.org/node/4434 

- $6 per vehicle.

- The list of the Scouting "10 Essentials" is always a great reference, so you scout knows what to bring.

- Wear layers. The fog usually rolls in.

Our campsites: Azalea Flats # 2, 4, 6, 15 & 17.

We are SO excited to see you at our annual Welcome Back Family Picnic Sunday August 21st at 4:30 pm. The whole family is invited! We have reserved the bocce courts and BBQ grills in Washington Park. The troop will provide BBQs, charcoal, paper goods and bocce balls. Bring your favorite lawn game - like cornhole or giant connect4!

Each family should bring their own entree for grilling, and a potluck side dish, salad or dessert to share. Please register your attendance on the website so we know how many are coming. It's also helpful if you note what potluck dish you'll bring.

I need 2-3 adults who can help me before and during the event. Please email me at secretarytroop28@gmail.com if you can donate 1 hour of your time.

Thanks, Marcy K. - troop secretary
