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.

Camp Royaneh July 3-9

Posted on May 11 2022 - 2:53pm

2022 Camp details (directions/schedules/packing lists/etc) have been uploaded to the troop website. https://www.t28burlingame.org/taxonomy/term/1063 .

Camp Royaneh opened in 1925. It has become a special place for Scouts of all ages. The mission of Camp is to make sure scouts are engaged in unique programs, while building character through a safe outdoor environment. The goal of Camp is to promote a love for the outdoors. 

The camp is rich in wildlife. You will be playing and sleeping amongst the majestic, mature Redwoods. The temperate climate spells adventure for new scouts as well as seasoned ones that like to test their skills. It's only 2 hours from Burlingame.

Popular activities include: hike, backpack, ride horses, rock climb, swim and may even participate in a rodeo - all in one week. Scouts can try their hand at black powder musket firing, rappelling, archery and even orienteering.
