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.

PacSky Camporee April 29-May 1

Posted on Apr 4 2022 - 11:45am

Patrols (5-8 Scouts each) will learn outdoor skills then compete against one another for top scores and bragging rights! Fri-Sun, Apr 29-May 1, 2022

Learn and practice your fire building, first aid, and a host of other wilderness survival skills. Enjoy campfires, games, and field events.

A camporee is many things—camping fun for youth, the thumping of hundreds of feet on the way to an evening campfire, and the blue smoke from fires cooking stew or ham and eggs. It’s the ripple of wind-blown flags in the morning sun. It’s catching the idea of teamwork in a patrol.

Troop Meeting Update for 3/20

Posted on Mar 19 2022 - 3:26pm

We're trying something new for this upcoming troop meeting. Instead of our usual meeting on Monday, we are going to meet at 5pm on Sunday. We are planning a mix of cooking and playing some games. We are estimating for this to go until around 7pm. As we are going to try and cook some food, I would like to know how many people will be able to attend. Please sign up on the troop website here so that we can plan food quantities accordingly.

I hope to see everyone there,
