Troop 728

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Boy Scout Troop 728 Home Page. The mission of Troop 728, and that of the Boy Scouts of America, is to prepare young boys to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. We strive to turn the boys of today into the men and leaders of tomorrow. Our troop is completely boy-run, as are all of our events. All of our Youth Leaders are selected by their peers, and experience intensive training designed by the Boy Scouts of America.


Troop 728 developed and maintains this website for a variety of reasons including:

  • Keeping our Scouts and Scouting families informed. The Internet provides the fastest way to communicate schedule changes, and late breaking news.
  • Sharing our adventures with family, friends and the Scouting community.
  • Setting our community and the world know about our Troop, its activities and objectives.
  • Scouting offers something for our community's youth and gives back to the community through service projects. Most people aren't aware of this and we hope to add yet another way of communicating this through the Internet. And hey, we may even get lucky and recruit some new Scouts to our Troop!
