Leadership

Scout Leadership is making a comeback at Troop 28. That means the scouts play an active role in everything from running the weekly meetings, to planning campouts, and teaching newer scouts key life skills. Through this, scouts learn important skills that serve them well on the path to Eagle and in life.

Adventure

Outdoor and active adventures are a core part of scouting. In just the last few years, Troop 28 scouts have skiied at Cascade Mountain, luged at Muskegon Winter Snow Complex, skated at the Pettit Center in Milwaukee, slept on TWO submarines, braved a spring ice storm at Camp Crown, gone whitewater rafting and sailing at Camp Ma-ka-ja-wan in Northern Wisconsin, biked in Kettle Moraine, climbed at Devil’s Lake, gone paddleboarding at Van Buren State Park, explored Warren Dunes, and hiked at Starved Rock. There's always something in the works for Troop 28!

Camaraderie

Whether it's hiking through the woods, rappelling down a cliff, serving spaghetti to the community, participating in a scout First Aid Meet, making s'mores around a campfire, or staying up late to talk with a tent-mate, there are plenty of opportunities to make friends and have fun with Troop 28.

Community

Glencoe Troop 28 traces its heritage back to 1911 and is one of the oldest Boy Scout troops in the country. Troop members have been active in the community, participating in the annual July 4th parade and Veterans' Day ceremony; raising money for New Trier Township Food Pantry; and leading Eagle projects to benefit organizations including the Little House of Glencoe.
