Eagle Scouts, Eagle Projects, & Eagle Court of Honor

Congratulations to our newest Eagle Scout, Jordan Fishburn, who passed his Eagle Board of Review on April 11th! Well Done! We are proud of you!

New Troop 228 Shutterfly Account 

We have set up a Troop Shutterfly account in an effort to provide you with pictures taken during our outing and camps.  You’ll need to log in and create an account for yourself (if you don’t have one already).

Here’s the link:  https://boyscoutsofamericatroop228.shutterfly.com/.  Feel free to check out the various albums we’ve added so far, and add pictures taken during the events if you have them.  More albums from previous outings and events will be added soon, so keep checking in!

Medical Consent Forms
  • All scouts and adults must have a current annual medical consent form on file with the troop prior to attending any outing or summer camp.
  • Click here to get the updated form.

Youth Protection Program

We strongly encourage all parents to read BSA’s information on Youth Protection and take the 20 minute Youth Protection Training (you don’t have to be an adult leader to take the training).  Links to Youth Protection are provided below.  It is the responsibility of all parents and adult leaders to review and understand the principles of Youth Protection, and most importantly, exercise those principles at all times when scouts are present.
Get information on Youth Protection here.
Take “Youth Protection” training here.
