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.

Special Instructions for Parents

  • Please escort your Scouts to and from the meeting room.  We have been asked by the Church to not have Scouts going from the parking area to the Meeting without adults escorting them.  Also we must have two leaders present with Scouts so if there is only one adult present please wait until a second leader has come.  Thank you for your support and assistance.


Troop 228 T-Shirts and Sweatshirts
  • Troop T-shirts and sweatshirts (the “activity uniform”) are worn after arriving at outings and at summer camps.
  • Contact Joanna Holcombe for pricing and to place your order.
  • Women’s T-shirts are also available for order.  Cost will be $16.50.  Sizes run small so order 1 size larger.
Please note that Troop 228 T-Shirts are different than Camp T-Shirts, which the scouts can order when they go to summer camps.
