Whitsett Summer Camp!

July 23 – 29, 2017
camp-whitsettOur week at Camp Whitsett summer camp in the Sequoias has been confirmed for July 23 – 29, 2017. The approximate cost will be $380/scout. We have reserved spots for 15 Scouts, and all of those spots have been claimed.
However, we may be able to add additional Scouts to the roster, so if your Scout wants to attend and you haven’t already secured your spot with the $100 deposit, please drop off a check for $100 in the bin on my front porch. Please understand that the camp may sell out before we receive your check, in which case it will be returned to 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.
