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.

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.
  • Hats – We are working on getting hats for the troop! Be on the look out for emails relating to this.
Please note that Troop 228 T-Shirts are different than Camp T-Shirts, which the scouts can order when they go to summer camps.
