Join Troop 728 Boys!
In the Scout program, scouts learn through the experiences of camping, hiking, building projects, and community service. Scouting fosters self-esteem, a sense of value and belonging, a sense of accountability, and teamwork.
The program strengthens scouts mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually. The skills they learn in Scouting help them overcome obstacles and challenges with courage and character throughout their lives.
Give your scout a valuable gift by encouraging him to join scouts Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.
