Troop 728 History
60 Years of Scouting at St. Paul Church!
Originally chartered on February 24, 1958, and 60 years under it's belt, Troop 728 has a long history of scouting and service in the community. Look around St. Paul the Apostle Church, and you’ll see many examples of Eagle projects our boys have done. We take pride that we’ve taken nearly 48 boys to Eagle, 27 in the last 10 years. Many of our Eagles have gone on to earn multiple Eagle Palms. Now we are excited to offer the same program to the girls in Troop 728 Scouts BSA
Troop 728 promotes numerous awards programs with a large variety of camping and merit badge opportunities. Our slogan of "Building Character, One Scout at a Time" is made possible because of our smaller troop size, allowing us to give each boy the individual attention needed to develop and build leadership skills. Troop 728 excels in advancement, merit badge instruction, community service and award recognition.
Our program is strong in outdoor activities and camping. We have adult leaders that love to fish, hike, bike, climb, sail, and even ski (water & snow). We also have individuals with an interest in map reading & orienteering, camp cooking, citizenship, flying, and electronics, just to name a few.
We are excited that in February 2019, we have created our sister Troop 728 for girls to enjoy the program!
