Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser

Order gourmet Spaghetti Dinner Meal Kits for pick up or delivery in Glencoe and help support New Trier Food Pantry, Familiy Service of Glencoe, and Troop 28!

Leadership

Troop-28 is a scout-led troop. That means the scouts run the weekly meetings, plan campouts and other adventures, and teach newer scouts key life skills. Through this, scouts learn important skills that serve them well on the path to Eagle and in life.

Adventure

Outdoor and active adventures are a core part of scouting. In just the last few years, Troop 28 scouts have gone skiing, luging, skating, mountain biking, ziplining, sailing, paddleboarding, and whitewater rafting. Our scouts have slept on TWO submarines, braved a spring ice storm, and visited BSA summer camps in Wisconsin and West Virginia. There's always something in the works for Troop 28!

Camaraderie

Whether it's hiking through the woods, rappelling down a cliff, serving spaghetti to the community, participating in a scout First Aid Meet, making s'mores around a campfire, or staying up late to talk with a tent-mate, there are plenty of opportunities to make friends and have fun with Troop 28.

Community

Glencoe Troop 28 traces its heritage back to 1911 and is one of the oldest Boy Scout troops in the country. Troop members have been active in the community, participating in the annual July 4th parade and Veterans' Day ceremony; raising money for New Trier Township Food Pantry; and leading Eagle projects to benefit organizations including the Little House of Glencoe.
