Glencoe’s Troop 28 is a welcoming troop. We understand that today’s scouts have much more on their plate than “just” scouting and are welcome scouts from those who only come on occasional campouts and hikes because they love outdoor adventure to those who are aspiring to earn every merit badge or the prestigious Eagle rank. The Troop meets weekly in the evening at Glencoe’s St. Elisabeth’s church (or every other week by Zoom when social distancing restricts in-person gatherings). The troop typically sponsors additional activities including campouts and community service opportunities, approximately once a month through the school year. Scouts are encouraged to attend all meetings and events but are welcome to participate as much or as little as they are able.
Troop 28 welcomes boys aged 10-17, in grades 5 through 12 from Glencoe and surrounding communities. We have had scouts from area schools including Glencoe’s Central School, New Trier High School, North Shore Country Day, Loyola Academy, Solomon Schechter Day School, and Sacred Heart Academy. Prospective scouts do not need to have participated in Cub Scouts to join Troop 28 and are encouraged to join any time throughout the year.
If you are ready to join, please visit our new scout checklist for information on registration, dues, and other details.
We look forward to welcoming you to Troop 28!
