Troop 28 is one of the oldest Boy Scout troops in the country and in the Chicago area. Goals of Scouting will tell you more about Boy Scouting.
The Troop has been active since the 1920s. It is sponsored by St. Elisabeth’s Episcopal Church in Glencoe, but is entirely non-denominational.
Troop 28 has many active Scouts ranging from 11 to 17 years of age, from Tenderfoot to Eagle, with a wide variety of interests and talents. Troop 23’s Goals has more information about our objectives.
Scouting is an adventure—sometimes quite an adventure! The stereotype many people have of Scouts is one of saving lives while hiking in the great outdoors. Troop 28 Scouts have done their share of trekking… and not long ago were called on to rescue some hikers who had had an accident in Starved Rock State Park.
