Welcome to the Troop 888 website!

Troop 888 is a Boy Scouts of America Troop in San Ramon, CA, in the Mt. Diablo-Silverado Council. We are chartered by The American Legion Post #246 in Danville. Our troop strives to meet the scouting principals of being boy-run and teaching the fundamentals of leadership, community service, outdoor skills, and activities that would otherwise be unavailable to boys outside of the Scouting program.

We meet Monday evenings at 7:00 at Gale Ranch Middle School where we plan outings, work on merit badges and rank advancement, and work together toward the advancement of the young men in our troop. As a troop of nearly 100 Scouts, we have a great number of outings and opportunities - often several per month - allowing us to be a troop for everyone. We have many great traditions with our annual outings: kayaking, snow camping, white-water rafting, and attending summer scout camp at Wolfeboro in Bear Valley, CA. We have been going to Wolfeboro for more than two decades.  Beyond the core of tradition, we have new Scouts join every year for which we provide a comprehensive rank advancement program during their first year. The troop offers many hiking and camping opportunities, service projects, merit badge sessions and other fun activities for the scouts to discover new interests.

Adult Involvement in Troop 888

Posted on Mar 15 2012 - 12:54am

As Troop 888 grows and continues to offer a rich program for our Scouts, this creates more opportunities for the parents of Troop 888 to get involved. We are asking that each family has an adult member participate in the Troop in some capacity. How can you participate? There are several ways depending on how much you want to be involved. It could be as simple as helping with leading an outing, being a merit badge counselor, or becoming a member on the Troop Committee or even becoming a uniformed Leader. This is a wonderful way to participate in unique experiences that Boy Scouts offers and you may even learn a new skill or take up a new hobby along with your son. No matter how you participate, it will make a difference.

Troop 888 Needs Parents for Merit Badge Counselors

Posted on Feb 17 2012 - 3:33pm

Ever thought about helping our Scouts learn and grow by being a Merit Badge Counselor? It is actually pretty easy to become a Merit Badge Counselor with registering, doing an online course in Youth Protection Training, counselor orientation and coordinating with our Merit Badge Coordinator and Advancement Chair along with the Leaders and Scouts in the Troop. Our troop has grown alot and we need your help. Every family needs to pitch in with at least one parent as a Merit Badge Counselor or committee member. Troop 888 is organizing training for Merit Badge Counselor to be held at one of the parent meetings.
