Troop 888 Open House
Monday, December 8, 2014   7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Gale Ranch Middle School - Multipurpose Room
6400 Main Branch Rd, San Ramon, CA 94582

Come learn about Scouting with Troop 888 at our open house.  Our open house is intended for:

  • Second year Webelos (Webelos 2) who plan to continue in Scouting
  • 6th grade boys and older who are interested in joining Boy Scouts

For families interested in having their son join the troop, an adult must attend the parent meeting that takes place at the same time.


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.
