“Although Scouting has changed over the years, the ideals and aims have remained the same: character growth, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Scouting is updated periodically to keep pace with a changing world. It isn't the same as it was on Brownsea Island in 1907, but the ideals are still based on principles that Baden-Powell had been taught as a boy.”...Boy Scouts of America.

Troop 28 has been providing boys and adults of Northeast Tarrant
County with opportunities to learn, grow and experience the best
of Scouting since 1928. The Troop is sponsored by the
First United Methodist Church in Colleyville, TX. Each spring, our Troop
welcomes incoming area Webelos joining our Troop. We are proud
that we have a continuous history of new, experienced and senior
Troop 28, scouts are organized by age, interest or development into smaller units or “Patrols” (about 8 to 12 boys). Each Patrol functions both independently and within the troop. Patrol leadership is elected twice each year and new patrols are assigned a Troop Guide as they are formed. Patrols are responsible for their own campsite, meals and duties while participating in camp activities with the larger group. Through the Patrol method, boys not only develop special friendships but have more opportunities to develop leadership skills.
