Welcome To Troop 888

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 over 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 three decades.  Beyond the core of tradition, we have new Scouts join every year for which we provide a comprehensive rank advancement program. The troop offers many hiking and camping opportunities, service projects, merit badge sessions and other fun activities for the scouts to discover new interests.

Rahul Desai's Eagle Project

Posted on Sep 28 2017 - 5:46pm
Dear Scouts and Parents, 
 
My name is Rahul Desai and I am currently working on my Eagle Project and I need your help to make it a success! 
For my project, I will be refurbishing and relocating four large compost bins for a beneficiary organization in Livermore called Fertile Groundworks. It will be a two-day project on Saturday 10/14 from 8 am to 2:30 pm and Saturday 10/21 from 8 am to 1:30 pm. On the first day, I will need 6 scouts to help disassemble, sand, and paint the four bins and 2 scouts to help prepare the new staging area. On the second day, I will need 6 scouts to help replace the plastic on the bins and reassemble them in the new location. 
Also, if you have any of the following tools and would be willing to donate them to use for my project that would be much appreciated: Staple gun, wire brush, painting tools(roller, brushes, liner), screwdriver, spanner, ratchet & socket kit, screwdrivers, or electric sanding brush.  

Thank you! 

 
Sincerely, 
 
Rahul Desai

Nicholas Ryu's Eagle Project

Posted on Sep 6 2017 - 10:02pm

Hello Troop 888!

My name is Nicholas Ryu. I am working toward my Eagle Rank and have an Eagle Project planned for Saturday, September 30th. My project involves the construction of four bookcases for a second-grade classroom at Rancho Romero Elementary School in Danville  We will be constructing, sanding and finishing the bookcases. The project will be for just that one day. I will need
6-8 scouts, preferably 14 years old or older from 9AM-4:30 PM.  If you can make it for the whole day that would be great, but if you can only come for part of the day, that is fine too. I will provide breakfast, lunch, snacks, and drinks. All safety gear and work gloves will be provided. Make sure to arrive in Class B attire and a water bottle. If you are interested in signing up, please provide your email address so I can send out further updates and important information.

Sincerely,
Nicholas Ryu
