About Troop 888

Troop 888 is a San Ramon based troop, and is one of the most active and respected units in the area. We are dedicated to the development of character, citizenship, physical and mental fitness.

Our program provides the opportunity for leadership development and the learning of scout skills through a variety of activities.

Troop 888 is not an extension of a school or other organization but an entity unto itself. We have an extremely active calendar that involves a comprehensive outdoor program that is fun and challenging. We consistently receive the Quality Unit Award.

Scouting Experience

At Troop 888, we strive to provide a scouting experience filled with variety and diversity. We love scouts that are engaged in the scouting program and journey, not the end result, and we are looking for parents that are engaged with the Troop and help the scouts have a great scouting experience

Sponsoring Organization

The American Legion is the largest and oldest veteran organization in the world with over 3,000,000 members. The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization.

Focusing on service to veterans, servicemembers and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States.

Over the years, the Legion has influenced considerable social change in America, won hundreds of benefits for veterans and produced many important programs for children and youth.
