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.

Wolfeboro Camp 2019

Located in the high Sierra Nevada Mountains on the shores of the Stanislaus River, a favorite summer camp experience since 1928! Camp Wolfeboro is one of the longest and running scout camps in the Western United States. Founded in 1928, Wolfeboro has continually become a special place to all its Scouts and Scouters. It is the mission of the Wolfeboro staff to facilitate an environment where scouts will be engaged in unique, evolving programs, while building character through the values and methods of scouting in a safe outdoor environment. It is the aim of the Camp Wolfeboro staff to promote a profound reverence for the outdoors. We establish, maintain and improve a rustic and traditional camping environment that can be enjoyed by all ages for many years to follow. The Scout Oath and Scout Law are the core of Camp Wolfeboro. As your scouts participate in the camp programs, we help your units utilize the “patrol method” so the scouts can learn leadership skills. Additionally, we expect your scouts to use the “buddy system” at ALL times.

Environmental Science Merit Badge Application (May 2019)

Mr Charles Kreider, ASM with Troop 888 is organizing Environmental Science Merit Badge class starting soon, and is opening up registrations for Scouts with at least First Class Rank, and able to meet uninterrupted every Saturday morning starting at 9am. While earning the Environmental Science merit badge, Scouts will get a taste of what it is like to be an environmental scientist, making observations and carrying out experiments to investigate the natural world. This merit badge (or sustainability) is one of the required merit badges for Eagle Rank. Please note that if there are more Scouts than places available, every effort will be made to accommodate, but may be done in phases. Loading…

2019 New Scout Hike

We had our 2019 New Scout hike at The Lafayette Reservoir. This Lafayette Reservoir is an open-cut man-made terminal water storage reservoir owned and operated by the East Bay Municipal Utility District. Completed in 1933, it was intended solely as a standby water supply for EBMUD customers. We cannot wait to hear feedback from all our participants, Scouts and Parents alike after their hike. Thank you SPL Sarim, Patrol Leaders Kaelan and Jon for organizing, and thank you Parents for participating.

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.
