History of Troop 28

Troop 28, B.S.A. was first chartered in May of 1936. The troop has had the same dedicated sponsor since the beginning and we continue to meet at Stanley Congretational Church, Fairmount Avenue and Oliver Street, every Monday evening at 7:00pm. Since our beginnings, the Troop has provided to the youth of Chatham the special opportunities that Scouting had to offer and continually has maintained a varied year round program of camping, hiking, sports, high adventure activities, conservation and community service projects and a week of camping in the summer.

During the Second World War, the Troop was involved with many “recycling and conserving resources projects as their contribution, along with most other Americans, to the war effort. Those ideals have become an integral part of Scouting today. Following the Outdoor Code as a group, Scouting sets an example in the areas of resource conservation, respect for the outdoors and nature, keeping our camping and recreation areas and communities clean and recycling as much as possible. Troop 28 continues this more than ever needed tradition of caring for and preserving what we have now, not only for today, but also for tomorrow.

At one time there was a Sea Scouts connected with the Troop. Until the late 1950′s there was an Explorer post that was a part of the Troop. Explorer Posts became separate units in the early 1960′s, but since then most boys who joined our Troop have chosen to remain until they are 18. We provide a wide range of activities, camping and challenging, as well as fun, adventures.

Troop 28 is part of the Fishawack District, in the Morris-Sussex Area Council. The Council serves all of Morris and Sussex counties and provides resource and program materials as well as arranging large scale events and Camporees. The Council also conducts training courses for adult and junior leaders. Currently the District and Council support over 250 Tiger Cub, Cub packs, Scout Troops, Special Scouting and Explorer Post units, serving over 8,000 youth. Through the years the Troop has taken part in numerous fund raising efforts for the Council. Because of our efforts, a cabin has been built and a campsite created at Camp Mt. Allamuchy.

Troop 28 has maintained a high standard of Scouting that has been noted by the Council and many volunteers in Scouting. Nationwide two percent of boys who join scouting go on to reach the rank of Eagle Scout. With determination and the right attitude a little over five percent make it to Eagle Scout in our Troop.

We have a strong adult leadership group that puts in many hours to help plan the program and to train the junior leaders to run their troop. Most leaders have had Basic Scout Training and a few have completed “Woodbadge.” Over the years some of our leaders have reached District and Council recognitions for the time and efforts they have made for Scouting and their Scouts.

Our Scouts are also involved with many special Scouting activities including the Order of the Arrow, Florida Sea Base, National Jamborees and the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.
Scouting offers you the chance to have fun, to learn, to grow, to meet challenges, and to become a leader. Troop 28 has all this and more.
