Dear Parent and Scout:
Welcome to Scouts BSA Troop 298. Our Troop is chartered by Faith Lutheran Church in Flower Mound, TX, located at 6000 Morriss Road. Troop 298 has been an active Boy Scout Troop since 1986. We are part of the Longhorn Council -Topsanah District.
We have a year round program and meet once a week . A few highlights from previous years include: Longhorn Council Camporees; local area campouts; day trips (Canoe Races, Merit Badge College, and a week of Summer Camp.
Our Troop participates in local Council & District activities, as well as, Troop sponsored activities. District activities include: "Scouting for Food", District Camporees, and District Fundraisers.
Our primary Troop fundraiser occurs from the 1st week in February through the end of March. The Troop loads and transports mulch to local residents as part of our Mulch fundraiser. All Scouts and parents are requested to participate in this activity. This is our primary fundraiser to fund troop needs for the whole year.
In the Boy Scout program, the boys complete activities and earn advancement through participation in scout meetings. At the meetings senior scouts and registered adult leaders provide training activities and demonstrations. Parents are invited to become involved in the scouting program as Assistant Scoutmasters, Troop Committee members, and Merit Badge Counselors.
We invite you to join us at one of our meetings, to see how Troop 298 operates.
There is a registration fee for scouts and adult. The rates vary so please feel free to contact us for fee information. If you need additional information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
