Dear Parent and Scout:
Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 298. Our Troop is chartered by the Village Church of Highland Village located at 1700 Highland Village Road, Highland Village, Texas 75077. 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, Spring Orienteering, Merit Badge College, Webelos Woods [for recruiting] etc.); 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 2nd 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.
The Scout registration fee for the Boy Scout program is $28.25 per year including insurance and purchase of a subscription to Boy's Life Magazine. Adult registration is $16.25. These rates are subject to change each year. If you need additional information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
