Welcome to the Troop 228 website

Scouts, parents and adult leaders, please login to see more content.

Boy Scout Troop 228 is located in Berea, Ohio and charted by the United Methodist Church of Berea as a troop in the Lake Erie Council. Troop meetings are on Sunday nights from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM at the United Methodist Church at 170 Seminary Street.

There are monthly camping trips. Recent destinations have been Beaumont Scout Reservation, Camp Alaska at Firelands Scout Reservation, Camp Pee Wee near Lodi, Mohican Wilderness Campground, white water rafting on the Youghiogheny River in Pennsylvania, South Bass Island, Camp Stigwandish, Top O’Ledges, and the Buffalo Naval Park.

We go to Seven Ranges Scout Reservation for summer camp. This is a week long trip beginning on a Sunday and ending on a Saturday, usually the fourth week in June.

For our High Adventure program we sent a crew to Seabase in Florida in 2018, to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico in 2014. We sent scouts to the 2017 National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia. In the summer of 2012 several of our scouts attended the Eagle Base High Adventure program in the Allegheny mountains of Pennsylvania.

We are in uncharted waters with the current situation that has gripped our nation. Lake Erie Council has canceled all events and has left the decision up to each unit on how to proceed with our activities. Mr. Miller spoke to our Unit Commissioner and other Scoutmasters in the area and has decided in the best interest of our scouts' health and safety is to cancel all events until school resumes. We will return to regular scouting activities on April 5th. We will reschedule the Camp Pee Wee Campout at a later date.
