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.

Going Fishing

Posted on Oct 8 2019 - 10:14am

After the service project on Saturday morning at the UMC, any Scout who'd like to go fishing is welcome to hike to Wallace Lake.
We'll fish for as long as each Scout likes -- we'll stay near the parking area by the beach so that parents can find us.

Eagle Service Project - Saturday 28th

Posted on Sep 18 2019 - 10:25am

Hi Troop. The following is from Dylan Coble:
My project will be taking place on Saturday September 28th at 9:00 am. I will need your guys’ help with renovating garden beds at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Berea. Basically, we will be taking out old wooden planks that surround garden beds, and replacing them with landscape blocks. I will need as many guys as possible, hopefully I get 10-15! Obviously, there will be Pizza and Cookies for your hard work. It will probably take around four hours, but should be fun and not too much physical labor. I appreciate in advance your help!
