Scouts BSA Troop 288 sponsors three units:

  • Boy Troop - for boys ages 11-17 years old
  • Girl Troop - for girls ages 11-17 years old
  • Venturing Crew - for boys and girls ages 14-21 years old  
Our troop is part of the Foothills District in the Verdugo Hills Council.  We are proud to be chartered by the American Legion Post 288, located at 4011 La Crescenta Avenue, La Crescenta, CA.  Troop 288's goal is to create and maintain a great scouting experience for our developing Scouts.  We are committed to providing a program of basic scout skills, outdoor activities, community service, and friendship building.  Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem.  We emphasize FUN activities aimed at building good character, citizenship, moral responsibility and physical & mental fitness.  Our Troop is "Scout-Led" meaning our youth members are in charge, but guided by adults.  Our Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters provide guidance, lead Treks, and work with the scouts to ensure a quality program.  The Troop Committee functions as an administration, and provides support to our units.  We encourage all parents to become involved in the scouting program as assistant scoutmasters, trek leaders, merit badge counselors, and committee members.  Parents are always welcome to participate in any of our activities.
