Welcome To Troop 998 Web Page!

Welcome to the website of Boy Scout Troop 998, chartered in Pleasanton, CA, by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (V.F.W.) Post #6298. We have been serving the youth of Pleasanton for over 50 years, putting the Outing in Scouting, through community service, camping in the great outdoors, and allowing our youth to learn by example through the leadership of our youth. We develop responsible and capable youth through camping, adventure, learning and most importantly, through fun and friendship.

Board of Reviews

Thank you to those who have signed up.

We still need a few parents to round out our board of review groups on Tuesday Oct 28th.

Board of Reviews are an essential part of the advancement process in scouting.

If we do not have enough parents at each BOR session then boys will begin to miss advancement opportunities.

Please use the link below and sign up to be part of a scouts’ Board of Review
