BSA welcomes girls and young women into the Scouting BSA program.  It is the same program that has helped young men to gain leadership and outdoor skills while having fun for over a hundred years.  Troop 288 is proud to have an ALL GIRL Unit, and welcomes every girl aged 11-17 to join us.  Contact Brigitte Schwing (Scoutmaster) for additional information.
