Welcome to BSA Troop 101 !

Fun. Adventure. Service. Share it with us at Troop 101. From our base at Christ United Methodist Church, Greensboro, NC, we explore the world as our outdoor classroom. Our goal is to make Scouting a great experience for our boys by providing a program that meets their needs for fun, friendship, leadership, and achievement. At the same time, it is our desire to carry out the mission of the Boy Scouts of America, which is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Take a look at the announcements and upcoming events for the latest information on weekly troop meetings, monthly outings, and service opportunities.  If you would like more information about our Troop or about how to volunteer, go to Contact Us on the Menu to your left to send an email, or contact me directly at scoutmaster@bsatroop101.org.

101 is lots of fun!

Backpacking Multiplex Trip on the AT!

Posted by ghutchinson1 on Aug 14 2014 - 12:17pm

Our intrepid Scouts and Scouters had a great experience hiking on the AT!  No bears, but good views in deep forest, many smiles, sore feet, good food, and oustanding camaraderie were enjoyed by all.  All rafters on the French Broad River enjoyed the ride with twice the normal water flow, as well as the lunch afterwards.  The Garrett's graciously opened their farm in Hot Springs to all 101er's and the Raleigh troop, and the meals and dry sleeping were most welcome.  Many, many thanks for your warm and friendly hospitality and yeoman's work shuttling people and gear!!!

Posted by ghutchinson1 on Jul 29 2014 - 5:28pm

  Congratulations to Max Elkan (pictured), Benjamin Haile, Cooper Creech, and Daniel Hutchinson-Kausch for completing their 50-mile ride for Cycling Merit Badge!  The ride took place Sunday July 20th on the New River Trail between Foster Falls and Galax, Virginia.  Including snack stops and a 45-minute break for lunch, the ride took 7 hours!  Adults Alex Elkan, Andy Haile, Gerald Hutchinson, and Lee Wilson also completed the ride.  Cam Creech provided essential logistical support via shuttle, and rode 25 miles.  This ride was very enjoyable, and we hope to make it a regular activity for Troop 101!  See you next time!

Youth Protection: Is Your Certification up to Date ?

Posted by ghutchinson1 on Jul 22 2014 - 9:57am

It is both Troop 101 policy and BSA policy that all adult leaders and merit badge counselors are screened with a background check and go through formal Youth Protection Training. Did you know, however, that if you as a parent are going to drive or camp with the troop, you also are required to take the same Youth Protection Course online?

2015 Canada Canoe Trek and Merit Badges at Scout Camp--Thinking Ahead

Posted by quiberon on Jun 9 2014 - 7:58am

As you think about the possible Merit Badges to seek at Scout Camp this summer, here is another consideration:

In order to be eligible for the Troop 101 Ontario Canoe Trek in summer 2015, Scouts will need to have earned both Canoeing and Swimming Merit Badge. Scouts who have earned Lifesaving MB will also be given preference.   This Canoe Trek will require a birthdate no later than July 15, 2002, so the concern about merit badges will not apply to younger Scouts.
