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!

 Walt Pharr,  Scoutmaster Troop 101

Virginia Creeper Bike Trip - Register Now!

Posted on Apr 17 2014 - 9:35am

It's time to register for the April adventure outing. On April 25-27, Troop 101 will head to the area around Damascus, Va.  The highlight of the trip will be biking the Virginia Creeper Trail,  an 18-mile trail that starts at the White Top Station and takes bikers past blooming meadows, rushing streams and rustic farms. You do not need to be an expert biker. The entire trip is a gentle downward slope. If you can stay on a bike, gravity will take care of the rest. The bike trail is the old railroad bed of the Virginia-Carolina Railroad Company. The trail goes through the Grayson Highlands National Recreation Area, and it is an incredibly beautiful trail. We will camp at a campground near the trailhead.

Youth Protection is Your Certification up to Date ?

Posted on Apr 17 2014 - 9:28am

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?
