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!

Scholarships Available for Philmont

Posted by quiberon on Aug 24 2014 - 9:31am

There are three Philmont scholarships given out in our council each year to Eagle Scouts who have earned that rank in the previous year.  Any boys who get Eagle in 2014 can apply for the scholarships to be applied to their 2015 Troop 101 trip.   The amount is usually about $1200 and many times, very few apply because the word doesn't get out.  The application process starts in October and goes until the end of the year.  A scout who expects to make Eagle in December can apply in October or November.  He just has to be Eagle in 2014 to be eligible.

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

Posted by quiberon on Aug 23 2014 - 12:10pm

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.

101 Scouts Bike 50-Miles!

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!
