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

Spring Court of Honor!

Posted by rbell on Feb 24 2015 - 3:22pm

Don't forget to sign up for our Spring Court of Honor celebration on March 3. Please join us as we celebrate the accomplishments and hard work of our Troop 101 Scouts. The Court of Honor is a special occasion to honor our scout's determination and character over the past three months. It's also about BBQ, mac-n-cheese hush ppupppies and banana pudding. Let me say that again: Banana. Pudding. Dinner is $7. We'll be taking money at the door. Sign up here to let us know how many from your family will be attending. You do not need to register to attend, but you must register to eat dinner by Feb. 28. And if you can help out in the kitchen, please let us know that, too. We hope to see you Tuesday, March 3 at 6:30.

Parent Info Forum - Topic: "Earning Merit Badges through Troop 101 / the upcoming MB College" - Guest Speaker, Colleen Pinyan

Posted by swworrellsr on Feb 23 2015 - 12:06pm

Parents, please join us on Tuesday, February 24th (no troop meeting last week because of weather conditions) as Colleen Pinyan will be with us from the Advancement Committee to discuss the process of earning Merit Badges through Troop 101 and also talk about Troop 101's upcoming Merit Badge College. Merit Badges, a vital part of the scouting advancement program, not only teaches important life skills, but may also serve as an introduction to lifetime hobbies or an inspiration to pursue various career choices. This process helps give the scout confidence through overcoming obstacles, having new learning experiences, improving social skills, and becoming more self-reliant.
