Troop Information

  BSA Troop 101 is sponsored by the Christ United Methodst Church on North Holden Road. We usually meet on Tuesday nights at 7:30 p.m. in the church Youth Building adjacent to the gymnasium. Visitors are invited to drop by at any time.  Please check our troop calendar for exact meeting times and locations as we are a troop on the move -traditional yet flexible. 

     Troop 101 is one of the largest troops in the USA. We maintain a active membership of around 120-140 scouts at any point in time.  Our outdoor program is the heart of the organization. LEADERSHIP is taught through the patrol method, exercised in the outdoors.  Each year the troop sends over 100 Scouts to 3 separate week-long Boy Scout camps. Older Scouts not only attend Scout Camps with their buddies but are challenged with sea kayaking, glacier climbing, rappelling, white water rafting, caving, sailing, and backpacking.

     Our troop operates a highly organized advancement program to teach the scouts basic scout skills in the first year and then provides opportunities to earn the merit badges required for higher rank advancement.  Although historically over 40% of Scouts who join 101 attain the rank of Eagle Scout, this is not our goal. Instead, it is to develop young men of character who will continue to give back to their community. We believe in the purpose of the BSA, and we are not ashamed to maintain its high standards.
