Welcome, New Families! 
Keep Informed About the Exciting Opportunities Available to Your New Scout! 

Welcome to Troop 101! As you can tell already, we're a very active organization and the need to communicate to our scouts and families is essential.

To help you and your scout, we regularly post all of our events on this website.

Sign up for access. Log in or Register in the Upper right corner of this "Home Page."
Then click the arrows to expand the windows. When you do, you'll notice the "weather" tab and "are you going" tabs on the right as well as a suggested "packing list" for your scout.
Now scroll to the "Program Tools" and click on the "Calendar." Scroll to the bottom right corner and click on the "+Google Calendar" tab on the bottom to link our calendar to yours. Now you'll always know what's going on with the troop.

You can return to the home page at any time by clicking the Troop Logo, top Left.

Now that you have the basics down, venture around the site, and see all that's available to you and your scout.

Remember to remind your scout it is his responsibility to stay informed and keep informed as we're here to help him to grow into an independent and self sufficient young leader in a safe learning environment. His Patrol Leader is his guide and mentor. Remind your scout to find him first with any questions he may have because his Patrol Leader knows EVERYTHING!

Again, Welcome!

Great Trail Council - Scouters' News

The Scouters' News is published monthly for the volunteers of the Great Trail Council, if you would like notification when a new edition is available, please visit this link to sign up: Scouters' News

NEW: Check out February 2018

If you have an older book, you should print THESE REPLACEMENT PAGES so that you are up to date with the requirements that became mandatory on 1/1/17.  You do not lose credit for any requirements completed, but you must meet all the new requirements in order to advance to the next rank. 

The Conservation Project requirement for Life seems to cause a lot of confusion for Scouts

The best and most consistent source we have is the BSA’s “Conservation Good Turn” award which can be viewed in its entirety by clicking here.

Although you DO NOT need to complete this award to satisfy the requirement, we do ask that you use it as a guide when you and your patrol together explorer patrol projects that would.  The following is an excerpt which should serve as your guide when organizing projects that would satisfy the requirement:

Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers - Suggested projects include, but are not limited to

  1. Plant shrubs to provide food and cover for wildlife.
  2. Build and set out bird and squirrel nesting boxes.
  3. Conduct stream improvement projects to prevent erosion.
  4. Plant grasses and legumes to provide ground cover in schoolyards, public parks, and recreation areas.
  5. Plant tree seedlings as part of a managed forestry plan.
  6. Help thin and prune woodlands in a managed tree improvement project.
  7. With a local forester, take part in or conduct a forest fire prevention program.
  8. Make an exhibit on conservation for a county fair.
  9. Develop a nature trail in a public park.
  10.  Assist a local forester in a tree insect- and disease-control or public education project.
  11. Assist a local agency with a trout stream restoration project.
  12. Participate in a wildlife or wildfowl count.
  13. Conduct a rodent-control and public health education program under the guidance of the local health department or agency responsible for rodent control.

To verify the completion/satisfaction of this requirement, we ask that you FIRST arrange the project with either the Campmaster or Ranger of the facility, THEN carry out the project and have the Campmaster/Ranger document and verify the hours worked and that the project was satisfactorily completed.
