Thank you for visiting Troop 100’s new website. While we’re working on building more content for our scouts and leaders on this site, please browse our photo gallery and blogs to see all of the fun activities and projects.
You may be interested in learning more about how scouting will change now that we are welcoming girls to begin their own units/troops. Hint: the scouting program isn’t changing.
Most importantly, if you or a young woman you know is interested in beginning her scouting adventure, Troop 100 has a girl troop for her. Please complete our contact form if you’d like more information.
That’s me and my daughter Abbey at the marina at BSA’s Florida Sea Base. All of my children have participated in the scouting program. I was an Assistant Scoutmaster with Troop 100 for 7 years while my sons (one is an Eagle and the other will be a Life Scout for life) grew up in the scouting program. My oldest daughter served as president of her Venturing Crew. My youngest daughter, whom you see pictured with me, is currently a Star Scout in Troop 100G.
Scouting is important to me. It has given our family wonderful opportunities to learn leadership skills, outdoor skills, and travel across the southeast on hiking, kayaking, and sailing adventures. I am so excited that Scouts BSA will include girls and allow them the opportunity to earn the prestigious Eagle Award. I love leading a girl troop and look forward to seeing the impact that girls will have on this program.
I hope you’ll join us!
Meet Scoutmaster Leslie Wiggins
I joined Troop 100 in 2013 with my oldest son and have enjoyed scouting with all four of my sons ever since, becoming the scoutmaster of 100B in Spring 2020. During the past 7 years I have joined the troop on kayaking trips down rivers, camping on islands, rappelling down cliffs, visiting great museums and battlefields, exploring caves, riding bikes, and many other fun activities. But the best part about scouting is seeing boys grow up and take on responsibility and leadership to become great men. Often this is through the challenges of camping in the rain, dealing with forgetting supplies, or helping each other through tough times. Troop 100B is a boy-led troop and is always looking for more scouts to join the adventure.
With COVID still raging through Alabama communities, it is more difficult than ever to keep things “business as usual”. Thankfully, for Scout Troops and Venture Crews throughout Alabama, and even parts of Georgia, Camp Horne staff in Cottondale, Alabama, had a few tricks up their sleeves. Thanks to passionate camp coordinators and volunteers, Camp Horne’s … Continue reading Winter Camp 2020
ON OCTOBER 10TH, Troop 100 G Star Scouts Abbey and Isabel began a conservation project required for their rank advancements. The two of them decided, based on resources Troop 100 already possessed from a bygone Eagle Project, to create bird houses from large, hollow gourds. They allocated about 3 hours to complete the work they … Continue reading For the Birds
Whether you are paddling on the water, climbing, geocaching, hiking or biking, being considerate of other visitors helps everyone enjoy their outdoor experience. Principle #7 means more than “be quiet.” Decreasing the noise pollution is very important, but it is not the only thing to consider when being considerate of others. But I saw this … Continue reading LNT #7: Be Considerate of Other Visitors
Mid March everything was flipped upside down, as Scout group Troop 100 G knows very well. They had just embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime high adventure trip at SeaBase in the Florida Keys when case numbers were starting to appear in every state. Needless to say, that was the last normal trip they had before things … Continue reading Scouting amid COVID: a Guide by Troop 100 G
