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 Hannah at “Big Tree” in the Sipsey Wilderness. I’ve been an Assistant Scoutmaster with Troop 100 for 7 years while my sons have grown up in the scouting program. My oldest son has already earned the Eagle Award, and my younger son is still working on his requirements. My daughter, whom you see pictured with me, served as president of her Venturing Crew 100 before she and all her friends graduated from the program.

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 am looking forward to leading a girl troop and seeing the impact that girls will have on this program.

I hope you’ll join us!

Meet Scoutmaster Leslie Wiggins

I was raised in Florence, Al where I was a member of Troop 75 and earned the rank of Eagle.  I specifically remember at my Eagle board of review being asked what I saw as my future involvement in Scouting.  My answer was that I enjoyed my scouting experience and would always support scouting and encourage my children to participate.  My son Matthew is currently a member of Troop 100 and is at the rank of Life working toward earning his Eagle.  I became Scoutmaster of Troop 100 in the summer of 2019.  Luckily, I have a strong support system within the troop from both the boys and the adults.  I am looking forward to working with the scouts and giving them the opportunities that Scouting provides.
