Welcome to Troop 100 – please join us! Our goal is to teach boys leadership and environmental awareness through outdoor camping activities and community service. The Oldest Boy Scout Troop in Washington, D.C. – Established 1917
Camping is an integral part of the Troop 100 experience. Campouts are scheduled each month through-out the entire year. Although participation at all campouts is not mandatory, it is strongly encouraged. The “Perfect Attendance Plaque”, awarded to Scouts each year at the Troop’s Anniversary Dinner, is for perfect attendance on all of the Troop’s campouts in that year.
It’s on a campout that the magic of Scouting occurs. It is here where the boys get to truly practice their Scouting Skills. Leadership blossoms during the planning and implementation of a campout. And a deep love and true appreciation for Nature can only occur while one is out in Nature. Books, television or movies cannot convey or replace the experience of actually being outdoors.
Merit badges are awards earned by youth members of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), based on activities within an area of study by completing a list of periodically updated requirements. The purpose of the merit badge program is to allow Scouts to examine subjects to determine if they would like to further pursue them as a career or a vocation.
