Wilderness Survival Campout


The boys just got back from an awesome wilderness survival experience! They camped out in their tents Friday night, but those went back in the trailer on Saturday morning. The Scouts went through some intensive survival training and were then sent into the woods in small groups to build their own shelters, fashion spears, traps and snares to "catch" their own food, and then to build their own fires to cook that food. Luckily, everyone succeeded and nobody had to go hungry.

The adults cooked breakfast for the boys on Sunday and boy did they eat well!


Here's a link to the photo album with all the pix from the weekend.

Troop 100 Featured in Dallas Morning News 4th of July Edition

July 4, 2014

Hannah DeClerk did a nice feature story on Troop 100 in the DMN Fourth of July Edition.

The reporter visited the troop meeting on June 24 and talked to many of the boys and adult leaders. She took numerous photos and was very impressed with our troop. She seemed most impressed by the fact that we truly are a boy-led troop as she saw boys taking initiative in several areas during her visit. Good job guys! Keep it up...

Troop 100 is proud to announce the election of its new Scoutmaster, Larry Tapp!

December 15, 2013

Larry was born and raised in Texas, and graduated from Cedar Hill High School in 1987. He currently works for Dallas County Sheriff’s Department. He is married to Kathryn and has one son, Lane, who is currently a Star Scout. Larry's hobbies include fishing, hunting, camping, and watching sports.

As a Cub Scout leader he assisted at Pack 244, then joined Troop 100 in 2011, where he took on the assignments of Quarter Master and Assistant Scoutmaster. Larry has completed Wood Badge 100. He has attended two summer camps and many weekend campouts.

Larry's Vision for Troop 100:

Troop 100 should continue to be boy-led and boy-run with a few exceptions when necessary. Larry wants only the best for the boys and will do everything he can to help them become leaders.


The purpose of the Scouting program is to build character, foster citizenship, and develop mental, moral, and physical fitness in young men. These are the cornerstones of the aims of Scouting. This is achieved through a challenging program that encourages personal achievement, promotes personal growth, and develops a sense of responsibility and commitment. Scouting allows a boy to see and learn about the world around him through exposure to different cultures, government, skills and crafts, the environment, nature and much, much more that he may not otherwise experience during his most formative years.

"The Patrol method is not a way to operate a Boy Scout troop, it is the only way. Unless the patrol method is in operation you don't really have a Boy Scout troop."- Robert Baden Powell
