Welcome to Troop 201

Welcome to the Scout BSA Troop 201 website

Scout BSA Troop 201 is chartered by and meets at Providence United Methodist Church in Peachtree City, GA. We believe in the "Boy Led" leadership principle of Scouting in which the boys lead the troop, plan the events and elect their own leadership. By granting autonomy, giving respect, bestowing responsibility and encouraging leadership, we have become one of the fastest growing troops in the Council. Our scouts are Prepared for Life™.  Read the "About Us" section to learn more about our troops membership requirements.
