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.

Scout BSA Troop 201 is for boys ages 11 - 17 (Grades 5 - 12). For more information please feel free to come to a scout meeting or drop the Scout Master an email at: scoutmaster@ptctroop201.org

Unless you've been living under a rock lately, you’ve probably heard the word ‘conservation’ quite a lot in the BSA. Perhaps you’re wondering: what exactly does conservation mean? Well wonder no more...

Family Campout Sept 4-5

Posted on Aug 22 2020 - 10:47pm

Let's go camping!  

Beau Rogers (703-398-2497rogersf16@aol.com) is organizing a family campout
for Troop 201 Scouts and their parent(s) for the weekend of September 4-5.

This is a one-night campout at Fort Yargo State Park starting Friday night,
September 4th, then waking up Saturday morning and driving to Road Atlanta
for a day of Sports Car Racing.  This pop-up campout is aimed at getting
some official camping nights added to the Scouts' Camping Merit Badge
requirements.  We are camping separately, but in the same area.  Mr. Rogers
reserved a 1-acre "pioneer campsite" that can accommodate 40+ tents,
complete with 8 x picnic tables, large fire pit, water, BBQ grills, outhouse
for restrooms, but no electricity.  We will not use patrol chuck boxes or
the Scout trailer.  There should be modern restrooms/showers available for
use in the other camping areas.  Every Scout should be accompanied by his
parent/guardian, and this "family unit" will be in charge of its own
transportation, food preparation/disposal, sleeping arrangements, and
optional race tickets for Saturday.  Costs for camping are $5 per car to
enter, and $10-$20 per family based on numbers, payable to Beau.  You can
cook your own food over a fire or pick up Chick-fil-A/pizza. Drive time is 1
hour 45 minutes.

ACTION:  Beau Rogers needs to know how many Scouts/parents plan on
attending.  Please e-mail Mr. Rogers at rogersf16@aol.com if you are
interested in attending or have any questions.  He will send out more
details as the weekend draws near.  Details are below.

Friday: Depart Providence Church at 4:30 PM.  If you can't make departure
time, then we'll see you at the campsite.  Arrive, set up camp, and eat
dinner.  Everyone meets at the fire pit at 7:30 PM. Mr. Rogers will bring
rope and assign each Scout a knot to teach the others (EDGE method). Each
Scout will have a turn to teach the others to tie his knot.

Saturday:  Wake up, pack up, clean up, and depart for Road Atlanta Raceway.

There are a number of breakfast options on the way, including Chick-fil-A.

It is a 30 minute drive from the campsite to Road Atlanta. Each "family
unit" is responsible for their area.  Our site is reserved for someone else
starting Saturday afternoon so we will all clean up and depart in the

Option 1: There are 3 races at Road Atlanta on Saturday.  The first begins
at 8:30 AM, and the main event 6-hour race starts at 11:45 AMand ends at

5:45 PM.  The races are Lamborghini Trofeo, Porsche GT3 Cup, and IMSA Grand
Prix.  There will be plenty of open seating at the racetrack, so no specific
agenda for Saturday.  Show up and enjoy the race(s), and depart when tired
of watching.

 - Cost: $50 per person, kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by an
adult.  Group discounts are available at sizes 20 and greater.  Military
discounts with ID.  Tickets are good for both Saturday and Sunday (3 races
on Sunday starting at 8:00 AM: Porsche GT3 Cup, Lamborghini Trofeo, and
4-hour Pilot Challenge).  You can pre-purchase on-line but I recommend
buying them at Will Call at the race when you arrive.

Option 2: Stay at Yargo State Park.  40 miles of excellent mountain bike
trails, hiking, frisbee golf, canoe rentals, and a beach/swimming area.

Option 3: Return home and continue to enjoy your Labor Day weekend.
