About Us


Our Philosophy

Troop 301 boys and girls troops are fun, youth-led organizations for boys and girls of middle school and high school age. The troops develop the Scouts' skills in leadership, citizenship, and their sense of adventure. The Scouts plan and execute all troop events under the guidance of the BSA-trained adult Scoutmaster corps.  The Scout leaders (Senior Patrol Leader, Patrol Leaders, et al.) choose, plan, and lead the activities and outings for the year. We cultivate the development of the whole scout, with all their individual talents and interests.

An inclusive group, the troop promotes balancing school, family, and other extracurricular activities, while extending service to the community. Although we encourage and support rank advancement, our main emphasis remains the process: learning vital skills for life and how to lead others through positive and respectful guidance -- along with having FUN. We love to build! 

We strongly believe in imbuing our youth with the spirit of the Scouts BSA mission statement:

Prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.


Troop 301 Mission Statement

  1. Strive to follow the Scout Oath, Law, and Motto in our daily lives.
  2. Emphasize a Scout-led program with a variety of outdoor activities.
  3. Promote youth self-sufficiency in the wilderness and at home.
  4. Produce confident leaders who can lead by example.


Our Program


We meet on most Monday nights at Tierra Linda Middle School (750 Dartmouth Ave, San Carlos) from 7:30 to 9:00 pm.  The meetings are planned and run by the elected Scout leaders, and focus on teaching important Scout skills through demonstration and games.

The troop goes on outdoor excursions at least once per month. Like the meetings, troop's outings are planned and run by the youth Scout leaders– the elected Senior Patrol Leader and Patrol Leaders.

The troop has gone hiking, backpacking, kayaking, biking, and horseback riding as part of the program of developing youth independence and leadership. The range of camping trips have ranged from Henry Coe State Park and Point Reyes to Potholes in the Sierra Nevadas and moonlit hiking at Tumey Hills. In the summers, the troop embarks upon week-long trips to various Scout summer programs, as well as high-adventure backpacking for the older Scouts to locations such as Kings Canyon National Park, the wilderness of Utah and Arizona, and Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.

To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
