Welcome to Troop 301!

Welcome to the Troop 301 Website

BSA Troop 301 consists of a boys troop and girls troop. It is chartered through the San Carlos Kiwanis. Our troop meetings are held at the Tierra Linda Middle School in San Carlos, CA.  We are in the Redwood District of the Pacific Skyline Council.




We have approximately 35 scouts in our troop and we meet three Mondays a month at 7:30pm at Tierra Linda Middle School (750 Dartmouth Ave., San Carlos). We have at least one outing scheduled for every month. Our outdoor program has an emphasis on variety and includes; backpacking, rock climbing, day hikes, winter camping, deep snow camping, snowboarding & skiing, whitewater rafting, sea kayaking, summer camps, 50-miler treks and Philmont treks.

Our Troop 301 Mission Statement is:

  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.

Regular Meetings Cancelled

Posted on Mar 13 2020 - 1:11pm

Given current public health recommendations, Troop 301 will be cancelling regular meetings for the foreseeable future.

 So long as local schools are closed and the health department advises only small group meetings with 2-meter distancing, we will not meet indoors.  Please note that the next few weeks are a great time to work on advancement such as merit badges and rank advancement! Scouts can meet with merit badge counselors over the telephone – provided that the meeting takes place using a speakerphone and another adult is present to hear the conversation.  Scouts can work with their counselor and Ms. Nicholson to record progress through Scoutbook.

Yosemite Logistics

Posted on Jan 15 2020 - 10:18pm

Hello Troop! We leave for Yosemite in just a week. We will meet at the usual Safeway on Ralston at Alameda de las Pulgas on Saturday 1/18 at 8am. Please arrive having already eaten breakfast, with a bag lunch, and ready to drive.  It is about a 4-hour drive into Yosemite. Because of the forecasted snow in the next week, the recommended driving route is through Merced and entering the park from the south via Highway 140.
