Trying to put a thousand skills
into every troop's backpack

  About Us

TroopResource.org is dedicated to helping troops that need resources. We are a source of curated videos, links to valuable resources, plus we produce our videos specifically for Parents andLeaders to help their Scouts. We make it possible for you to watch experts and guest speakers share their secrets, experts explain how to select the best gear and merit badge counselors discuss the tips & tricks that will make your Scouting experience easier and so much more!

The fact that you've read this far this tells me you are intrigued.  That’s great!  The Scout Leaders that are putting this project together are resourceful and are so committed to this project that they are making it all happen out of their own pockets.  If you like what they are doing, would you be willing to buy them a cup of coffee (figuratively speaking)? You can do that by donating what you might pay for that coffee, today. The donate button, below, will take you to a secure PayPal site. The amount is up to you.

The ½ Hour Show.

TroopResource.org is working to produce an annual ½ hour show composed of three segments that cover a timely topic, a review of a specific piece of gear and a merit badge.

Curated Videos (Gear, Tips, Tricks and Hacks)
There are hundreds of thousands of camping and scout-type videos on the Internet; some of them good, some of them not so good, and some of them have good parts that are stuck in the middle of not-so-relevant material. We create our own short, "meaty" videos and curate a list of "good ones" produced by other people (like you) to watch. We also take suggestions from our fans regarding what to post. 



New Leader and New Parent Information
We are in the process of putting together a simple-to-follow guide for new leaders and parents of new scouts. As a newbie, it's sometimes hard to know where you fit in and what to do next. If you have questions, you can ask us or join a number of the forums we support. One good Facebook forum is https://www.facebook.com/groups/Talk.about.Scouting/. This is a "managed group," so you have to request to join.

We Help Growing and Struggling Troops
Our primary goal is to help troops that want to grow and experience new things as they struggle to keep their Scouts on track and having fun. If you would like to volunteer to help us reach this goal, there are many young people who will be eternally grateful. Most volunteer work can be done from home.

Our Visionary "Long-Term Goal"
We have a long-term goal... a LIVE Internet TV show called the Global Troop Town Hall, where Leaders (and Scouts) get to interact with the experts. We'd like you to be a part of that, too.

Where are We Located?
TroopResource.org is based out of Springfield, Pennsylvania (near Philadelphia), yet our information reaches out across America. You can reach back to us by sending an email to Scout.Info@TroopResource.org.
