  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 videos specifically for Parents and Leaders 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 donate just $3? The donate button, below, will take you to a secure donation site. The amount is up to you.

 

Den Chief with Inspirational Message

Donate Button
Thank you. We have met our fundraising goals for the year.


The ½ Hour Show.

TroopResource.org is now airing a live, call-in show on the second Wednesday of every month (Sept. thru June) at 8:00 PM Eastern time from our Facebook page.

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"
Our dream started in 2015 with a couple of Scout-led videos; then a pod-cast and now we are producing 10 shows a year 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 Info@TroopResource.org.
