Welcome !

Troop 75 is a growing group of more than 70 energetic, motivated boys ranging in age from 11 to 17. We are the original Boy Scout Troop sponsored by the Peachtree City United Methodist Church beginning in 1980. Troop 75 prides itself on being a ”boy-run, boy-led” troop. We develop leadership skills in boys with experienced Scouts acting as mentors to younger Scouts. Experienced and dedicated adult leadership is always on hand to give guidance and assistance, when necessary.

SUMMER VIRTUAL TROOP MEETINGS - keep checking the calendar for impromptu sessions / activities

Church and Lodge closed.


Even though we are not physically meeting on Tuesday's this does not mean that folks have not been making progress; completing Merit Badges, SM Conferences, Boards of Review, gaining Eagle Rank.

We are also preparing for Summer Camp (moved from Week 2 to Week 8) whilst looking for opportunities to complete the Scuba Certifications started back in March.

This all takes a huge amount of effort in the background, on top of everyday activities. 

Thanks to everyone, Zoom ing, WebEx ing, Teams ing, SurveyMonkey ing, emailing to make this work.


We are looking at options to restart Scuba Certifications {Pool / Classroom and Open Water} - watch this space 


Atlanta Area Council has let us know that they still plan on holding Summer Camp. HOWEVER we have had to change the date to 19 July/ 25 July; this is Week 8 of Summer Camp.  They are looking at how they will modify their program / meals / etc to mitigate risks - when we have details we will let you know.

When we know more we will send a separate announcement

Group Instruction - from the BSA Guide for Advancement

Posted on Apr 27 2020 - 6:01pm

It is acceptable—and sometimes desirable {especially in these times} —for merit badges to be taught in group settings. This often occurs at camp and merit badge midways, fairs, clinics, or similar events, and even online through webinars. These can be efficient methods, and interactive group discussions can support learning.

Group instruction can also be attractive to “guest experts” assisting registered and approved counselors. Slide shows, skits, demonstrations, panels, and various other techniques can also be employed, but as any teacher can attest, not everyone will learn all the material.

Because of the importance of individual attention and personal learning in the merit badge program, group instruction should be focused on those scenarios where the benefits are compelling. There must be attention to each individual’s projects and fulfillment of all requirements.

We must know that every Scout—actually and personally—completed them. If, for example, a requirement uses words like “show,” “demonstrate,” or “discuss,” then every Scout must do that. It is unacceptable to award badges on the basis of sitting in classrooms watching demonstrations, or remaining silent during discussions.

Virtual Campout

Posted on Apr 27 2020 - 5:50pm

"For those scouts who did the virtual campout last weekend, and want credit for it, please send your photo to mhofrichter@rhkpc.com.  No credit will be given until that is done.  This will be the only posting sent regarding this.

Summer Camp

Posted on Apr 21 2020 - 10:02am

Summer Camp is scheduled for 7 June 2020 and is now starting to come onto our planning horizon


The signup website is: https://ptctroop75.mytroop.us/node/10526


Although at this time many things are unclear at this stage


However we do know from Woodruff that “we are still planning to have our Summer Camps.  We are monitoring many factors and working hard to plan the safest possible summer camp experience“


Concerning Medical Forms, Woodruff recognizes that this may cause some issues but are saying that they are “currently evaluating all options”


Tonnee will be working register folks and their Merit Badges in early May
