Welcome to Troop 117

About Troop 117

Troop 117 is located in Plymouth Meeting, PA.  The troop serves boys ages 11 through 17 from the Whitpain, Plymouth, Whitemarsh, and Conshohocken areas.  We meet on Thursday nights at 7:00 PM in the Grady Hall portion of the Holy Rosary school located at Epiphany Of Our Lord R.C. Church at the corner of Walton and Township Line Roads.  Troop 117 is made up of 4 patrols and a varsity crew, consisting of about 40 scouts and 10 adults.  Every year after new scouts join the troop, generally, Webelos, a “New Boy Patrol" is formed to create an environment for the new scouts to learn scoutcraft skills, leadership, and teamwork, before having the option to transfer to existing scout patrols.

The Varsity crew consists of older scouts who are participating in High Adventure activities while typically continuing to serve in troop leadership positions.  To be a member of Varsity Team 117, a scout must be a primary member of a troop, usually, Troop 117, out of the eighth grade, submitted a membership application which has approved by the Varsity Coach and be active in Team 117 activities.

For our July 17 Troop Meeting, the troop will gather at Forbidden Drive for a short hike and other outdoor activities. To find our meeting point, drive on Germantown Ave to Northwestern Ave, turn right on Northwestern Ave to reach the Forbidden Drive trailhead.  If it is raining, we will meet at Epiphany in the gym.

OA Ordeal

Posted by rogermilton on Jul 14 2014 - 9:20am

Please send Mr. Milton an email when you complete nights camping away from the scouts.  Nights at OA ordeals, NYLT training, Den Chief, Jamboree activities and camp counselor activities count towards your nights camping and are often overlooked.

Water Bottles are part of the summer uniform

Posted by rogermilton on Jul 10 2014 - 8:32am

Just a reminder that a water bottle is part of your summer uniform.  It's hot out there.  Everywhere you go you should have a water bottle in hand filled with water that you drink from frequently.

Reminder - Submit health forms and paperwork for summer camp!

Posted by michaelrueter on Jul 10 2014 - 7:17am

Summer camp is just around the corner, so make sure that you submit all required paperwork.  Health forms should be submited ASAP - make sure that they are signed by the participant, the parent, and the doctor, and make sure to attach a copy of your health insurance card (front and back).   Also, please submit a permission slip if you haven't already done so.  See the links at right for "Health and Medical Forms" and "Summer Camp" to obtain copies of forms.
