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.

Partials from Summer Camp

Posted by rogermilton on Aug 30 2014 - 5:08pm

Several scouts earned partial merit badges at summer camp.  I will place the cards in the "grey football" in the black box I bring to troop meetings.  It is your responsibility to get the remaining requirements signed off by a counselor and deliver the completed card to me for advancement credit.  Please advise if you have any questions.  Mr. Milton

Wood Badge course More participants needed, See Matusheski's note.

Posted by rogermilton on Aug 22 2014 - 9:48am

Wood Badge Training is desirable for every assistant scoutmaster. 

This year’s Wood Badge course is in need of more registrations.  They are close, but don’t quite have enough sign-ups to hold a course yet. They need to get several more people signed up by next week.  While looking over the list of registrants, Baden-Powell District only has 2 registrants.  That’s right, out of hundreds of leaders that are not Wood Badge training yet, only 2 have signed up. 

High Adventure trips under discussion

Posted by rogermilton on Aug 12 2014 - 4:01pm

The eligible scouts were polled at summer camp and expressed an interest in going to Sea Base in 2016.  Reservations are made by the boatload via a National lottery so there is no guarantee that all interested parties can participate.  In the interest of making it as fair as possible, there will be a lottery at the upcoming court of honor to prioritize who gets to go.  To be considered, a check for $100 must be in the hat when the drawing occurs.  Rules for prioritization are on the website.

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.
