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.

Posted by michaelrueter on Oct 24 2014 - 7:09am

Troop dues for 2015 have been set, with a due date of Nov. 20, 2014.  Collecting dues is a critical step in getting our troop chartered for the coming year, so please get you payments submitted promptly. If you don't plan to renew, please let us know.  This gives us accurate headcount when we submit registration paperwork.  Please follow the link "Troop Dues for 2015" in the menu at right for the details on your dues balance.  Note that everyone that paid for 2014 summer camp at Camp Rodney has been credited $25 because the summer camp trip ended up with a surplus.

Leadership requires participation

Posted by rogermilton on Oct 5 2014 - 4:09pm

Patrol Leaders must participate in troop camping trips and other troop activities to be considered for leadership credit towards advancement.  In those cases where a patrol leader misses a required event, he should request an excused absence from the scoutmaster and discuss whether he will receive any partial credit towards his next rank advancement.   RGM
