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. 

Deadline for Philmont Scholarship Applications is 12/1/2015

Cold Weather camping is here

Posted by rogermilton on Nov 2 2014 - 3:11pm

The weather forecast for Hickory Run shows temperatures dropping to 30 at night with a chance of snow on Friday.  While this is not bitterly cold, hats, gloves, and winter coats are needed.  A 30 degree sleeping bag is not adequate without supplemental equipment such as sleeping clothes including hat and gloves and possibly a hostel sheet or additional blanket.    Be Prepared.

Sea Base Options

Posted by rogermilton on Nov 1 2014 - 3:51pm

Currently two options are under consideration for Sea Base in 2015.  Basically the big boat and the bigger boat. The big boat will support a crew of up to 8.  The bigger boat supports from 18 to 20.  Currently we have 15 individuals who have delivered a check to the treasurer and reserved a spot.  We are actively seeking additional participants to lower the cost and potentially give us a shot at the bigger boat.  Both are exciting adventures.  To participate a scout would have to exit the eighth grade in May of 2015.   If interested, deliver a check for $100 to Mr. Rueter as soon as possible.  We will be committing to a particular option in January.  Mr. Milton
