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.

Long Term Camper Pins have arrived

Posted by rogermilton on Mar 28 2014 - 4:49pm

The troop has acquired a new pin signifying that a scout has completed a long term camping experience.  Those campers who attend summer camp for the first time this summer will receive it at the top of their mother's ribbon this Fall.  Other individuals who would like one should give Mr. Rueter a check for $5 at the Court of Honor.  Mr. Milton will be wearing it on his uniform.  The design is the attached JPEG.
