Welcome to Troop 117

About Troop 117

Troop 117 is located in Plymouth Meeting, PA.  The troop serves boys ages 10 through 17 from the Whitpain, Plymouth Meeting, Whitemarsh, and Conshohocken areas.  We meet on Thursday nights at 7:00 PM in the Grady Hall portion of the Holy Rosary Regional school located at Epiphany Of Our Lord Roman Catholic 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 36 scouts and 10 adult leaders.  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. 

To join the Boy Scouts, a boy should either be 11 years old or have completed the Arrow of Light and be 10 years old.   New scouts usually join in the Spring which allows them time to participate in the weekend camping program before their first long term summer camping experience. 

The Troop usually has two long term camping experiences every summer and 7 to 9 weekend camping trips through the course of the year.
