Welcome to 116

Troop 116 is a co-ed Scout troop and Venture Crew that has served the youth of the greater Cheltenham area for more than 100 years. Our program, which has graduated 89 Eagle Scouts, emphasizes fun, outdoors and leadership skills, fun, community service, fun, teamwork, and fun.

We have a particular focus on high adventure trips, from weekends of hiking, camping, skiing, kayaking, and biking to epic summer trips sailing the Florida Keys, climbing glaciers in Alaska, rafting the Colorado River, road-tripping across North America (all 50 states and 8 Canadian provinces), and exploring Europe.

We meet Thursdays, 7:30pm, at Calvary Presbyterian Church in Wyncote, PA.

Join us for the adventure of a lifetime. General inquires: scoutmaster@scouttroop116.com
