About Us

Troop 117 is sponsored by the Westampton Recreation Department. We are open to any Scout who wishes to join our unit.  We currently have Scouts from Westampton, Willingboro, Burlington Twp and Burlington City. We encourage Scouts to visit units they are considering joining to see if it is a good fit for them.  Our meetings are open to visitors.  We meet every Wednesday night, from 7pm to 8:30pm.  One Wednesday a month we have our PLC instead of a Troop meeting.

As a unit, we are very active in camping, hiking and many other scouting activities including regional and national camporees. We particapate in many council and district run events - sometimes running a station, other times taking part as a participant.  We also help out at events spoonsored by our charter. Our scouts are also active in the Order of the Arrow.

Many of our scouts have also gone through NYLT.  Ryan, who recently attained Eagle, has served on NYLT staff since 2014, most recently in the role as Mentor to the Pine Tree SPL.  He currently serves on the Council level for Venturing.

Our leaders are all trained for their position with three of our leaders - Scoutmaster, Committee Chair, and one of our Committee Members - being Wood Badge trained.  Our Committee Chair works on the council level as a Wood Badge Trainer and is the 2019 Wood Bage Course Director.

Our Troop Committee meets at least every other month, normally on a Monday night. All parents and guardians are welcome.
