Welcome To Troop 161 -

Troop 161 was chartered on March 13, 1927 and has a rich history spanning over eight decades. We serve youth living and going to school in the neighborhood of Clifton and the surrounding area in Cincinnati, Ohio. We meet year round on Tuesday nights from 7:00 until 8:30 at Calvary Episcopal Church, 3766 Clifton Ave. We have at least one overnight activity a month and at least one week of Scout Camp in the summer. See the "About Us" section for more information about the Troop.

Our annual (COVID not withstanding) caving trip is happily looming on the horizon!  Warren High has received confirmation that we have reservations at the Great Salt Petre Reserve to go caving on August 6th.  We will leave the church on 8/5, cave all day on 8/6 and return on 8/7.  

Details will be forwarded in the coming weeks, but we need to start a head count of who is going now!  This is a great event for not only scouts, but relatives, siblings, other adults, etc to attend.  There's a form (linked here and up above) for each scouting family to fill out here to get a head count.  If any family has more than 4 non-scout members attending, please let us know!!
