Welcome !

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.

Dear Troop:
Just some info for this weekend:
