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. See the "About Us" section for more information about the Troop.

Update on where we are at

Lots to communicate.  Please read the entire e-blast.

Troop Activities:

In the next couple weeks, the Troop will be considering different ways to slowly and safely resume some limited functions.  Although there is no plan to begin regular Troop meetings in the very near future, we may have some limited activities.  Some of this depends on direction from the Council as well as directives from State and local governments.  Please stay alert for new messages.

The Troop is still here, staying safe. Staying home.

As you are probably aware, the Governor has extended the stay at home order through the end of the month. Although things are opening up slowly, we are still, for the near future, canceling all in person scout activities.  Please stay tuned to these e-blasts and e-mail from Announce@troop161.org if things change.
