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. If you have any questions or you want to request more information about joining the Troop, just click on Contact Us in the menu to the left to send us a message.

 

It's time once again to pay our annual dues so the Troop can remain, in short, a Troop.   Fees this year as $95.00 for Scouts and $45.00 for adults.   Based on input from the scouts, we are NOT automatically subscribing every scout to Scout Life (formerly Boy's Life).  If you wish to continue (or start) a subscription, the cost is $12.00 extra, so $107.00 total.
This year, we will need payment before we submit our annual Charter to the scouts to set our roster.  The charter is due on 12/10, so we really need payment before that date.  
The best way to pay is through the Troop 161 Venmo account:  
  • From Venmo, locate BSA Troop 161 (that's our account)
  • In the memo, please include the name of the scout(s) and adult(s) you are enrolling
  • In the memo, also alert us if you wish to have the subscription to Scouts Life.  Since we are no longer offering this by default, if you don't mention it, you won't get it. 
 
If you cannot pay via Venmo, please reply to this e-mail, or contact our business manager, Jason Alexandar, directly at troop161treasurer@gmail.com or via text at (513)503-7422.
 
Yours in Scouting
 
The Leadership of Troop 161

It's Annual Re-Charter Time

Posted on Oct 31 2021 - 9:47pm

Every year, each troop in the Dan Beard Council must submit a re-chartering application.  Part of this process is enshuring our Troop Roster is current and up to date with the Council.  We will be reaching out to all our scouts to check on thier status in the troop. Over the coming couple of weeks, you may receive an e-mail or text from Dave Wittenauer to see how you're doing. If you haven't been in a meeting in a few months, we'd love to see you.
