Troop 117

BSA Troop 117 is the oldest charted troop in the Wiley Post District of Last Frontier Council. The troop meets on Monday evenings at 7pm in the Generation Putnam City UMC fellowship hall. In addition to weekly meetings, the troop camps monthly, performs community services, and participates in popcorn and Blue & Gold meat product fundraisers.

Troop 117 alternates summer activities between attending in-state week-long summer camp at Kerr Scout Ranch in Tishomingo and out of state trips to Nation Parks. The troop has visited Zion National Park, the Smokey Mountains, The Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, and more over the years. In 2020 they completed a float trip on the Rio Grande during Spring Break.

The Scoutmaster is Scott Bjorklund.
