Welcome to Troop 181:

Established in 1930 in Paoli, PA, Troop 181 has been nurturing and developing tomorrow’s leaders for more than 90 years. The founder of the Scouting movement, Lord Baden-Powell, called scouting “a game with a purpose.” The game is fun and adventure. The purpose is to teach leadership and values.  

We’re a moderate-sized but diverse boys’ troop of 20 to 30 scouts. A scout in Troop 181 is not lost among the masses and has opportunities to take on leadership roles.

Visitors are welcome at our troop meetings. The scouts meet at 7 PM Tuesdays at Berwyn United Methodist Church (BUMC) during the school year (except the Tuesday after monthly camping trips and any Tuesdays that fall during a school break at Tredyffrin/Easttown School District). 

Parents’ meetings are usually held at 7:30 PM the first Sunday of the month in the library at BUMC.

Camping trips and events in 2023-2024

Besides our regular meetings, Troop 181 has a camping trip or other event every month. (These dates are tentative, so the exact dates and itinerary will be shared at regular meetups)
