Welcome to BSA Troop 171! Troop 171 is an active troop with weekly meetings on Monday evenings at 7pm. We meet at Otterbein United Methodist Church, 647 Forge Road, in Carlisle – right in-between the towns of Carlisle and Boiling Springs. We are part of the Pioneer District in the New Birth of Freedom Council of the Boy Scouts of America. As an active, boy-led troop, we hold Patrol Leader Council (PLC) meetings immediately prior to most Monday evening sessions with several adults supporting the youth leaders.
