Welcome to BSA Troop 196 on the Web!

Troop 196 is sponsored by the Telecom Pioneers. Troop 196 is part of the Pioneer District, within the New Birth of Freedom Council. The New Birth of Freedom Council is centered at: 1 Baden Powell Lane Mechanicsburg, PA 17050 717.766.1591


Our Troop meetings are held every Monday but the last, every month except July and August. The last Monday is Patrol Leaders Council (PLC), when the elected-youth plan the next months meeting content. We meet at the Hampden Township Recreation building. The regular troop-meeting time is 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (and PLC's are from 7:00 to 8:00). We typically have at least one overnight camp-out and one day-event per month, even during the Summer.
