Troop 91

Who we are and what we do

Troop 91 is proud to be celebrating more than 50 years of Scouting. Troop 91 was originally chartered on March 8, 1949, at the State St. Baptist Church, Cayce (1949-1952) under Scoutmaster H. M. Bowers. Later Scoutmasters included John Robie Elliott, Lester Elliott, Prentice Love, Carl Payne Jr., Joseph K. Carter, Richard (Dick) Hilton, Brent Garvin, Doyle Benjamin, and our present Scoutmaster, Jerry Hilbish.

Troop 91 is presently chartered at Seven Oaks Presbyterian Church of Columbia, South Carolina. We meet on Monday evenings at 7 pm and we camp every month. Our goals are to provide a challenging and enjoyable program of Outdoor Skills, such as Camping, Hiking, Backpacking, and Canoeing, plus citizenship and community service opportunities.

To visit the troop, please call Jerry Hilbish, Scoutmaster, at 750-0626 or email him at

The troop has moved around over the past 50 years, and the names and rosters have changed, but Troop 91 has remained dedicated to improving the lives of the boys and adults associated with it. If you are an alumnus of Troop 91, or know of someone who is, please click here or email the webmaster at
