About Troop 54

Troop 54 is one of the older Boy Scout Troops in the area, with a long history of excellence and service for more than 65 years. The Troop meets 7:00 to 8:30 PM, Thursday evenings, usually at our Boy Scout Hall, 317 Lake Blvd, Lindenwold NJ. Meeting activities planned by the Scouts themselves include learning and practicing Scouting skills, planning trips and special activities, working on merit badges or other projects of interest to the Scouts, games, and fun. The Troop is divided into a number of patrols of 4 to 8 boys. If enough Webelos Scouts join the Troop at one time, they will form a New Scout patrol, with an experienced older Scout as Troop Guide, to work on basic Scouting skills and advancement. Otherwise, the Patrol Leaders work with the New Scouts to teach them the skills they will need.

Monthly Outings

Posted on Jan 7 2017 - 7:02pm

Troop 54 has a year-round outings program, with an overnight outing every month planned by the Scouts themselves. In addition, the Troop or any of the patrols may plan day hikes or other activities during the year. Go to the Activities Page for a taste of the program planned by the Patrol Leaders' Council and the patrols. Because of our active camping program, we offer Scouts the opportunity to participate in seasonal sports without their feeling left out of the Scouting program.
The Troop outings program is designed to provide the Scouts with fun, new skills, and advancement. In addition to meeting requirements for advancing in rank, outings provide opportunities for earning merit badges, including Camping, Cycling, Hiking, Cooking, Backpacking, Pioneering, Orienteering, Wilderness Survival, and many others.
Older Troop 54 Scouts may travel to England as part of the USA - England Exchange Program in 2012, continuing a tradition that began over 30 years ago.
