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.

Boy Leadership

Posted on Aug 27 2017 - 12:05pm


This is a boy-run troop. Boy leaders plan and execute their own program, with parent participation and support. New Scouts begin with small jobs under the guidance of more experienced Scouts. As their skills and knowledge improve, new responsibilities are given to them.
Learning leadership skills is one of the most important products of being a Boy Scout. Troop 54 has a Junior Leader Training program for the boy leaders. Each Scout will learn the skills needed to carry out his job in the Troop and will learn how to pass those skills on to other boys.
The Patrol Leaders' Council consists of the members of the Senior Patrol (the oldest and most experienced Scouts) and the Patrol Leaders of each patrol. This group meets monthly with the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters to plan Troop meetings and outings.

Monthly Outings

Posted on Aug 5 2017 - 9:25pm

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 even be selected for travel to England as part of the USA - England Exchange Program, continuing a tradition that began over 30 years ago.
