Special Instructions for
Scouting During Covid-19

Troop 54 has a three-level plan for conducting the BSA program during Covid-19.  This is based on a Red, Yellow and Green phased system.  The current phase is re-visited by the Troop Committee regularly, and agreed based on circumstances at the time and guidance from relevant authorities.

As of August 2021, all scouts and adults are in Phase Yellow regardless of vaccination status.  This means Trooop 54 will continue all the same safety protocols we followed for campouts in the last school year.  The only difference is that we will allow in-person meetings of any size.  All participants at the meetings (which can be held inside or out) must be masked and maintain safe distances.  For a further explanation of the three-level plan and the Current Phase, click here.

Troop 54’s special rules for how scouts and adults can participate in campouts when in Yellow Phase can be viewed here.

The medical checklist used for screening at campouts and other events can be viewed at this link.

Scouts in Troop 54 can continue to work on rank advancement and merit badges during the Covid-19 period if/when the troop is not holding group meetings.  For special instructions, click here.

Scouts at T-54 have produced videos to help new scouts learn the skills required for Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class.  For access to those videos, click on "First Class Trail" in the index.


Leadership Agreements

Exercising leadership is a key part of Scouting, and scouts are required to actively serve in a leadership role for advancement to Star, Life and Eagle.  The troop has developed descriptions of the various leadership roles and formal Leadership Agreements to document the expectations for these positions of responsibility.  For details, click on "Youth Leadership" in the index or click here.


Troop 54 Store
Troop 54 has created a site where families can pay annual dues, register for campouts, purchase neckerchiefs or name tags, donate money and more.  To access the T-54 Store, click Store.


Troop 54 was formed in Feb 2019 for girls.  St John the Divine Episcopal is sponsoring this new troop.  This church also sponsors Pack 55, Troop 55 and Crew 55, which are amoung the largest and most active units in the country.

Troop 54 meets on Monday nights in the Scout Room at SJD.  Membership is open to any female who is at least 11 years old and not yet 18.  As with the other units sponsored by SJD, we welcome members from all religious backgrounds and from any school.  Parents are encouraged to be active in the troop after the appropriate BSA training.

To join Troop 54, please contact the Scoutmaster or the Registrar, or attend one of the weekly Troop Meetings.  Prospective members and parents are welcome to visit any of the Monday meetings.
