Special Instructions for
Scouting During Covid-19

Effective in March 2022, Troop 54 relaxed its mask policy in line with the policy of St. John the Divine, Troop 55 and of our local schools.  Masks are now optional during Troop meetings, patrol meetings and other Troop events.  Those who are not fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to continue wearing a mask for Troop meetings and other close-quarters contact in groups.  Everyone is welcome to continue wearing a mask, and we urge families to make their own decision on this taking into account family circumstances.  Additionally, van pools will also return as a transportation option starting with Troop 54’s E-Rock campout in April 2022.  The Troop 54 Committee will continue to revisit our Covid response monthly.


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.
