Summer Camps

Troop 54 has cancelled all three planned summer camps.  To provide alternatives, the troop is planning to offer the following:

  • In-person canoeing camp July 6-11 at San Marcos, TX - - - - (now cancelled)
  • In-person mid-adventure camp July 21-27 at BSA’s Sea Base, FL

Refund policy for the cancelled camps:  Troop 54 will refund to each family based on the amount that the troop receives from the camp and airlines.  The refunds will be handled separately for each camp.


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.
