Welcome to the official Troop 554 website.
If I could take one little child,
“Be Prepared… the meaning of the Motto is that a scout must prepare himself by previous thinking out and practicing how to act on any accident or emergency so that he is never taken by surprise.”
- Sir Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts
Be part of something Big: There have been more than 50 Million Boy Scouts / Venturers. The most merit badges were awarded for First Aid and Swimming.
“SCOUT LEADERS ARE LIKE TEACHERS… Elsie Boylston published in 1942 what is often referred to as The Teacher’s Creed:
And Make him feel the thrill
Of Sunset as it flaunts its hues
Above some distant hill;
If I could make him sense the joy
Of songbirds that he hears
And blend his happy laughter with
The music of the spheres.
I think that life would be worthwhile,
I would not live in vain,
If I could tune one human heart
To Nature’s sweet refrain.
Boy scout leaders are often seeking to instill the same love of nature that Miss Boylston portrays!
