BSA Troop 540

About Us

    A boy run troop, Troop 540 provides youth an opportunity to grow mentally, physically, and socially, and to build character, foster citizenship, and develop leadership through a diverse and dynamic program.

    Troop 540 offers a full range of scouting activities including weekly Troop meetings, monthly weekend outings, service projects to the community, a full week of Summer Camp, and an annual high adventure activity. Outdoor activities embrace the complete scouting experience including: skiing and winter sports, white water rafting, field sports, pioneering, Maize Quest, Klondike, hiking and backpacking, theme parks, Splashdown, fishing, cooking, biking, beach camping, and much more! In addition, older scouts may attend annual High Adventure experiences, including Florida Sea Base, Philmont, Northern Tier, and National Scout Jamboree.

    Troop 540 is part of the National Pike District of the Baltimore Area Council. Our Scoutmaster is Mr. Larsson, who can be reached at 410-309-5997, or at guslarsson01@gmail.com

    The troop meets every Tuesday in the cafeteria of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, except when Schools are closed (But we still meet in June and July). Meetings are from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. We encourage all scouts to bring Dues - canned goods for the Service Patrol to donate to those who can't afford food. Contact our Scoutmaster if you are interested in joining us.
