Newbury Park, CA
In 1972, six boys sat down and created the by-laws of Boy Scout Troop 754 in Newbury Park, California. At these founding meetings, the boys designed the Troop neckerchief. It is red, white, and blue with an American flag sewn on it. In our Troop, it is tradition that no scout may own his troop neckerchief until he earns the rank of Eagle Scout. Until that time, the neckerchief is merely on loan.
Today, Troop 754 is a boy-led troop with activities that emphasize and develop Character, Leadership, and Service. Our charter organization, Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge #2477, has been a great support to the troop and several of the troop’s original Scoutmasters are Elks. We have a highly diverse troop and all faiths are welcome.
In the Summer, we meet Tuesdays from 7 to 8:30 pm at the DV Commiunty Center Picnic Area. The first Tuesday of the month is the troop Patrol Leader Council meeting (or PLC meeting) and only members of the PLC need to attend. The troop’s PLC plans a variety of adventures each year that often include winter camping, desert camping, backpacking, canoeing, pioneering, week long summer camps, deep sea fishing, days hikes, and the fellowship of outdoor fun.
