Founded in 1951, Troop 654 is one of the oldest troops in the Colonial District of the National Capital Area Council. To date, over 180 Troop 654 Scouts have earned the rank of Eagle Scout. We are chartered by Saint Luke's Episcopal Church, in Mount Vernon, Virginia.
While the Scoutmaster and Adult Leaders are ultimately responsible, the Scouts handle the week-to-week leadership of the Troop themselves. We are a BOY RUN TROOP!
We offer an exciting program that promotes traditional values and character development. We also emphasize outdoor activities throughout the year.
Troop meetings are held most Monday nights from 7–8pm at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, on Fort Hunt Road, Alexandria, VA. Troop activities run from Sept through the first week of July. Rising Webelos join the Troop in late March.

After two years of service to the Troop as Scout Master, Mr. Brad Smith has stepped down from his leadership position. Thank you, Mr. Smith, for your dedication to the Troop. Your positive attitude and commitment has been an example for us all. The Scouts and Committee Members could always count on Scout Master Smith.
We welcome our incoming Scout Master, Fred ‘Winton’ Smith. Mr. Smith brings his 18 years of experience as a Scout and Adult Leader to Troop 654 with a great deal of enthusiasm. The Troop is ready to support you and thanks you for taking the helm.
