Troop 153 Fall Fundraisers

Since we cannot do our traditional sale in front of St. Agnes, Wawa, and other local shops, we are trying TWO fundraisers this year to help us pay for all our activities. Choose one or both!

Trail’s End

If you’d like to support Scouting by ordering popcorn online that will be safely mailed by Trail’s End directly to you, please visit our website. Not interested in popcorn yourself? Consider sending some to the American Heroes (troops and first responders)!

Brand New Eagle Scouts!

  • Jack A

  • Jake C

These Scouts have joined a long khaki line of St. Agnes Eagle Scouts in 2019.

It's the only rank designation which is forever in the present tense. "Once an Eagle Scout, always an Eagle Scout. "

Besides these two, the Troop is proud to share publicly that Shane R and Tommy T also earned Eagle in the recent months, bring Troop 153's number of Eagles to 100. Hooray!

Northern Tier: Mission Accomplished!

After almost two years of planning and preparation, Troop 153 made it to Northern Tier in the Minnesota Wilderness this past July/August. What a trip! Thanks to all who made it happen!

BSA Troop 153 Meetings

Meetings are held in St. Agnes Thomas Patrick Hall most Sunday evenings 6:30-7:30 or 8 pm during the school year.

Please check the calendar or meetings section as we do not have meetings during holidays or when we have trips.

Thomas Patrick Hall is the grey more-modern building located in the northeast corner of the St. Agnes block. (211 W. Gay st., West Chester PA 19380 is the address of the school).

You'll be entering from the parking lot behind the school(Prescott Alley), which is accessible from New St (Southbound) or Darlington St (Northbound), between Gay St (Westbound) and Chestnut st (Westbound).
