Troop 1195

Boy Scout Troop 1195 is a unit of the Bull Run District of the National Capital Area Council of Scouts. We are chartered by the Lake Jackson Volunteer Fire Department and meet at the fire station at 11310 Coles Rd. in Manassas, Virginia. Weekly meetings are held on Monday evenings at 7 PM.

We are a boy run troop. To encourage and nurture leadership skills, the adults in the troop supervise, but do not lead the scouts in their advancement in ranks. The scouts are divided into patrols of 6 to 8 boys. For support of new scouts, we have senior Boy Scout and numerous Assistant Scoutmaster's help guide first-year advancements.

In addition to weekly troop meetings, the Troop conducts monthly campouts year round and participate in summer camps, both in Council at the Goshen Scout Reservation and out.

If you would like more information or if you are interested in visiting or joining the troop, please drop us an email by clicking on "Contact Us" in the Menu section on the left.

"Outdoor" Merit Badge Day was a Success!

Posted on Jun 21 2016 - 9:16am
Thank you to all of the leaders and counselors that came out to make the "Outdoor" Merit Badge Day a success!

Lunch was fantastic as Mrs. Bonifera presented a spread of pizza, fruit and chicken tenders.

In the afternoon, Mr. Jurack was able to keep his Indian Lore Commanchees at bay while Mrs. Mark's Photographers chased a single butterfly all over the campground!

As the afternoon wound down and the majority of the Scouts went home, Mr. Stern started training a couple of Army Rangers to be for the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge. Having made fire without matches and cooking their own dinner, the Matt and Scott took on the task of making shelters to take on the night.

We haven't seen either one since . . .
