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 Lake Jackson Volunteer Fire Department and meet at the fire department building at 11310 Coles Road in Manassas, Virginia on Monday evenings at 7 p.m.

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. Like dens in the Cub Scout program, our boys are divided by age into patrols of 6 to 8 boys. New Scout patrols have a senior Boy Scout assigned as a guide and an Assistant Scoutmaster assigned to help guide first-year advancements.

In addition to weekly troop meetings, we have a monthly campout year round; participate in summer camp at Camp Olmsted on the Goshen Scout Reservation or Camp Rock Enon; and participate in high adventure activities, including Northern Tier and Philmont.

If you would like more information or if you are interested in visiting or joining the troop, please contact us at BSATroop1195@comcast.net or call Matt Stern (Scoutmaster) 703-670-2180 / scoutmaster@troop1195.org or Bob Marks (Committee Chairman) committee@troop1195.org.

Summer Camp - New Drop Off Location (Parents Picking-up at Food Lion Parking Lot)

Parents should pick up their Scouts returning from Summer Camp at the Food Lion, Subway parking lot, Dumfries & Hoadly Roads, at 9:30am, Saturday, July 18, 2015.  Individual drop offs aren't feasible because of the amount of gear that will be carried in numerous vehicles and the trailer.

They are planning to leave Camp Rock Enon at 7:00am and should arrive at the Food Lion, Subway parking lot by 9:30am.  If there is a delay, Mr. Stern will send an announcement.

Lake Jackson Lion's Club - Fundraising Opportunity

Posted on Jul 8 2015 - 9:49pm

Troop 1195 Scouts, Leaders and Parents,

The Lake Jackson Lion's Club has offered a fundraising opportunity to the Troop each month.  The second Saturday of the month, they host a Flea Market at their pavilion at the intersection of Hoadly and Dunfries (234) Roads.  As part of the Flea Market, we were given the opportunity to do some fundraising activities to support the Troop.

Sorry for the late notice, but they just confirmed that they want us to start this Saturday.

Mr Malloy has volunteered to make his "Coles Elementary Parking Lot Famous" breakfast sandwiches, but he will need help.  I know its bad timing with Summer Camp the next day, but we have the opportunity to raise money to fund more Whitewater Rafting trips and other fun activities.

The Troops needs your help - please step in and join us on Saturday at the time listed below:

6-8am 1 Adult, 2 Scouts
8-10am 1 Adult, 2 Scouts
10am-12pm 1 Adult, 2 Scouts

1 Adult to volunteer to get the supplies on Friday.

I will make sure we have coffee in the morning

Please let Mr Malloy or myself know if you can cover one of the time slots.

Summer Camp - Medical Form, Permission Slip and Departure Information

Posted on Jul 8 2015 - 9:49pm

Scouts and Parents

As a reminder there is no Troop Meeting tonight.  However, the Venture Patrol is meeting.

Also, this a reminder that we will meet at Food Lion, Subway parking lot, Dumfries & Hoadly Roads, at 10:00am, Sunday, July 12, 2015, for a 11:00am departure for Summer Camp.  Summer Camp is from 12 -18 July, at Rock Enon near Gore, Virginia.

I have attached the required Medical Form and Troop Permission Slip.  Please complete and bring a copy of the forms with you on Sunday.  All scouts are required to have a two copies of their completed Medical Form - failure to have them means the Scout cannot attend Camp. I need to know immediately if that is an issue.

Each Scout should bring a snack or sack lunch for the ride.  We do not plan to stop.  The trip is about 1.5 hours.

I have included the Leader's Guides for both Camp Rock Enon and Pinnacle Ridge Runners.  They have more details about Camp.  Most importantly, they have packing lists.  I also included the Troop Packing list for Summer Camp.  All Scouts need to have the proper gear for camp.  The big four are Water Bottles, Rain Poncho, bug spray and Sun Block. Pinnacle Ridge Runners must ensure they have all the gear they need to Trek through the Mountains of Western Virginia to include sturdy hiking boots/ shoes and a good backpack.  

If anyone has a question about the gear or packing list, please let me know via e-mail sternmaa@aol.com or phone call at 703-232-4018.
