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 or call Matt Stern (Scoutmaster) 703-232-4018 / or Bob Marks (Committee Chairman)
