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.

Wilderness First Aid Course

Posted on May 17 2021 - 3:06pm

Unfortunately, the course provider is unable to resource the in-person session we hoped to host at the firehouse.  Those who registered for the hybrid class can still complete the online portion and then attend any scheduled in-person session with CWS (subject to space availability; the sooner participants complete the online portion and pass the test, the sooner they can claim available seats for an in-person session).  In-person session dates and locations are posted on the CWS website (there could be several on Jun 12 as there were no instructors available to come to us).
