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.

Anthony's Eagle Project - 10/2/2021

Posted on Sep 20 2021 - 6:46pm

Come help restore the wilderness as we deconstruct a disused playground behind Sacred Heart Church on Purcell Road in Manassas on Saturday, October 2.  The project site is behind the church.  You can park or drop off behind the church or in front and walk around the left side of the church as you are facing the front of the church (the project site is in the woods on the northwest side of the church).  The site is wooded low ground and there can be a lot of mosquitos so long pants, long sleeves, and insect repellant is recommended.  The project will involve disassembly of both wooden and metal playground structures, removal of concrete anchors, and loading refuse for movement to the Prince William County Landfill.  All volunteers should bring work gloves and wear sturdy shoes or boots.  The area is shaded but can be hot so sunscreen may not be needed but water bottles are required.  I would ask volunteers to bring cordless impact drivers with #2 Philips and T25 star bits.  Other tools that will help with disassembly are wrenches or ratchets for 3/4-inch nuts and bolts and a 1/4-inch hex bit (allen socket) for removing button-head socket cap screws.  I will have tools to do every task but more tools will make the work go faster.  I am predicting that we will have one or two pick-up truck loads of refuse that will need to be taken to the landfill and am asking for adults with trucks to volunteer.  Please sign up if you can volunteer and list tools or trucks you can provide in the "notes" box.  I will have food for lunch and refreshments for those who sign up so please come help.

Fitness Day

Posted on Sep 8 2021 - 3:13am

Beginning Sunday, September 12, 2021, the Troop Fitness Committee will hold a Troop Fitness Activity at Saunders Middle School from 2pm until 3:30pm (or as long as activities require).  Scouts who are working on fitness-related requirements for advancement (rank) or merit badges (Personal Fitness, Athletics, etc) should sign up to attend.  Scouts will be able to complete requirements such as fitness tests as well as meet with adult leaders and counselors.  We will hold this recurring event on the second Sunday of every month to give Scouts access to resources and predictability. It is important that Scouts sign up on the Troop website; we will hold this event as long as at least one Scout signs up. If we need to postpone or cancel, we will only contact participants who have signed up.

High Adventure Group Day 5
 
 
 For the last day of program our crew did some BMX bike and skateboard riding.   We fortunately escaped with only a few bumps and scraps.
 
We ended the day with a quick closing and we're ready to head out in the morning.  We should be on the road NLT 8am and hope to be home before 1pm.  I'll update everyone regarding our departure time and ETA as we get closer.  I'm bringing home Scott and Ben and would like to meet you at the LJVFD.
