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.

Eagle Court of Honor on Sunday, May 16, 2021, from 4-6 pm @ Harris Pavilion, Manassas, VA

Posted on May 6 2021 - 11:00am
Due to the restrictions applied by the Governor during the COVID pandemic, we have not been able to appropriately recognize the five young men in Troop 1195/Venture Crew 1195 who earned the rank of Eagle Scout over the past year. Now restrictions are easing, Troop 1195 would like to hold an Eagle Court of Honor for Aidan Kahl, Matthew Bonifera, Joey Stern, Luke Clements and Jacob Ogden.
We have reserved the Harris Pavilion in Old Town Manassas on Sunday, May 16, 2021, from 3-6 pm for this ceremony (3 pm - 4 pm set up; 4 pm - 5 pm ceremony; 5 pm - 6 pm refreshments). Capacity for this event is 150, meaning each Eagle Scout family will have approximately 20-25 spots to invite family/guests. The remaining seats will accommodate the Scouts and adult leaders in the Troop.  
Our goal for this event is to recognize each Scout, have them take the Eagle Charge, receive their Eagle Rank/Medal, and be recognized by their peers and Troop. Light refreshments will be served following the ceremony. Scouts are expected to wear Class A uniform (shirts, pants - no shorts, merit badge sash, neckerchief and slide). Other guests are expected to wear church appropriate attire.

Troop 1195,

We are all looking forward to another year of Scouting with Troop 1195!
Although , we are still working through some limitations and constraints due to COVID-19 restrictions, we intend to fill the calendar with meaningful and fun activities, while keeping our Scout family safe and healthy.
We have been able to conduct several activities to include our 5 day mini-camp and a five day backpack trip without incident, injury or illness.  We believe that by maintaining the standards we have set, we will continue to provide great activities in the outdoors with our Scouts.
In May, we will be going Whitewater rafting!
In June, we will have Fun in the Sun!
