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.

Mitchell Peery's Eagle Project

Posted on May 21 2022 - 6:34pm
My Eagle Scout Project will be held on Saturday, May 28, 2022, starting at 8am (donuts will be provided), at Living Water Worship Center Church located at 16211 Lee Highway, Gainesville, Virginia.
 
For my project, we will be painting two wooden railings, staining a small wooden porch and 10ft x 5ft ramp outside the church, and replacing a wooden plank by the porch.
 
The project will take at least 11 scouts, but the more help the better! 
 
If you plan to attend, bring working gloves, a water bottle, and wear clothes you don't mind getting paint on.
 
Thanks, 
Mitchell Peery

Physicals. Every Scout and Adult must turn in BSA Physical Forms in order to attend camp.

All BSA Annual Health & Medical paperwork (attached to this announcement) needs to be turned in to Jason Bock no later than July 11, 2022. Make three copies – one for Jason for summer camp, one for Mr. Stern to keep for use throughout the year and one for yourself.

Adults – all adults attending summer camp must be registered adults and complete Youth Protection Training. Please visit the National Capital Area Council website, complete an online application, print and sign the application and hand it in to Kim Bonifera.

Cyberchip

Posted on Jun 23 2021 - 1:14pm

     It's that time of year when we think about Cyber Chip (we have first year Scouts who just moved from 5th grade to middle school and older Scouts who are now rising high school freshmen).  All Scouts who have not earned Scout or Star rank must earn the Cyber Chip for their grade (either 6th thru 8th -OR- 9th thru 12th).  Earning the Cyber Chip Award "for your grade" is advancement requirement 6 for both Scout and Star ranks.  It's also a requirement for some merit badges such as Digital Technology, Photography, and Programming. Scouts who want to earn the Cyber Chip during the next few weeks will complete requirements based on their grade for the 2021-2022 school year.
