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.

Joey's Eagle Project Work Days

Posted on May 25 2020 - 1:14pm

Dear Troop 1195,

This is Joey Stern from the Dragons Patrol.
 
Thanks to everyone who helped on day one and two of my project!

Day 3 of my Eagle Scout project is Saturday, May 30th and I am in need of volunteers.
 
We are moving the playset, assembling it and staining it.  There will be a side project to building railing as well.
 
We will start at my house and load a couple trucks and trailers with all parts for the paly set.  We will move to the King's Chapel and complete the project!

Be prepared with work gloves, water, and masks for mitigating the risks of COVID-19.

If you wish to help out Saturday, starting 8:00 AM, then please sign up using this link:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/508084daba82aa31-joey

Thank you all for your support!

YiS,
Joey Stern

Bashore Scout Reservation Summer Camp - CANCELLED

Posted on May 19 2020 - 9:11pm

The Pennsylvania Dutch Council has made the very hard decision to cancel camp this Summer.

We know how much many of you were looking forward to returning to Bashore Scout Reservation! For our first year Scouts, you would have had the best memory of a great Scout Camp for your first Boy Scout Summer Camp.

For parents, we are asking for a full refund. Once we receive it, we will repay everyone or hold the deposit in your Scout's equity fund. Please let Scott Rehrig, the Troop Treasurer know what you want to do with the refund.

Annual Medical Part C Guidance

Posted on Apr 21 2020 - 7:58am
Here's the info for now on completing part C (basically, they're still thinking about it) . . . 

Q: What if I cannot get a new Part C, pre-placement exam because my healthcare provider is not taking well care exams now? 

We are evaluating all options while being mindful of those who have valid exams as well as those new members and adults who may have never completed a Part C exam, state and local authority requirements, and the special review required by high adventure programs. In the interim, we recommend that council health supervisors, camp staff, and volunteers begin a conversation on local availability of well exams and alternatives that could be put in place.
