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.

Troop Merit Badge Day

Posted on Nov 18 2019 - 7:13pm

The Troop Merit Badge Day will be held on December 7th, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM at the Lake Jackson Firehouse. 

There will be AM sessions (9:00 AM - Noon) and PM sessions (1:00 PM - 4:00 PM) with a lunch break in-between. Most merit badges will be just an AM or PM class although og the more in-depth badges like the Eagle required ones, will require attendance to both AM and PM sessions to complete. 

New this year… we are trying to get some MB counselors to come in during the lunch hour to just sign off on MB requirements that you have already completed.  We will post more on that later. 

The merit badge day is only 3 weeks away. Sign up online and at the next Troop meeting.

Additional information including the merit badges being offered can be found on the calendar event, here.
