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 1195 Annual Outlook

Posted on Apr 3 2021 - 12:29pm

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 April, we be working on Fishing and Wildlife Management to include the Trout-o-ree.
In May, we will be going Whitewater rafting!

Posted on Mar 21 2021 - 7:00pm

Troop 1195:

On behalf of the entire Troop 1195 Leadership Team, Mr. Stern, Mr. Marks and I could not be more proud of your tremendous efforts today. In 10 hours, we delivered 7,889 bags of mulch, cleaned up the school grounds/parking lot, and made multiple trips to the Prince William County Landfill.
This really was a phenomenal effort and would not have been possible without all of the Scout, Parent and Sibling volunteers. 
Mulch Czar - Bob Marks. Outstanding as always. Extremely well organized and so efficient with the forklift.
Deputy Mulch Czars - Lisa Marks and Rana Kahl
Food/First Aid assistance- Kim Bonifera, Steve Malloy, Rose Ann Stern and puppies
Yard Crew - Duffett family; Kim family; Stern brothers x 2; Bob Claessen; Ken Ogden and Jeff Poisson.

Drivers:  Jason Bock, Jim Boltz, Vince Bonifera, Bert Clements, Jerry Gladwell, John Grill, John Grusha, Allan Hand, Thom Hildebrand, Kevin Kahl, Randy Peery, Scott Rehrig, Brad Schaller, Matt Stern, Claudius Stewart, Ken Sturch, Chris Woodburn, and David Wright. 

All of the Scouts, Parents, Siblings and Friends not otherwise listed - thank you so much for taking on this herculean task and knocking this out today.
Well done all!

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.
