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.

Patrol Equipment Inventory

Posted on Nov 21 2017 - 2:16pm

Thank you to the quartermasters that showed up last night to inventory your patrol gear.

- scouts need to be more familiar with their patrol gear; both knowing what they have AND what it’s for!
- patrols will keep two propane bottles, one in the Chuck Box for the STOVE and one in the Black Bin for the LANTERN
- much of the cooking gear from Turkey run was still wet and/or slimy
- there are copper scrub pads and scrub brushes for the cast iron cookware, The Brillo pads (steel wool w/soap in it is NOT to be used on cast iron)
- wet sponges stored with steel wool make an awful rusty mess
- per the sheets all Patrols have 99% complete chuck boxes

Still to be completed:
- Dragons had no representation and thus their gear has not yet been inventoried.
- chuck box legs need to be divided by Patrol and bundled together
- lanterns and grills need to be cleaned and maintained (burnt dining fly scraping off lanterns, wind block wings on grills)
- a few small items need to be replenished from the troop.
- large Zip-lok bags are needed to protect oil and soap bottles.
- additional shopping bags needed for cast iron “covers”
- duct taped dining flys shall be permanently repaired (by Mr. Gladwell)

All in all, a very good start to an ongoing process!
