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.

Fitness Day

Posted on Oct 18 2021 - 5:20pm

    The Troop Fitness Activity will be held at Saunders Middle School from 2:00 PM until 3:30 PM on the second Sunday of every month.  Scouts who are working on fitness-related requirements for advancement (rank) or merit badges (Personal Fitness, Athletics, etc) should sign up to attend.  Scouts will be able to complete requirements such as fitness tests as well as meet with adult leaders and counselors.  We will hold this recurring event to give Scouts access to resources and predictability. It is important that Scouts sign up on the Troop website; we will hold this event as long as at least one Scout signs up. If we need to postpone or cancel, we will only contact participants who have signed up.

     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.
