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.

Scuba Diving Class Opportunity

Posted on Dec 2 2020 - 7:52pm
Parents and Scouts,

        I am inquiring to see if anyone might be interested in joining Leo Clements this winter to get his Scuba Diving Merit Badge and PADI Open Water Certification in time possibly for a dive trip next summer to sunny Florida. This course is NOT associated with Troop 1195 in any way or a Seabase trip. You would be signing up independently through Patriot Scuba in Woodbridge who have the instructors and merit badge counselors on staff. The total cost for the PADI course is $720 which includes equipment. There is an additional $50 equipment rental for the final open water dive requirement. You would be paying them directly.
        For those scouts who happen to already be certified and who would like to earn a Scuba Diving Merit Badge please let me know and I can try to help you get it. Most of the requirement is getting the scuba certification and having the Swimming Merit Badge. There is a worksheet that needs to be filled out and you will need to demonstrate to the merit badge counselor a basic knowledge of first aid and discuss the Scuba Diver's Code. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Mr. Clements

Troop 1195 Annual Outlook

Posted on Dec 2 2020 - 3:56pm

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.
This month, the Siberian Tiger Patrol teaches us how to Give Back and we plan to have our Merit Badge Day. Unfortunately, we will not be able to have our annual Lock In at the Freedom Center.
