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.

Good afternoon Troop 1195:

     I wanted to thank all of the Scouts, Leaders, parents and siblings for supporting my Eagle Scout Project the past two weekends.Today, over the course of seven hours, we marked all of the holes for the bench posts, dug 32 holes (with getting electrocuted), placed all 16 benches at the tennis courts at Colgan High School, leveled them, poured concrete and re-sealed the bench tops. All of this work took an hour less than expected. I really appreciate each of you taking time to assist me with my Eagle Scout Service Project. I've attached a picture of the completed project.

Again, thank you very much for your support.

*WANTED* Qualified Parents to Step Up!

Posted on Oct 4 2017 - 11:17pm

With the continued evolution of our Troop and as our Eagle Scouts move on to new challenges, so to go our supportive merit badge counselors. And while it's not necessary for the Troop to have "in-house" counselors for every merit badge, it is a lot easier on the Troop and the Scouts if we do! So, the Troop committee is currently looking to fill in the gaps with some qualified adults that are within or near our immediate troop family. At the very least we want to have counselors in place for all of the Eagle required badges. The attached list shows our current counselors and the second one is condensed list of badges that we do not have counselors for. Interested individuals please contact committee members, PJ Jurack or Kim Bonifera for additional information and to sign up.
