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.

Top 10 Reasons to Tell People to Buy Mulch

Posted on Mar 23 2017 - 9:45pm

Top 10 reasons to tell people to buy mulch:
  1.  Weed control, moisture retention, blah, blah, blah
  2.  Mulch burns calories, Girl Scout cookies add calories
  3.  Please buy mulch, if you don't, I'll have to go back to selling Boy Scout popcorn
  4.  Our mulch has a nice pleasant odor, the other troop's mulch smells as bad as a Scout after a week of summer camp
  5.  Mulch builds character, especially when you are a 70 lb 5th grader trying to carry a 60 lb bag
  6.  Mulch delivery builds teamwork, see #5 above, it may take two 70 lb 5th graders to carry a 60 lb bag
  7.  The more mulch we sell, its fun to watch all the old dads tire out and the Scouts not even break a sweat
  8.  After moving 2000 bags, dads start to fight over the Advil bottle, fun times! 
  9.  If we sell 5000 bags, our SPL will wear yoga pants!
10.  Our troop performed over 625 service hours, we have fun camping, canoeing, rafting and climbing, but we also contribute to the community!
