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.

Scoutmaster Message

Posted on Sep 14 2016 - 7:16am

All Scouts need to find their Scout Handbooks and bring them to all meetings and campouts.  We have too many Scouts that are doing the work but not receiving credit because they are not getting their Handbooks annotated.  If the Handbook does not show the requirement completed as witnessed by a Scout leader, I will not conduct a Scoutmaster Conference.

Campouts are a great time to catch up on requirements and conduct SM Conferences and Boards of Review.

With the PLC being on Monday and the next week being the Fitness Troop Meeting, may still coordinate with Mr Bonifera to ensure their Scout Handbook reflects all of the activities from Summer Camp.

However, the biggest single issue in slowing down rank advancement is that every Scout is supposed to obtain their Cyber Chip.  We went over all the requirements during a Scout meeting.  If the Scout was present, the only thing left for them to do is to watch the age appropriate video on line at http://www.scouting.org/cyberchip.aspx.  Once completed, please send an e-mail to me and/or Mrs Bonifera to receive credit.

Scouts are responsible for their own advancement - but we are here to help.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Yours in Scouting,
Mr Stern
