Welcome !

Welcome to Troop 1131 in Burke, VA! We are chartered by St. Stephens United Methodist Church.

We strive to organize a traditional Boy Scout Troop to serve youth in our area and insure every Scout and Leader has "world-class" experiences in a physically and socially safe environment that reinforce the timeles values of Scouting.

Sorry for the confusion.  It turns out Klondike (24-26 Jan 2020) is much cheaper than I said. 
The per scout fee for Klondike is $25 per scout, not $125 as I misreported at the last meeting, SORRY!!!

Klondike Derby - Jan 2020 - Be Prepared for Winter Camping

Posted on Nov 30 2019 - 11:17pm

The Patrol Leaders' Council (PLC) has decided we will attend a Klondike Derby this January. 

Klondike Derby (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klondike_derby) is a traditional Winter Camping experience for BSA, Scouts Canada, and other Scouting organizations, originally created to commemorate the Klondike Gold Rush into the Yukon territory of Canada in the late 1800s.  Ours will be in Potomac Maryland in late January, so highly likely to be less extreme, and likely even without snow (Likely not entirely unlike our January "Winter Games" campout last year).  The Scouts will, however, prepare a sled and survival gear, learn some cold-weather camping skills, and meet scouts and troops from our neighboring Potomac District.
