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 timeless values of Scouting.

Troop PLC Planning

Posted on Aug 15 2021 - 9:30pm

Scouts, only two weeks until we kick off our first meeting of the year! Your PLC has worked hard to put together an exciting calendar and we can't wait to roll it out at our first meeting on September 1. We may be in masks, but are looking forward to meeting in person. The PLC is working through current restrictions to host an icebreaker at the local bowling alley on August 25th -- watch for details. We are also planning our first trip of the year -- caving at Laurel Caves the weekend of September 17-19 -- and support to the Fairfax Rod and Gun Club on September 11-12. It's going to be a good year for Scouting!

One Key Piece of Gear all Scouts may want to have: a 20-30L thin nylon drysack

Posted on May 2 2021 - 7:34pm

All scouts should have a lightweight thin dry sack to stuff their personal gear, change of clothes, etc., inside to keep them dry.  These sacks usually cost about $25, and work for years.  They can be used inside a backpack, inside a duffle bag, inside your daypack, or by themselves.  A sack between 20 and 35L is a good size for scouts to use and stuff inside their backpack or duffle bag.
