Welcome to Troop 875 !

Boy Scout Troop 875 belongs to the National Capital Area Council, Old Dominion District. Established in 1964, we are one of the oldest, continuously serving Troops in the region. Troop 875 is a boy-led adult-advised Troop. All of the programs are planned and executed by the Boy Scouts themselves, with experienced adult leaders available to advise and ensure that all activities are conducted in a safe manner. The main objective of the Troop is to encourage and support the scouts as they develop the lifelong skills of citizenship, leadership and self-reliance, while having lots of fun along the way.
