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. Thank you for your interest in Troop 875. Please join us at one of our Troop meetings, select "About Us" at the left for more information. The main contents of this website are password protected.

Bicycles at Rodney Summer Camp: Safety Check Friday June 15th, 5 to 7:30pm @SHUMC

Posted by admin on Jun 15 2018 - 11:02am

The Camp Rodney Check-In next Friday June 15th will also be an opportunity to have a bicycle safety check conducted if you plan to bring a bicycle to Camp Rodney. All adults and scouts, except those participating in the Brownsea Program, may bring a bicycle to help them get around. Road bikes ARE NOT recommended for use at Camp Rodney. The safety check will ensure the bike is in good working order. We will not have the time or equipment to fix any problems that arise. Use of a bike at Camp Rodney requires front (clear) and rear (red) lights. Please ensure the bike you bring for the check-in has these lights installed and are working and that your scout brings extra batteries or a way to recharge the light batteries. Adults will not have any equipment with which to repair bicycles at Camp Rodney. If you bring a bicycle, you are encouraged to bring extra tubes, pump, and tools to fix flats and make adjustments as needed and can make these repairs (adults will be there to assist). Contact ASM Matt Hardy if you have any questions at mhh2424@gmail.com

Eagle Court of Honor for Warner, Justin, and Gabe: Monday June 25th

Posted by admin on Jun 15 2018 - 11:01am

Everyone is invited to join Warner Gates, Justin Fronda, and Gabe Andreyev and their families for their Eagle Court of Honor on Monday June 25th, as we pay tribute to these 3 Scouts for their prestigious Eagle Rank achievement. An Eagle Scout Court of Honor Ceremony recognizes the attainment of the highest possible rank in Boy Scouts, and one who achieves it will hold this status for life. In order to become an Eagle Scout, a boy must meet requirements in leadership and service, earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, and plan and execute an extensive service project. We graciously ask that all Scouts and their families attend the Eagle Court of Honor in respect and appreciation for what these boys have contributed to the Troop, the community and their fellow Scouts. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony. Class A uniform with neckerchief is required.
