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.

Uniform Reminder for Troop Meetings

Posted by admin on Dec 15 2017 - 1:59pm

The mandatory uniform for troop meetings during the winter months is Class A. This is the khaki dress shirt, tucked in, green scout pants and proper belt, socks and shoes. Please dress appropriately.

Here is a reminder for Board of Reviews from the BSA Guide to Advancement:
It is preferred a Scout be in full field uniform for any board of review. He should wear as much of it as he owns, and it should be as correct as possible, with the badges worn properly. It may be the uniform as the members of his troop, team, crew, or ship wear it. If wearing all or part of the uniform is impractical for whatever reason, the candidate should be clean and neat in his appearance and dressed appropriately, according to his means, for the milestone marked by the occasion.
