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.

National Jamboree 2017: Zach, Landon, Max, ASM Gates, ASM Hardy

Posted by admin on Jul 21 2017 - 10:01am

We have a group of scouts and ASMs attending the National Jamboree, representing our troop as part of the contingent from Old Dominion District: Zach, Landon, and Max along with ASMs Mike Gates and Matt Hardy. ASM Gates will teach the Insect Study merit badge and ASM Hardy will teach the Traffic Safety merit badge. What a great adventure, we look forward to hearing all about it when they return!
So what is the National Jamboree? Held every four years, it has brought generations of Scouters together for more than 80 years. More than 30,000 Scouts and Scouters from all over the country will explore all kinds of adventures at one of the nation’s premier high-adventure bases at Summit Bechtel Reserve in WV. It's a great place to make new friends, attend high-energy stadium shows, earn merit badges, and experience adrenaline-raising activities such as mountain biking, BMX, skateboarding, canopy tours, challenge courses, zip lines, scuba, shooting and target sports, and kayaking and more! It is truly the best Scouting has to offer all in one place! http://www.summitbsa.org/events/jamboree/overview/

Used Jamboree Tents and Bikes for Sale!

Posted by admin on Jul 21 2017 - 9:53am

I just ordered a GT Mountain Distortion 3.0 mountain bike for approximately 80% off retail.
The primary focus of the post-Jamboree sale will be tents and bikes, but other items may become available as well. Visit this URL to see what is available: http://www.summitbsa.org/events/jamboree/overview/equipmentsale
Individuals can order BMX and mountain bikes as well as Coleman dome tents, but order soon as supplies are limited! All sales final and in as is condition.
I will be driving to Jamboree in a full size 8 passenger van, so can probably fit 3-4 bikes and numerous tents for the drive back. Please email me before you intend to order a bike so I can mark you down and keep a tally so I don't exceed my capacity.
Thanks!
