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.

To all the families who support their sons and Scouts, thank you. There are a lot of good things that compete for your time, and yet you take the time to encourage your youth to participate in Scouting. There are many of us who are in Scouting today because of the encouragement of caring parents. Thank you for doing your best to make Scouting a success in our Troop. Thank you, mom and dad!
To all the Scout parents who spend endless hours driving, sewing on patches, and helping complete merit badges – with enthusiasm and encouraging words. We thank you for your enduring service and care.
To the volunteers who spend time with other people’s children, so the world will be better for all of us. Thank you for constantly living as an example to the youth. Thank you for spending hours in training, and even more time in a sleeping bag –be it sun, rain, or snow. We thank you for teaching, leading and guiding the leaders of tomorrow.
To our sponsors who believe in our shared vision of creating young men who become forces for good, thank you. Your confidence and support for Troop 875 and the Boy Scouts of America has been meaningful and appreciated.
To the Scouts who work towards becoming worthy and able men, thank you. Thank you for living the Scout Oath and Law, even when the world may tell you to do otherwise. Thank you for being honorable young men who dedicate their time to service and “do a good turn daily.” Thank you for your spirit, smiles, and bravery. You make all we do worth it.

Sleepy Hollow United Methodist Church Supports Ride For Children

Posted by admin on Nov 23 2017 - 3:54pm

This year our sponsor, Sleepy Hollow United Methodist Church, is supporting Ride for Children as their Christmas mission project to provide toys to local children. Santa will temporarily trade in his sleigh and reindeer for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle police escort to deliver toys to children in local hospitals. This effort is sponsored by The Fairfax County Police Motor Squad, along with the Fairfax County Sheriff's office, Virginia State Police, Fairfax City Police, the Town of Vienna Police, and the Herndon Police.
If you would like to participate, here is how you can help:
1. Bring new, unwrapped toys, games, books or other gifts to SHUMC no later than Sunday Dec. 10. All donations will be taken to the Mason District police station that afternoon.
2. Or, if you prefer, you may write a check to SHUMC, memo “Christmas Toy Mission” and your donation will be used to purchase gifts to donate. Remember, the deadline for bringing new toys to SHUMC is Sunday December 10. If you are donating money, please do so soon so that we can purchase toys with donated funds.
3. Purchase a Christmas Poinsettia! Suggested price is $10.00, but if you would like to donate more, all proceeds will support the Christmas mission project to buy toys. Order your plant using the green order form that is in the Sunday bulletin - see Renee Miceli at a Monday troop meeting.
Thank you on behalf of SHUMC!

Uniform Reminder for Troop Meetings

Posted by admin on Nov 22 2017 - 7:44am

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.
