Spring Court of Honor

The troop held its Spring Court of Honor at the Scout House. Several rank advancements and many merit badges earned, and three scouts learned they’d been selected for Order of the Arrow. Our emcee, pictured, did a great job!


Eagle Scout Projects

April adventures, part 3 & 4 – here’s a sneak peek at a couple Eagle Scout projects. Our first eagle scout project will benefit Falls Church High School. This is the first of three Eagle Scout projects slated for completion this spring and summer! For our second Eagle Scout project, scouts painted a rainbow mural at the Center for Autism and Related Disorders in Arlington.


Naval Academy Merit Badge Day

April adventures, part 2 – scouts spent the day at the US Naval Academy, participating in a STEM Jamboree organized by the midshipmen’s National Eagle Scout Association club. A long but fun day.


Elizabeth Furnace Campout

First spring campout, at Elizabeth Furnace. It was 60 degrees when we arrived Friday evening, 18 degrees when we woke up Sunday morning! Yeah, it was cold. Scouts hiked and worked on the camping merit badge.


Winter Court Of Honor

The troop had a great winter Court of Honor. Congratulations to all of the scouts who earned new ranks, merit badges, and other recognition. Among the merit badges were Railroading, Welding, and the new Citizenship in Society. The troop’s SPL earned a gold device for his National Outdoor Award, for camping 50 nights!


Axe Yard!

The weather finally cooperated last weekend, and we were able to set up the axe yard. Great instruction from one of our more senior scouts – four more scouts now have their Totin’ Chip and completed some rank requirements.

Pancake Breakfast

The troop hosted a pancake breakfast for our chartering organization, the Falls Church Presbyterian Church. First one since 2020 – everyone was happy to see the return of the tradition.

January’s camping trip in Pennsylvania

Cabin camping, visiting the Railroad Museum of PA, and riding Strasburg Rail Road’s steam train. Scouts worked on the railroading merit badge.
