Together with Cub Scout Pack 657, the troop collected 4,350 pounds of food for Columbia Baptist Church’s food pantry. Thank you to our generous Falls Church neighbors for giving such a large amount of donations.
This summer the scouts attended summer camp at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. Highlights included kayaking, fishing, climbing, and whitewater rafting in the New River Gorge. Scouts had a great time!
Founded in 1957, Scout Troop 895 has been supporting the youth of the Falls Church, Arlington, and Fairfax, Virginia communities for sixty-five years. We are chartered by the Falls Church Presbyterian Church. Our troop focuses on delivering the Scouting program of teaching citizenship, leadership, and confidence building life skills in an outdoor environment. We strive to maintain a scout-led organization. Scouts plan and execute the program each year to include meetings, outdoor activities, service projects, and summer camps.
We actively participate in scouting high adventure programs at Philmont, Seabase, Northern Tier, and Summit Bechtel. Additionally, it is a troop tradition to take a “Big Trip” every four years. We plan a two-week excursion with one week touring the area, and a second week at a local scout camp. Our trips have included locations such as Black Hills South Dakota, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, Colorado, and the Pacific Northwest. In 2023 the troop will be heading to Colorado!
