Welcome to our Troop and Crew!

Thank you for coming to our Webelos Open House on Monday, January 23, 2017.

If you missed or have questions, please feel free to contact us (link to the left) or come to any regular Monday meeting from 7:15 to 8:30pm.

Troop 1577 prides itself on being a youth-run, patrol-based, outing-focused, skills-oriented Troop. Its goal is to develop young men with strong values and practiced leadership skills. Scouts and crew elect their own leaders, who plan and execute activities--including meetings and outings--under adult leader supervision. This is a very important part of learning essential leadership skills. The program allows scouts to fail at times and to learn from these failures. The goal is to help the young men to become tomorrow's leaders. The Troop is also focused on having fun! This is accomplished by encouraging scouts who are leaders to think outside the box and to come up with interesting things to do -- whether it is exploring caves, riding rapids in canoes, backpacking, or high adventure activities.

The Troop is complimented by a Venture Crew for young men and young women aged 14 and above. Crew 1577 is focused on challenge, outdoor experiences, and high school-age level activities.

Meetings are on Monday evenings from 7:15 to 8:30pm at our Chartered Organization:
Trinity Presbyterian Church, 651 Dranesville Road, Herndon, VA 20170

Boys aged 10+ interested in the Troop and boys and girls aged 14+ interested in the Crew and their parents are always welcome to come visit and learn about Troop and Crew 1577.

Personal Management and Personal Fitness Merit Badges

Posted on Jul 29 2017 - 10:20am

If you are interested in beginning the Personal Fitness or Personal Management merit badges, please let Stephen Rea and Gabe Ratcliffe know. These badges are Eagle required, fairly involved, and take awhile to complete. They are also best tackled with a group of scouts since it's more fun to work on as a group, and everyone can learn and benefit from each other.

Medical Forms

Posted on Jan 11 2015 - 1:38pm

BSA has released NEW 2014 medical forms to replace the 2014 medical forms they released last year. BOTH forms are acceptable for 2014 but the newer 2014 form will be required starting January 1, 2015. So, when your Scout goes in for an annual physical, be sure to get the right form filled out.
