Established in 1994, Troop 1577 prides itself on being a Scout-run, patrol-based, outing-focused, skills-oriented Troop. Our goal is to develop young men with strong values and practiced leadership skills. Scouts elect their own leaders, who plan and execute troop activities--including meetings and outings--under adult leader supervision. This is a very important part of learning essential leadership skills. Our program allows scouts to fail at times and to learn from these failures. Our troop's goal is to help our scouts to become tomorrow's leaders.
Our Troop also is focused on having fun! This is accomplished by encouraging our scouts who are leaders to think outside the box and to come up with interesting things to do -- whether it is running routine meetings, exploring caves, riding rapids in canoes, backpacking, or high adventure activities.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact us (link to the left) or come to any regular Monday meeting from 7:00 to 8:30pm.
The Troop is complemented by a Venture Crew for young men and women aged 14 and above. Crew 1577 is focused on challenging 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.
