Troop 1853 - Summer Camp 2019

A Scout-Run Troop, On the Go


COVID Update: We are conducting weekly online meetings via Zoom. However, we are conducting monthly in-person campouts with mitigation measures in place that include mandatory face coverings and social distancing

Contact the Scoutmaster via email at scoutmaster@troop1853.org for more details or if you would like to coordinate a visit.

Troop 1853 meets from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm every Tuesday at the Community Covenant Church, 7018 Sydenstricker Road, Springfield VA 22152.  Meetings are planned and run by the Scouts in accordance with the annual program developed by their Patrol Leaders Council (PLC) every June.  Every month has a program theme.

As a unit, the Troop camps one weekend a month - except for July which is summer camp.  The camping locations and the focus of activities during the outing are determined by the PLC.  In addition to these campouts, Scouts  often plan physically challenging high adventure trips. High adventure trips happen during Summer, Spring and Winter school breaks.  Patrol Leaders and Troop Officers also gather twice a year for an Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST). 

The troop has five vibrant patrols.  Each patrol buys its own food, cooks together, camps together, and shares responsibility for running a portion of the Troop meetings.  Patrols generally have their own meetings outside of the Troop meetings and may plan their own day or overnight trips.

                            Please contact our Scoutmaster - Mark Moyer for more information.  His e-mail address is:  scoutmaster@troop1853.org
