About Troop 895

Troop 895 has been active in Falls Church since 1957 and continues its tradition of guiding boys through the scouting program. Sponsored by the Falls Church Presbyterian Church, and part of the National Capital Area Council of Boy Scouts of America, the Troop has over 80 active members aged 11-18.  All funds raised by the mulch sale ensure the quality of its continuing program.

In the past year, members from the Troop have had the opportunity to experience a wide range of outdoor activities including hiking, rifle shooting, pioneering, skiing, winter camping and canoeing. The Troop is also committed to service in the local community and participates in the semi-annual clean up of Falls Church City and placing flags on the graves of veterans at the National Memorial Park. Troop 895 recently adopted the care and maintenance of The Veterans Common on the W & OD Trail at Little Falls Street where on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, they conduct and participate in Flag ceremonies to remember and honor our veterans.

    Since the Scouts continue to be intolerant of gay folks you can rest assured they will NOT get my business nor my support. It is sad that this institution is a needs to just go away.

    Mr. Plymire, you have the right to your opinion, but the funds raised by the local troops, including Troop 895, are used for program opportunities offered to the local boys, so you are punishing the local kids. You must admit that the good things that the Boy Scout program offers to young men far outweigh the negative side we see being argued by adults. You might also like to know that Falls Church Presbyterian Church, the chartering organization for Troop 895, Pack 657 and Venturing Crew 836, wrote a letter to the national organization objecting its current position stating: “Our church, however, firmly believes that discrimination, whether in terms of race, gender, creed or sexual orientation, has no place in our community or nation, and this should include our Scouting organizations.” I personally hope the national organization will decide to welcome Scouts and leaders regardless of their sexual preference.
