Join Troop 114

Boy Scouting is for boys who are 11, or are at least 10 years old and have completed the fifth grade or have earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award, through 17 years old. Boys experience a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster to achieve the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness. Camping, fun with friends -- and more. It’s the adventure of a lifetime.

Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Boy Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.

We meet weekly on Sundays at the Islamic Center of Northern Virginia on Shirley Gate Road at 6 pm.   
For information contact Troop 114.

Joining Troop 114 is an important step for you and your son.  To ensure we are able to provide a quality program, we ask for a volunteer commitment from at least one parent for each family.  Unfortunately, if we don't have sufficient volunteers, we will be unable to provide a program.  We understand that you may have no familiarity with the Scouting program or have a tight schedule.  Don't worry, we will provide the training and support needed to get you fully trained and find a position that works for you.
