BOY SCOUT TROOP 1344 BURKE, VIRGINIA
Prepared. For Life.
AMERICAN LEGION POST 176
We invite Webelos Scouts or Scouting-age boys and their parents to visit any of our troop meetings.
Our Troop Boy Scout Troop 1344 from Burke, Virginia was chartered in the Patriot District of the National Capital Area Council on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2005 and is sponsored by the American Legion Post 176 in Springfield, Virginia now over eight years. Our troop has over 15 registered members. We camp frequently during the year and attend summer camp. Our Scouts enjoy outdoor activities like camping and hiking. On at least one campout a year we challenge our¬selves with a high adventure activity. In addition to camaraderie and leadership, the boys learn and practice outdoor skills like camping, cooking, and orienteering on these trips. Most of our monthly trips are in the Northern Virginia area. On these campouts, we cook in patrols. Our troop has a wide range of equipment including tents, stoves, and other cooking gear for our troop and patrols. In addition to camping, our youth leaders plan varied activities and destinations each year. Other activities have included:
- Canoeing and Kayaking
- Whitewater Rafting
- Scuba Diving
During Cherry Run’s Renovation, the troop’s new meeting location is at Burke United Methodist Church, at Burke Center Parkway, and Burke Lake Road
Our troop meetings are held on every Monday night except school holidays, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Cherry Run Elementary School in Burke, VA. The school is located at 9732 Ironmaster Drive, Burke, VA.
The troop meets every other week in the months of July and August.
