Troop 111, chartered on July 31st, 1939, is sponsored by St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church, 1914 North Randolph Street, Arlington, VA. Within the Boy Scouts of America, we are part of the Chain Bridge District in the National Capital Area Council. The Troop meets on Monday nights from 7pm to 8:30pm in the main hall of the Parish Center. We are a large and very active Troop with approximately 100 Scouts and Adults.
The philosophy of the Troop is simple – we seek to take beginner Scouts and develop them into tough, socially responsible citizen-leaders with positive, can-do attitudes towards their own and America’s future. As an aid to this philosophy, the Troop runs an ambitious Scout-run outdoor/camping program, with at least one major (weekend) activity a month, plus a comprehensive Scout-run advancement program. The Troop also participates in several long-term camping trips every summer, including a BSA summer camp, a BSA high adventure trek (usually Philmont) and a Troop-developed high adventure trek (for example, biking the entire C&O Canal, SCUBA diving in the Virgin Islands, backpacking the entire Shenandoah National Park, etc.) Please refer to our calendar for a list of this year’s outdoor program.
Anyone interested in joining Troop 111, as a Scout or Adult leader, is invited to our Monday night meetings to meet the Scoutmaster, Chris Hopfensperger, and our Scouts. We look forward to seeing you there!
