Welcome to BSA Troop 414!

BSA Troop 414 meets every Monday at 7:00pm in the Fellowship Hall at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Norge, Virginia.

We are a medium-sized Troop with a variety of activities and scheduled monthly outings.

For our first year scouts, our focus is on rank advancement with a very exciting program, the objective being that every 1st year scout achieve First Class by the end of their first year. For our older scouts, we have many high adventure activities and opportunities for merit badges and rank advancement as well.

If you are looking for fun & adventure, then BSA Troop 414 might be for you! New prospective members of Troop 414 are invited to visit one of our Troop meetings to learn more and speak with the Scouts and adult leaders.

Interested youth may also begin the application process at BeAScout.org.

Spring Break Trip Input

Posted by admin on Aug 19 2016 - 11:40am

For the past few years, we've tried to schedule a Scout outing over Spring Break with little success. The upside to doing something over Spring Break is that you can go a little further than a normal weekend campout because of the extra time. However, we've found many families do something over break, which limits participation.

Rather than assume there isn't interest, I wanted to get a sense for who might be interested in a trip leaving Friday, 3/31 and returning Monday, 4/3. The locations suggested are:

  • Charleston, SC: Camping and a night sleeping aboard the USS Yorktown. Patriots Point would also be included.
  • Gettysburg, PA: See the battlefield and tour the area.
  • Biking along the C&O Canal: spend a few days biking and taking in the sights (Antietam).

If this is something you're interested in, please register at http://bsatroop414.com/node/3153 and let us know your thoughts/preferences. This is all early stages, so if you have another suggestion, or a different timeframe in mind, please say so!
