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.


Popcorn - Wrapping Things Up!

Posted by admin on Oct 19 2016 - 11:25am

Please bring any popcorn money collected to the meeting on Monday night so we can tally the money and make our first payment to Council.

We'll also inventory what popcorn has not been sold so we can determine how to get rid of it. As a reminder, Council will not accept any returns, so it is our Troops responsibility to pay for all of the popcorn we've signed out. Thus, we need to do our best to sell it in the coming weeks.

Finally, if you do have popcorn left, and would be interested in participating in a booth sale at Farm Fresh (or another location), please let me and/or Vonda know and which dates would be best for you. If there is sufficient interest, we'll get something planned.

Food Handling at OSLC

Posted by admin on Oct 17 2016 - 10:36am

As our newly remodeled kitchen at OSLC is now considered a "commercial kitchen," there are some new rules we must adhere to in order to use the equipment inside.

Most importantly, if we're going to prepare food, as we do for some of our Court of Honor ceremonies, the pancake breakfast, and the Relay for Life dinner, we have to have folks properly trained.

The good news is, the training courses are held locally and are just 2 hours. A schedule and additional information is attached. Please keep us informed if/when you're able to attend.

Summer 2017 Philmont Opportunity

Posted by admin on Oct 17 2016 - 8:22am

2017 sure has plenty of great opportunities for our Boy Scouts!

Geoff Smith, our former Scoutmaster now living in New Mexico, phoned me all the way from China last night to offer a few open spots Sam's crew has at Philmont next summer. Their trek is scheduled for July 20-August 3rd, and he's offered to assist with travel/logistics for anyone interested in going. They have at least 4 open spots, so Scouts and Leaders are welcome.

Please let me know if this is of interest to you and I'll put you in contact with Geoff.

Catholic Religious Emblem

Posted by admin on Sep 22 2016 - 9:29pm

There is a meeting October 3rd at 4:30 at St. Bede in the Commons for any scout interested in Catholic Religious Emblems and/or religious activities. Even if not interested in the Religious Emblems, there are other activities and patches that are available that may interest many of the scouts of all ages. 

Please contact Terri Chang for additional information.

Additional Popcorn Orders!

We're putting together a 2nd order for popcorn!

If you'd like to order anything additional, including chocolate items we couldn't order in the heat of the summer, please get me the quantities you'd like or give the information to Vonda on Monday, September 12th.
