We are part of the Monticello District and the Stonewall Jackson Area Council of Boy Scouts of America (BSA). If you are interested in learning about our Troop or becoming a member, we encourage you to visit us during our Tuesday night meetings. Please contact our Scoutmaster to arrange the visit, and we will show you why Troop 111 is a great place for boys to learn and grow.

Troop 111’s September Court of Honor will be held on September 4th, 2016, from 1:00 – 3:00PM at Grace Community Church. We look forward to recognizing a great deal of accomplishment and hard work over the summer! Please bring a pot luck dish to share.
Troop 111 had a successful and fun canoe trip in August. Our original plan was to cover 12 miles of the Potomac River. Thanks to a breezy headwind and a few other factors, we stopped at the Point of Rocks landing after covering 6 miles (although some of us zigzagged enough to paddle closer to 7), which helped make it a great, relaxing trip. The river was beautiful, and the water was perfect for staying cool. Some of the OG’s caught fish, and some of the boys caught a glimpse of a water snake. We stopped on a rock island for lunch, and the Troop cleaned up some trash along the way.
