Q: Is it true that Troop 800 meets all the way out in Powhatan?
A: False. We meet at Bethel Baptist Church, which is only about a mile west of Westchester Commons on Rt. 60 (Midlothian Tpk) and before the Windy Hill Sports Complex.

Q: Is it true that Troop 800's dues are very expensive?
A: False -- because we DO NOT and have NEVER had dues... Zero... Zilch... Nada... EVER... Only a one time fee when joining the Troop.

Q: Is it true that your monthly campouts are expensive?
A: False. It typically costs $20.00 per campout, which is solely for food (usually 5 meals). EVERYTHING ELSE is supplied by the Troop. If we are doing something special on a campout like our annual ski trip or going to a museum, there may be additional fees, but this is typically only 2-3 times a year.

Q: Won't the boys get bored camping at Camp Justis every month?
A: No, because we only camp at Camp Justis 3-4 times per year at most and usually 2-3 months in between. We try to alternate a couple of out of town trips between visits to Camp Justis. Recent trips have included:

  • Gettysburg, PA - Civil War Battlefield
  • Harper's Ferry, WV - Hiking on the AT
  • Massanutten, VA - Skiing and Waterpark
  • Virginia Beach, VA - Camp Pendleton Army Base / Oceana NAS / MacArthur Museum
  • Richmond, VA - Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

Q: Is it true that Troop 800 does not allow female Assistant Scoutmasters?
A: Absolutely False. In the 25+ year history of the Troop, we have NEVER had a female submit an application to become an Assistant Scoutmaster.  In fact, we have always had a very large contingent of female volunteers who serve the Troop in many roles, especially on the Advancement Committee.

Q: Is it true that you require the boys to do multiple fundraisers throughout the year?
A: False. We only do one official fundraiser per year and that is our annual mulch sale, but we do require the entire family to participate. It involves about 3 hours one day in late February/early March distributing flyers throughout your assigned neighborhood and then working all day on a Saturday in late March/early April to deliver the mulch. For boys going on high adventure trips (Philmont, Northern Tier and Sea Base), we try to offer additional fundraising opportunities, but they are entirely voluntary.

Q: Do you go to Camp T. Brady Saunders for Summer Camp every year like most of the other local Troops?
A: No. We never go to Camp T. Brady Saunders. Past Summer camps have included:

  • Camp Powhatan - Hiwassee, VA (2011, 2013, 2014)
  • Camp Rainey Mountain - Clayton, GA (2012)
  • Camp Raven Knob - Mt. Airy, NC (2015)
