About Us

Who we Are:
We are Boy Scout Troop 893, chartered by the Centreville United Methodist Church of Centreville, VA

Unit History:
We are celebrating our 50th year of Boy Scouting in 2008.
We are one of the largest Troops in the National Capital Area, with membership of over 100 boys.
More than 100 boys have become Eagle Scouts in the Troop, with an average of several per year recently.

Who We Serve:
We serve youth throughout the Centreville and Chantilly areas, CUMC members and non-members alike. Our Youth are from 5th grade/10 years old to 18 years old.

Major Events:
Totally Awesome Garage Sale, also known as the Troop 893 Flea Market. This is the biggest Boy Scout fundraising event you've ever seen.
Summer camp, every year. Goshen, Camp Olmsted and Blue Ridge Scout Reservation, Camp Powhattan are favorite destinations.
High Adventure trips run nearly every summer. Our Troop sends members to Philmont Scout Ranch nearly every summer, either in a Troop Crew or through participation in other contingents. We send Crews to Sea Base in Florida roughly every other year.
Monthly camping trips, all year round
