Welcome to the Boy Scout Troop 1966 Website

Boy Scout Troop 1966 is based in Fairfax, Virginia and meets at Laurel Ridge Elementary. Our troop was formed in 1973 and has a long and successful history of bringing up Boy Scouts and helping them achieve Eagle Rank. Our troop has approximately 35 active scouts and a very active adult leader and committee member group.

  • We camp once a month and go to a week-long Boy Scout camp in the summer.
  • Troop 1966 meets each Thursday night at 7:30pm at Laurel Ridge Elementary during the school year (September to mid-June). 
  • The Patrol Leaders Council meets on the first Thursday of the month just prior to the full Troop meeting.

First Troop to visit the USS Gerald R. Ford

On January 11, 2020 Troop 1966 was honored and privileged to be the first Boy Scout Troop to visit the USS Gerald R. Ford, the newest aircraft carrier in the United States Navy and the first in its class. It is the first aircraft carrier designed in more than 40 years.  This trip was especially significant to both the scouts and the ship because Gerald Ford is the only President of the United States to ever achieve Eagle Scout, Boy Scout’s highest rank.  President Ford’s experience as a Boy Scout was so meaningful to him and his family that the ship’s official seal includes a compass with a fleur-de-lis pointing true north instead of an N to symbolize the Boy Scouts of America and their core values.
