Welcome to Troop 164, Arlington, Virginia

About Our Troop

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations.
The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship,
and develops personal fitness.  For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining
educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of
experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

Troop 164 was originally founded in November of 2012, and is charted by Our Lady Of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church 
in Arlington, Virginia.  We are in the Chain Bridge District of the National Capital Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.  Click on
the hyperlinks for more information on these organizations.  We primarily serve the South Arlington and Alexandria areas, but we are
open to all scouts or potential scouts in the Northern Virginia area.  

We generally meet each Monday of the month, with exceptions (check our Troop Calendar), at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church
Parish Hall, 800 S. 23rd Street, Arlington, Virginia.  Although we are a relatively young troop, we strive to be a "Boy-Led Troop" (click link
for more information on the philosophy and our approach to achieve a "BLT"), and we maintain an active outdoor schedule, provide
leadership training and opportunities, as well as opportunities for advancement.
