About Us

Troop 106 emphasizes scout leadership, outdoor activities, and fun! We meet on Tuesdays at 7:30 at Rock Spring Congregational United Church of Christ, 5010 Little Falls Road, Arlington, Virginia. We have at least one outing each month during the school year. In the summer we go to camp for a week, and have a major Venture outing for older scouts, including the Philmont Scout ranch every other year.

Troop 106 has been continuously active since 1922 and so is one of the oldest troops in Arlington. Our boys attend many different public and private schools in Northern Virginia and DC, and we welcome boys from any school or Cub Scout Pack. We offer a complete merit badge program, and our goal is for all of our boys to reach the rank of First Class. In addition, a high proportion of our boys become sufficiently committed to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.
