Troop 1257 qualified as a Journey To Excellence Gold Unit Award for the 2014 program year which is awarded in 2015 during the Troop's recharter with BSA. This is BSA's highest level of performance recognition. The state of our Troop is outstanding, and the 2015 program year is another banner year for us!

Inclement Weather

Troop 1257 follows the Fairfax County Public Schools in determining the cancellation of a weekly Troop meeting. If the FCPS are closed, or close early, or cancel evening activites, then the Troop meeting is cancelled. Cancellation of a weekend activity will be determined by the Scoutmaster in charge of that activity.
