Scouts BSA Troop 131
Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill is proud to be the charter organization for Scouts BSA Troop 131.
Troop 131 was founded in 1936 and is Alexandria, Virginia’s oldest troop. There are a few Troop 131 members among our parishioners, and Imanuel is the beneficiary of two Eagle Scout projects from the troop - the sidewalk from the parking lot to the deck of the Parish Hall, and a storage shed for the EYC.
Troop 131 is an extremely active, boy-led troop with approximately 40 Scouts ages 11-17. Troop meetings are held every Monday night at 7:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall. Scouts plan monthly camping weekends for the troop and participate regularly in service activities - such as Scouting for Food, which benefits the ALIVE! Food Bank.
Adult leaders for the Troop include Scoutmaster Mark Ramirez and Committee Chair Kevin Jahns.
