For many consecutive years, Troop 17 in 2019 has earned the Boy Scouts of America’s Journey to Excellence Gold Award. This prestigious award recognizes the top 10% of Boy Scout units nationwide, and is presented to Troops based on a thorough assessment of overall program quality including rank advancement, Webelos-to-Scout transition, camping, community service, patrol method and boy leadership development, training, and budgeting and planning.
Troop 17 was one of the first troops in Virginia to offer the Boy Scouts of America STEM Nova and Supernova Awards program! Our STEM program complements the Troop’s traditional Scouting program.
Our STEM program is open to Troop 17 Scouts of all ages. This is a hands-on, high-level, and fun activity designed to encourage interest and provide real experience with science, technology, and engineering.
