Welcome to Troop 1570 of the National Capital Area Council, Powhatan District! We are located in Herndon, Virginia and our chartering sponsor is the Clearview Elementary School PTA. The troop was founded in 1973 and has been a real success due to the fine leadership and parental involvement. With an average registration of 45 scouts and 15 scouters, we meet on a weekly basis with the exception of holidays. The Monday evening meetings are held at the Clearview Elementary School Cafeteria from 7:00 - 8:00. The 3rd Monday of the month is set aside for our Patrol Leaders Council, where the boys plan upcoming meetings and events.
With outdoor activities planned monthly, we seem to accomplish the needs of the camping and backpacking enthusiasts. We like to attend a different summer camp each year as we have found the boys like the diversity of experiences. We try to maintain a rotation of backpacking at Philmont, sailing and snorkeling at the Florida Sea Base and canoeing the boundary waters at the Canadian Northern Tier High Adventure Base. Other high adventure activities include Biking down the C&O Canal, Hiking on the Appalachian Trail and white water rafting on the Ohiopyle River. The troop attends 2 Camporees yearly, which are hosted by our district, and with lots of monthly troop outings on the agenda.
Troop 1570 developed and maintains this website for a variety of reasons including:
  • Keeping our Scouts and Scouting families informed. The Internet provides the fastest way to communicate schedule changes, and late breaking news.
  • Sharing our adventures with family, friends and the Scouting community.
  • Letting our community and the world know about our Troop, its activities and objectives.
  • Scouting offers something for our community's youth and gives back to the community through service projects. Most people aren't aware of this and we hope to add yet another way of communicating this through the Internet. And hey, we may even get lucky and recruit some new Scouts to our Troop!
We hope you enjoy your visit to virtual Troop 1570!
