Welcome to the Home of BSA Troop 1396!

St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Lake Ridge, Virginia has continuously and graciously sponsored our Troop since its founding in April 1989. This year we celebrated our 30th Anniversary with a ceremony and Court of Honor at St. Matthew’s.

We are a Scout-led troop serving in the Prince William District of Northern Virginia, part of the National Capital Area Council (NCAC), one of the largest Councils in the United States. Recognizing what started as a small group of Scouts and adult leaders has grown into one of the largest and most active Troops in our area with well over 100 members, youth plus adult, over the past few years.

We regularly meet our goals of 10 camping outings a year and back-to-back Journey to Excellence Gold status.

Troop 1396 maintains a very active Scout and trained Scouter (adult member) membership, as well as a superb record of Eagle Scouts. Over 90% of our adult membership are fully trained to BSA requirements. We have had at least one Scout earn Eagle Scout in every year (except the first year) since our initial charter in 1989. We are very proud of all our Eagle Scouts! Check out our list in The Eagle's Nest.
