Boy Scout Troop 893 is chartered by Centreville United Methodist Church (CUMC), 6400 Old Centreville Road. We meet on Tuesday’s at CUMC from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in full Class A uniform.

We want to thank everyone for your interest and support for our annual "Totally Awesome Garage (TAG) Sale". Unfortunately, we will not be having the TAG sale this year. The current economic climate has made it impossible for us to procure a space for a May TAG sale. We cherish the tradition of the TAG sale and all of it's contributions to the the troop and community.

Soap Box Derby Announcement from Scoutmaster

Posted on Jul 2 2014 - 12:26am

Troop 893 Adults:

The scouts have been planning to hold another soap box derby this fall. We have confirmed a race date for Sunday October 12th. Each of the patrols needs an adult derby car construction adviser to assist them in coming up with a feasible design, provide access to tools, and perhaps some workspace, and ensure safety throughout the construction process. We will plan several "patrol nights" for construction through out the summer during regular troop meeting times. If you have the skills and tools the scouts really need your help!

Troop Help Needed - June 18th

Posted on Jun 15 2014 - 6:54pm

Troop 893,

CUMC is having us relocate our troop storage room to the closets across the hall from our current troop room. We have prepared the closets with shelving, but need some help to finish the last part. We need to clean out the troop room and move the remaining items to the new closet, throw out what can't be used and move other items to the troop shed. Dave T. and I and our sons will be meeting on Wednesday , June 18th at 6:30 Pm to complete this task. We are looking for a few more people to help. I think it should only take 1 -2 hours. Please let me know if you are able to help.

REMEMBER the meeting this week is on WEDNESDAY 4 June!

The troop meeting will be on Wednesday, 4 June, at the Cub Run Rec Center from 7:00 to 8:30pm. We will be doing pre-tests for summer camp as well as working on swimming and lifesaving skills with the new scouts. New scouts should bring a pair of long pants and a long sleeve shirt that can get wet in the pool. A plastic bag to bring them home in might also be good to bring along. Also, scout pants and button down shirts do not work well. The buttons and zippers let too much air out. Scouts who miss the pre-test on 4 June will have to take the test at summer camp before they can participate in any aquatics program!
