Welcome to the Troop 893 Website

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. Members of Troop 893 are given the user name and password for full access to the site. If you are interested in additional information about Troop 893, please contact Scoutmaster Shawn Morrow (shawnm@ieee.org).

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.

42nd Annual Memorial Weekend FAMILY Canoe Trip

Posted on Apr 17 2015 - 12:34pm


A signature event of the year, the 42nd Annual Memorial Weekend FAMILY Canoe Trip, will be Memorial Day Weekend, May 22nd-24th. We will leave on Friday night and canoe on Saturday and Sunday. The way this trip works is that we drive up Friday night to a camping area by the South Fork of the Shenandoah river, put in the river in the morning directly adjacent to our camp, canoe about 12 miles to Compton Rapid where we pull the canoes out, ride the outfitter's bus back to camp, and have a camp and campfire. The next morning we ride the bus back to where the canoes are stashed, put in, canoe about 10 miles to the outfitter's shop in Bentonville, pull out, bus back to camp, break camp and head home. Since we stay at the same place each night we do not need to carry any gear beyond lunch in the canoes, and there is no danger of getting our sleeping bags wet.
