We plan for and go on over 11 camping, special tours, merit badge events, and day trips every year. We also attend scout camp and high adventure camps, on odd years the troop goes to Goshen Scout Reservation and on even years the troop attends any of the other stellar scouting overnight camps within a 4 hour radius of Falls Church. In the past few years we have had at least 15 Scouts per camping trip and a 90% attendance rate at overnight summer camp.
Troop 349 works on an 18 month calendar cycle that is developed by all of the scouts in the troop and then reviewed and voted on by the PLC. All of the events that are listed on the calendar are planned by the previous PLC, each PLC serves for 6 months, the incoming PLC takes whats left of the previous years calendar, ratifys it, and then adds an additional 6 months to it which pushes it out to an 18 month calendar. This creates a connection to the previous PLCs desires and includes events that all of the scouts in the troop have had input on or have suggested.
Meetings are held every Tuesday from 7:00 – 8:30 pm at the American Legion Hall (400 N Oak St Falls Church VA) see the calendar tab for information on specific days and times.
349 meets every month starting in September and ending in June. Courts of Honor are held every quarter and a yearly founding anniversary party is held in April.
