Troop 200 has been chartered by St. Luke’s United Methodist Church since 1982. Troop 200 is part of the Chesapeake Bay District of the Colonial Virginia Council (CVC595 Twitter) and subscribes fully to the Rules and Regulations of the National Council and the Colonial Virginia Council of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). To find other troops in the local area check out BeAscout.org!
Troop 200 has a tradition of providing a full Scouting experience, including regular troop and patrol meetings with a robust advancement program, well-rounded outdoor program including weekend tent camping about 10 months each year, high adventure opportunities, and service projects to the community. Past outdoor activities include snow skiing, backpacking, canoeing, boating, rock climbing/ rappelling, cycling, caving, and much more! The troop strives to provide motivated Scouts with plenty of opportunities to attain the First Class rank within a year or so of joining, while providing the older Scouts opportunities to obtain merit badges, participate in service projects, and experience high adventure activities. Troop 200 has been very successful in providing our Scouts the opportunity to achieve Scouting’s greatest honor, the rank of Eagle Scout.

The Order of the Arrow is Scouting's National Honor Society. It is the Brotherhood of Cheerful Service.
The purpose of the Order of the Arrow is fourfold:
- To recognize those Scout campers who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives
- To develop and maintain camping traditions and spirit
- To promote Scout camping
- To crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others
The induction ceremony, called the Ordeal, is the first step toward full membership. During the experience, candidates maintain silence, receive small amounts of food, work on camp improvement projects, and are required to sleep alone, apart from other campers. The entire experience is designed to teach significant values.
After 10 months of service and fulfilling certain requirements, a member may take part in the Brotherhood ceremony, which places further emphasis on the ideals of Scouting and the Order. Completion of this ceremony signifies full membership in the OA.
After two years of service as a Brotherhood member, and with the approval of the national Order of the Arrow Committee, a Scout may be recognized with the Vigil Honor for outstanding service to Scouting, his lodge, and the community. This honor is bestowed by special selection and is limited to one person for every 50 members registered with the lodge each year.
