Serving Northern Virginia from the Potomac to the Occoquan and I-95 East
Welcome to the Colonial District
Colonial District is part of the Virginia Central field service area in the National Capital Area Council. It is the home to 73 scouting units, serving over 2,300 youth in the areas of Alexandria, Lorton and Mt Vernon in Fairfax County, Virginia. Additionally the Learning for Life program in the district has 3 units serving 38 members.
As you may have heard the National Capital Area Council has joined in the national pilot of the Lion Cub program and has asked that the districts interested in participating identify several Cub Packs to participate in the pilot.
We are sure that almost every Cub Pack in the Colonial District would be willing to participate in the program, we have been asked to limit participation during the pilot period. The Council has indicated that the interested units should complete an application and that the districts should be responsible for that process as well as the selection criteria to be used in the selection.
Colonial District Fall Camporee and Webelos-Ree is Coming!

Scouting for Food is an annual food collection orchestrated by Scouts from National Capital Area Council. Local Scouts distribute plastic bags to homes across the region and return to pick up the bags, now filled with food, one week later. Collected food is distributed to needy families throughout the communities of the Council.
Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Venturing crews and Sea Scout ships throughout the Council will be distributing Scouting for Food donation bags in local neighborhoods. They return to collect those bags one week later.
