Welcome to the National Capital Area Council Boy Scouts!

National Capital Area Council, BSA delivers the promise of Scouting to youth in the Washington, D.C., metro area, including 16 counties in Maryland and Virginia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and U.S. citizens abroad in North and South America. Our programs teach young people to “be prepared!” for adventure, education, service, and leadership.

Please know that we are monitoring developments regarding COVID-19 both locally and through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
