Colonial District is part of the Virginia Central field service area in the National Capital Area Council. It is the home to 76 scouting units, proudly serving nearly 3,000 youth in the areas of Alexandria, Lorton and Mt Vernon in Fairfax County, Virginia.
Colonial District Chair Keith Gray reports on membership growth and his vision for the coming year.
Just because school is out does not mean your Pack, Troop, or Crew cannot continue to have fun this summer! If you are going to conduct a family camp, pack camp, or long-term (such as Goshen or Snyder) camp, please let your District Committee know!
As you know, one of the criteria that counts toward the Journey to Excellence is camping during the summer months. So, as you continue planning for the year, please consider adding other camping activities appropriate for your Scouts to your program during the summer.
