White Oak District
White Oak District
The White Oak District is a geographic operating unit of the National Capital Area Council–covering White Oak, Aspen Hill, Colesville, and some parts of Silver Spring, and some parts of Takoma Park.
On this map, we are marked as the region in brown, directly north of the northern tip of Washington, DC.
We are home to about 30 Cub Scout Packs, 25 Boy Scout Troops, 11 Crews, 3 Teams, 1 Ship, 1 Exploring Post, and 1 Exploring Club, for a total of 2,143 youth members, and 785 adult volunteers.
