White Oak District

Welcome to 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.

YPT has officially changed!
All leaders or adults who regularly camp with the kids will be required to certify or re-certify by OCTOBER 1, 2018

Step-By-Step Instructions for login and training.
There are four modules. You may save your progress.
Estimate about 2 hours in total for all four modules.
