The Boy Scouts of America’s National Capital Area Council prepares youth for life through outstanding programs that inspire, build character and instill the values that young people need to succeed today. That includes everything from camping and hiking, to community service and leadership development.
National Capital Area Council—Number 82—is one of the largest of the nearly 300 local councils chartered by the National Council, Boy Scouts of America. Our members come from 20 districts, spread across northern Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.
The Maryland counties we serve include:
- Prince George’s
- St. Mary’s
The Virginia counties we serve include:
- Prince William
- King George
- as well as the cities of Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax, Manassas, Manassas Park and Fredericksburg.
Each Scout gains experiences that not only help them when they are young, but stay with them throughout their adult lives, helping them grow into adults that respect their family, community, religion, country and themselves.
