We are the Eagle Scout Alumni of the National Capital Area Council.
The National Capital Area Council sees over 1,200 Scouts earn the Eagle rank every year. The Eagle projects alone account for at least 120,000 hours of community service. But the real service to our community is seen years and decades after these young men earn their Eagle Scout rank. They become leaders who believe in "service over self" and "duty to God and Country."
Contributions to the National Capital Area Council, Boy Scouts of America will help sustain a Scouting programs that promote character development and leadership skills that America desperately needs.
About the National Capital Area Council, Boy Scouts of America's Gathering of Eagles Group
In June of 1911, a group of community leaders met at the Willard Hotel on Pennsylvania Ave NW in Washington, DC, and put into place the structure for what is now the National Capital Area Council (NCAC), Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Their vision was “to organize the boys…into units and teach them, or cause them to be taught through duly designated leaders, discipline, patriotism, courage, habits of preservation, self-control and the ability to care for themselves in all exigencies of life.”
A century later, NCAC is putting that vision into practice on a daily basis for 61,900 young people through the dedication of more than 22,800 registered adult volunteers and countless known and unknown supporters. Its resources are focused on ensuring every youth in this area has the opportunity to grow up into positive, productive, contributing members of society by learning leadership skills and developing strong character and healthy living habits. As NCAC responds to the shifting needs and demographics of the communities it serves, one thing remains constant - the values exemplified by The Scout Oath and The Scout Law. Every day, through the programs of Scouting, local youth demonstrate these values through word and deed, becoming the best version of themselves possible and making a difference as citizens of their community and in the world.
In 2010, NCAC supported the advancement of 1,263 Eagle Scouts.
