Visit to hear our story.

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.

Gathering of Eagles


The Gathering of Eagles (GOE) is the overall “umbrella” for the NCAC Eagle alumni initiative, responsible for leadership and coordination of the initiative.


  • In 2010, the Boy Scouts of America celebrated its 100th anniversary; in 2011, the National Capital Area Council (NCAC) is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
  • Based on the 2008 National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) roster, more than 16,000 Eagles Scouts were reported to live in the NCAC area (District of Columbia, suburban Maryland and Northern Virginia). After a series of integrity audits were conducted by NCAC, the list of local, non-active Eagle Scouts in the area is closer to 10,000. We currently have approximately 1,200 registered with Gathering of Eagles.
  • Becoming an Eagle Scout is an important part of the Boy Scout program and a life-defining accomplishment for all whom earn it. The saying “Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle” is the basis for a unique brotherhood that has the potential to be a powerful resource for Scouting and NCAC.
  • The NCAC has established the NCAC Gathering of Eagles (GOE) with the aim of its becoming the Eagle alumni lead for the National Capital Region.


  • Encourage networking and friendship among local Eagle Scouts
