The National Capital Area Council (Boy Scouts of America) delivers the promise of scouting to youth in the Washington, DC metro area, including 16 counties in Maryland and Virginia, and in the US Virgin Islands. Our Programs teach young people to "be prepared!" for adventure, education, service and leadership.
Goshen Scout Reservation, a fully accredited camp, is the home of three resident Boy Scout camps, two resident Webelos camps, and the Lenhok’sin High Adventure Base, all centrally located around beautiful, 450 acre, Lake Merriweather. Each summer, Goshen Scout Reservation welcomes thousands of Webelos Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, and adult leaders. In continuous operation since 1967, Goshen Scout Reservation provides the premier summer camp experience in our area.
