Capitol Area Council Map of Districts

There are 10 Cub Scout packs within our district. We have 14 BSA troops; including one Girls’ BSA Troop.

Within the district, 117 adults are registered as Merit Badge Counselors.

District Finance Committee

Successful financing of the council is the direct result of successfully conducted fund-raising programs within each district.  Each district within the council has finance goals.  The district finance committee assists in determining and raising the goals.

District Membership Committee

The district membership committee gathers information on prospective chartered organizations, helps organize new units, reorganizes dropped units and units not meeting, and recruits new members in a systematic way. It establishes and maintains mutually beneficial relationships with major community organizations and strategic alliances, both those with and without Scouting units. These include religious, educational, civic, fraternal, and veteran organizations and associations; labor unions; business and industry; professional societies; and other organizations with objectives compatible with the Boy Scouts of America.

District Activities and Civic Service Committee

The district activities and civic service committee’s job is to provide mountaintop experiences that dramatically capture the attention of the whole Scouting community: a Scout color guard at a city hall ceremony, or presentation of the Award of Merit to leaders at a district recognition dinner. Your efforts help make these great events happen in the lives of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, and leaders.

District Advancement and Recognition Committee

The district advancement committee implements procedures that help achieve BSA advancement procedures. The committee helps Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Varsity teams, and Venturing crews succeed. Units help youth members advance in rank. If they advance, they will have a good experience and will grow in their Scouting adventure.

District Camp Promotion and Outdoor Committee

The district camp promotion and outdoor committee provides outdoor programs that most units are unable to provide on their own, and outdoor programs are often the main reason youth join a Scout unit. From Cub Scout day camp to high-adventure programs, this committee helps make exciting outdoor programs available for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers.

District Training Committee

The district training committee’s job is to get adult leaders trained. One of the keys to the success of the Scouting program is trained volunteer leadership. Second only to the selection of the right person for each responsibility is his or her training in the purposes of Scouting, the methods through which these purposes are achieved, and the techniques of their individual job.
