digital tech smOn December 12, 2020 we moved to a new Web Hosting Company. Due to some issues with our old web hosting company, we felt it best to move to another to keep full functionality and also institute SSL to keep your privacy. We encourage you to report any issues you may find on the site as there may have been a glitch or two in the move of our software from one host to another.  Thanks.

We have upgraded and significantly improved the Website for 2019 and are compliant with the EU GDPR! As you can see the upgrade and all new look of the Web site is complete!  While you still will be able to find all the items that you are used to getting here, the look of the Web site is all new as well as most of everything you can't see.  In addition to sprucing the site up, we have upgraded the workings to make the site accessible to the disabled and added new content for the Scouts.

On May 25, 2018, a new European Union (EU) data protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), took effect. The GDPR gives individuals in the EU more control over how their data is used and places certain obligations on businesses that process information of those individuals. We’ve updated our Privacy Policy and our processes to take into account the new requirements of the GDPR.

Also included in the new site are easy to use links to the Boy's Life Merit Badge requirements look-up tool and the Troop Handbook for new and older Scouts ... and their parents!

A question we have received is, "Where is the guest book/message boards?"  The simple answer is that the Boy Scouts of America and the National Capital Area Council (NCAC) has strict guidelines and suggested operating parameters for unit websites within its council.  One of the directives, due to "Safe Scouting" and "Youth Protection" is that no chat capabilities be used on a unit website.  Basically, anything that can be put on the website that isn't pre-screened and approved by the Troop Committee cannot be used.  Thus, no guest book, no chat rooms, no message boards/forums and no advertising.

We hope this helps answer the question and feel free to email us with any other questions, suggestions or comments you have about the website.
