NP About


Welcome to the National Pike District!


We are here to support the Scouts and Scouters in the district, which is comprised of all of Howard County. National Pike is one of the 6 Districts that make up the Baltimore Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, which serves Baltimore City and the 5 surrounding counties of central Maryland.

In National Pike, there are roughly 2,000 active scouts and 1,700 adult leaders and volunteers. 74 Scouting units are active within Howard County’s borders including Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, Sea Scout Ships and Explorer Posts.  Our Order of the Arrow Lodge is one of the largest in the Council.

Please feel free to look around and check out what’s going on within the district. Stop by the calendar page for upcoming events and trainings.

If you should have any questions about Scouting in Howard County, please contact the Key 3.

Thanks for stopping by!
