Districts

WHAT IS A DISTRICT?

The district is a fundamental element of the BSA structure. By dividing the council Service Area into districts, we are better able to administer, train, and serve the packs, troops, and crews within each of the boundaries. The districts will independently offer resources and personnel who can make the Scouting experience for you and your Scout a positive and engaging experience.

Use the drop downs below locate your district. Then take the time to look over your district staff, program and event opportunities, and trainings that may be taking place in your area. Also be sure to attend your next upcoming Roundtable event as these are great resources for gaining insight and ideas for your unit.
