Welcome to the Aquila District website. Our district spans from West Seattle to Des Moines, and from Tukwila to Vashon. Aquila District was recognized with the 2016 Journey to Excellence Gold Award! There are 50 Scouting units with more than 400 registered adult volunteers serving over 1,100 youth throughout our district. If you are interested in learning more about Scouting, please contact or visit one of the Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, or Venturing Crews in our community. Our monthly Roundtable meetings are a great place for adults to learn about Scouting and exchange ideas with other Scouters all over the District.

Join 400-500 of your fellow scouts from the Aquila and Green River Districts for a huge weekend of camping, exciting competitions, cooking, games, races, and campfires! All Boy, Explorer, Girl, Varsity, Venturing, and Webelos scouts are invited to participate in this fun-filled weekend. Scouts setup their own camps complete with custom gates, and compete against teams from other units in unit sponsored games of skill, knowledge, and strength. They also cook their own meals, race in chariots they built, and entertain each other with hilarious skits and songs around the campfire each night. Nothing could be better!
Who Should Attend: Cubmasters, Den Leaders, and Adults who want to lead Cub & Webelos Scouts on exciting, well planned, outdoor camping programs.
If your Pack is planning an overnight camping trip you MUST have at least one adult in your pack certified as BALOO Trained!

Scouts should check out this cool application for the iPhone and iPod touch, designed by the Aquila District's own Mike Grueter:
ScoutTracker is an app for the iPhone and iPod touch that lets Boy Scouts track their rank advancement. Scouts can sign and date each requirement of each rank, instantly see what requirements are left to complete, send reports to advancement coordinators via e-mail, and more.
