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 2015 Journey to Excellence Gold Award! There are 54 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.
The Toy Fair, in operation since 1977, is a grand-scale service project that assists social service agencies in King County in supporting the needs of people in our local communities. Each year social service agencies are invited to participate and select toys and gifts for distribution to recipients of all ages.
Scouts from Packs and Troop in our District donate home-made, quality gifts to warm the hearts of the needy during the holiday season. The contributions every person makes to support this service are greatly appreciated. We look forward to your help in our efforts to expand the outreach of this project so we can touch the lives of as many families as possible.
Aquila district is in the process of updating the current list of merit badge counselors. If you are currently a merit badge counselor please respond to or e-mail Ken DeVos, 206-248-2543. We need to know the merit badge(s) that you are the counselor for and the troop that you are affiliated with. Please specify if you are willing to reach outside your troop. If you do not wish to continue as MBC let us know that too. If you are interested in becoming a merit badge counselor read on...

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.
