2017 camporee patchJoin 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!

100FlagParadeThere are several big parades throughout the Aquila District during the month of July. Scouts can choose to march in one or all of them! Really! The more the merrier! Ideally each parade would have a single, large Scout presence instead of several smaller, separate groups. This includes Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Camp Fire, Venturing Scouts, Sea Scouts, Varsity Scouts, etc. In order to accomplish this, please don't register your own Scout group in the parade. Instead, please contact the Parade Coordinator for the parade(s) your Scout group wants to march in. Contact information and specific parade details are included here for each parade, so read on to find the info for your parade.

Logo 2018Aquila District holds day camp at beautiful Schoenwald Park in Burien, Washington. Schoenwald Park is maintained and provided to us by the Kiwanis Club of Highline, Burien, and it is located behind Sylvester Middle School. If you have not been to Cub Scout day camp before, now is the time. Getting outdoors is what appeals most to boys, and Day Camp experiences are what boys remember most about Cub Scouting. This is the promise of Scouting and it's why we're here. Each day at camp, Scouts will spend their time doing the kinds of things most young boys love to do including crafts, cooking, nature exploration, archery, wood-working, leather-working, BB guns, and games.

Tiger CampThis is a nifty, short, evening camp program specially designed for the Tiger rank (boys finishing Kindergarten in June). Come see what Day Camp and Cub Scouting is all about. Your evenings will be filled with great activities to work on together, including camp crafts. There will also be Tiger rank achievements to be earned to help you along the way. This camp is filled with Scouting fun!

Webelos OvernightWebelos and Arrow of Light Scouts (who were Bear and Webelos Scouts prior to June) are invited to experience an overnight Boy Scout campout. Have fun in the outdoors, learn camping skills, work on rank requirements, and meet Boy Scouts and adult leaders from your neighborhood Troops.

When we get to camp, we'll form Patrols and then do everything together using the Boy Scout Patrol Method. We'll setup campsites, cook our own meals over the fire and in dutch ovens, have a campfire and cracker-barrel, participate in lots of fun Boy Scout activities, and even work on some Webelos and Arrow of Light rank requirements. See you 'round the campfire!

Cub Scout PumpkinCast in a Brothers Grimm setting, Troop 360's Haunted Hike is a community event geared toward youth aged 7-12.  As you walk through the scary, dark forest, you will come across a variety of haunted scenes. Some may make you laugh, others will drain you of your courage! Either way, this mysterious trek is sure to get you in the mood for Halloween. Everyone is welcome, so bring your whole family, but please be aware that is can be too scary for some younger hikers.

If you're up for a hike through the woods and a good old-fashioned scaring, put on your hiking boots and join us for an evening of classics like: grave scenes, monsters jumping out at you from the bushes, creatures ambling through the fog, rabid animals howling in the distance, and yes, perhaps even... zombies!!

bowling-strikeCub Scouts! Grab an adult and join the rest of the Scouts in the Aquila District for a fun morning or afternoon of bowling! Scouts and Scouters from all over the district will converge on Hiline Lanes for some pin-crushing action this November. This fun event is open to all first through fifth grade boys. Not a Cub Scout? New Scouts are also eligible with a Cub Scout application at the door!

toy fair patch 2017The 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.

klondike posterAll Scouts and Webelos are invited to re-enact the historic gold rush to the Klondike. Scouts will pull homemade sleds from Skagway to Dawson. En route they will encounter problems that require basic Scout skills and teamwork to overcome. Leading up to the event, Scouts will build their own Klondike sled, but Scouts (not dogs) will be powering the sleds through the snow. Get out in the snow, test your mettle, and see how your Patrol or Den fares in this annual favorite!
