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 2018 Journey to Excellence Bronze 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, Scouts BSA Troops, Explorer Posts, 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.
All 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!
Embark upon your own adventure aboard the Yankee Clipper!
