Aquila District

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

When we get to camp, we'll form Patrols and then do everything together using the Scouts BSA 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 Scouts BSA 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!!

Not a Cub Scout? New Scouts are also eligible with a Cub Scout application at the door!

marblesWarm up those shooters so you can knuckle down and play for keeps without histing or hunching! No idea what that last sentence means? That's OK, it just means we're getting ready to play marbles! Aquila District Cub Scouts spend one Saturday morning in February playing the game of Ringer and increasing their collection of marbles (as well as learning all that marbles lingo). Bring your favorite shooter if you've got one, otherwise we'll give you one. If you're a first through fifth grade Scout, this is one event you won't want to miss (get it?). You can also join Scouts and play by filling out an application at the door.

WashJam LogoThis is the big one! Yes, it's time once again for all Aquila Scouts and Scouters to converge on Joint Base Lewis-McChord for the closest thing to the National Jamboree!
