Welcome to Frontier District
The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral decisions throughout their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. You will find tons of information on this site as we bring it up to speed on current events in the District.

Roundtables play a significant role in providing continuous supplemental training for unit leaders. This monthly event provides program topic guidance and structure suggestions for unit leaders. Frontier District has an all new Roundtable program - 1st Thursday of the month 7-8:30pm - Bethany Lutheran Church, 4500 E Hampden Ave. Here are the resources that were presented in case you missed them.
Webelos Round-up October 6th
If I'm recruiting for my company, how do I draw in the talent? If I'm the talent, where do I go to find an outfit that is the best fit for me?
That's what you'll see at the Frontier District Webelos Roundup.
Any troop that wants to recruit can set up a table that shows the best face of your unit, and any cubmaster, Bear or Webelos den leader, parent and Webelos can visit with the troops to get first-hand knowledge of the troop's leadership (and leadership opportunities), programs, activities and scouting philosophy. You'll get a peek at troop calendars and see which events your Webelos can attend to support the Arrow of Light and other achievements, go camping, find den chiefs and to just have fun.
Most important is the "one-stop shopping" aspect, where Webelos get to to contact all the troops they would consider joining. Do you want a troop that offers advancement AND fun activities? Sports-mindedness? Academics support? Adventure? Heavy-duty camping? A strong Eagle program? Strong merit badge support? Adult opportunities? And for right now, do you want a troop that provides den chiefs, camping opportunities and other Webelos program support?
Troops get a 5-foot round or 8-foot long table to put their best foot forward in storyboards, powerpoints, scrap books, photos or any other visual aid you bring to sell the troop. Make sure there are some scouts to talk with the boys and answer questions.
Troops: don't wait to see what the other guy is doing. He may just squire away the Webelos you think are a lock for your troop.
Webelos: don't miss this opportunity to shop for the best troop for you the first time around.
It all happens at Bethany Lutheran Church on the southwest corner of Hampden, Dahlia and Happy Canyon Roads at 7 p.m. Oct. 6. To reserve a table, contact Chuck Kubin

Recruitment efforts take place throughout the year. Frontier District Scouting units conduct a coordinated effort to enroll new members to Sign up for Scouting in the Spring. The Fall Recruitment effort focuses on recruiting boys that are K through 4th grades, but is not limited to that. The Boy Scouts recruit 5th-11th grade young men and Venturing recruits 8th grade young men and women between ages 13-20.
These recruiting events are put on by Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Venturing Crews throughout the local community. Our main objective is to give multiple sign up opportunities to ensure that every youth is invited to join Scouting and to fulfill our promise to new Scouts for a great Scouting program.
