Welcome to the Ranchero West District
Golden Empire Council
of the Boy Scouts of America
Glenn, Butte and parts of Tehama County
"Be Prepared... the meaning of the motto is that a scout must prepare himself
by previous thinking out and practicing how to act on any accident or emergency so that he is never taken by surprise."
- Robert Baden-Powell
Our vision is to be recognized within the communities we serve as the premiere youth organization, carrying out the mission of the Boy Scouts of America. We will make first-class programs available to all youth within the Central Valley communities of Northern California. Program results will have dramatic, positive effects on the youth, leaders, and families we serve, building strong communities with caring citizens.
The vision for the Golden Empire Council and the Ranchero West District is to accomplish the mission of the BSA in such an exemplary manner as to be recognized by our public as the premier youth organization in the communities we serve and by other councils and the National Council as second to none in all our endeavors.

Scouting's Journey to Excellence
"Scouting's Journey to Excellence" is the BSA's council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units, districts, and councils. It has replaced the Centennial Quality Awards Program as a means of encouraging excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA. More information is available here.
