Welcome to the Yolo District

Serving Scouting in the communities of Davis, Woodland, Dixon, Winters and Esparto

Where Scouts have fun while learning about the outdoors, responsibility, citizenship, nature and a whole lot more. Scouts are grouped by age and maturity level, gaining in experience and responsibility as they grow. Click on the "Join Scouting" tab above for information on age requirements and joining.

The Scouting program has four specific objectives, commonly referred to as the "Aims of Scouting." They are character development, citizenship training, leadership, and mental and personal fitness.

Yolo District is responsible for carrying out four standard functions: membership, finance, program, and unit service.

2018 Jelly Belly Fundraiser

The district will be sponsoring a Jelly Belly fundraiser again this year. We will be doing take-order only, with the plan to turn in all forms by the November Round Table and have product available for distribution before Christmas. Please sign up at the District Meeting tomorrow night and let us know how many order forms you will need. You can also email the number to Email David Here We will have all of the forms and pamphlets ready by Autumn in the Park.


Toys For Tots, Toy Distribution

December 15, 2018
Waite Hall, Yolo County Fairgrounds

The Marines would deeply appreciate the help of Boy Scouts in uniform at their toy giveaway on December 15. Pizza will be served for lunch for the volunteers.

They also need help from December 12-14 sorting toys. This would be a great activity for both Cubs and Scouts. The sorting times are 4:00 - 6:00 PM.
