Welcome to the Yolano District

Serving Scouting in the communities of Davis, Woodland, Dixon, Winters, Vacaville, West Sacramento, Clarksburg, Rio Vista, 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.

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

Virtual Roundtable Meetings on the Third Thursday of Each Month at 7:00 PM

Yes, you read that right! We are having a District Roundtable! But what about District Connections? Well, the Covid-19 situation has thrown us some curveballs. In the present climate, your district feels it is best to have monthly roundtables to support the units during these uncertain times. When district meetings are allowed to happen in-person, we will likely return to District Connections once a quarter but might continue monthly District Roundtables in a virtual format in the off months.
