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 AIMS AND METHODS OF BOY SCOUTING:
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.
