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.

Yolano District Virtual Klondike Derby - Saturday, February 6th, 2021 4:00 - 7:00PM

 

We are all anxious to get outdoors again and celebrate the spirit of scouting. That day is not quite here yet, but it is coming. In the meantime, we are planning an online gathering of scouts from throughout Yolano District.

This event is open to patrols/dens/small groups from Boy Scout Troops, Webelos Cub Scout Dens, Venturing Crews and Explorer Posts. Individual scouts who don’t have a group to participate with are also welcome to attend.

Once your patrol/group/den has decided to participate, each individual should register at this link: https://ttsu.me/feb6thevent

There is no cost for this event.

Tell us what you think! If you have suggestions for fun activities to do during the virtual event, or any other questions/comments/concerns, please contact Brian at davistroop1625@gmail.com

Virtual Roundtable Meetings on the Third Thursday of Each Month

 

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.
