Welcome to the Green River District website. Our district serves the communities of Kent, Newcastle, Renton, and Skyway.
Outdoor skills are critical to the success of the Scouting program, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills will provide the expertise needed to plan, execute, and enjoy a successful and fun outdoor program. This hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the outdoors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank.
Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills is required for all Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Varsity Scout Coaches in order to be considered trained. Completion of this course, along with Youth Protection and Scoutmaster Specific trainings, will enable direct contact leaders to be rechartered in your unit as a Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster. This training is also recommended for second year Webelos leaders and Troop Committee members too.

2019 Klondike Derby!
This is Green River District’s winter event – similar to Camporee games – but held in the snow.
WHO: All: Scout Patrols, Venturing Crews, and Webelos Dens may participate. Units attending will receive participation ribbons and all scouts attending will receive a cool, 2019 Klondike patch!
The Klondike Derby originates from the Klondike gold rush era, where miners tested their skills against the elements for precious nuggets of gold. Some struck it rich and, some not so rich. Likewise, Patrols and Dens will be awarded gold nuggets by competing against the clock and each other in a series of games based on scouting skills. Each patrol’s “mining” success will be based on how well they follow instructions, apply their scout skills, work as a patrol in team fashion and show off their scout spirit. Their efforts will be rewarded with “gold nuggets”.
