Welcome to the Aquila District website. Our district spans from West Seattle to Des Moines, and from Tukwila to Vashon. Aquila District was recognized with the 2018 Journey to Excellence Bronze Award! There are 50 Scouting units with more than 400 registered adult volunteers serving over 1,100 youth throughout our district. If you are interested in learning more about Scouting, please contact or visit one of the Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Explorer Posts, or Venturing Crews in our community. Our monthly Roundtable meetings are a great place for adults to learn about Scouting and exchange ideas with other Scouters all over the District.
What's more fun than crafting the coolest, fastest, car around and racing it at top speed against all your buddies? Getting to do it twice! The Aquila District Pinewood Derby is the culmination of the individual Pack Pinewood Derby events each year. Scouts are invited to bring the cars they made for competition in their Pack's events for a fun day of competition and prizes against other Scouts from all over the District. There are seven race classes including Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, Non-Scout 13 and under, Teen-Adult, Adult Unit Challenge, so we welcome all competitors. Trophies will be awarded for the top three finishers in each class. Medals will be awarded for all other participants.
This exciting seminar is delivered over a fun-filled day providing in depth information for everyone interested in learning what a Kodiak course is (Adults involved in Venturing, older Venturers interested in being a Kodiak instructor, Scouts BSA leaders, Team Coaches, Council professionals, Training chairs, and anyone else with a desire to learn more).
Topics range from who can offer a Kodiak Trek, how you can easily organize a Trek and train instructors, ideas on the many ways you can offer Kodiak, the intricacies of conducting a successful course, and benefits to councils, Crews, Troops, Teams, and youth will be covered. If you are interested in learning more about what Kodiak is and what it takes to plan a successful course, you need to participate in this Kodiak Instructors Seminar.
