Thunderbird District Home

Welcome to the Thunderbird District

Thunderbird District serves approximately 1,300 youth and is served by the support and dedication of over 700 adult volunteers.

Our primary focus is in these school districts, east of I-205:
Boy Scout stamp

Centennial Corbett David Douglas
Estacada Gresham-Barlow North Clackamas
Oregon Trail Parkrose Reynolds

 

Providing our quality program to these young men and women would not be possible if it was not for the support and dedication of over 700 adult volunteers of the Thunderbird District.  Thank you to each and every one of you for your commitment to creating strong leaders and a better tomorrow.

 


Did you know .......

......we have a new District Executive?

Erick accepted a position in Idaho and is now the District Director for the Grand Teton Council - Yellowstone District. We wish Erick best of luck in his new position and welcome our new District Executive: Tim Melcher - feel free to check out the Professional's Lore Page for a little of Tim's background. And - if you missed the opportunity to meet him at the August Roundtable - be sure to attend the September Roundtable!

......that our District is striving to have 100% trained leaders in 2014 and beyond?

It's true and we need your help! We need each unit to review their list of currently trained leaders for errors. Reports were provided in your "mailboxes" at the April/May/June Roundtable meetings and a recent report was available at the August Roundtable and Tim was available at the September Roundtable to make corrections and answer questions. If your unit has not yet reviewed the training reports - please take the time to review the records and, if errors are found - have a leader submit a correction form to Tim Melcher or be sure to attend the September Roundtable to report your corrections. Click here for correction form (and be sure to attach a copy of your training certificate(s).)
If the report is accurate - please begin encouraging your leader's to get trained - Next training session is Oct. 11th, 2014. Check out our Adult Training Page for helpful information on getting your unit leaders (and yourself) trained and/or further trained. EVERY BOY DESERVES A TRAINED LEADER :-)

......Cub Scout Top Shot is Nov 22nd?

Mark the date - details coming soon.

.....it is once again that time of year to begin recognizing those special scouters and units:

.....the Thunderbird District has been working to revitalize our Unit Commissioner staff and that as of Dec. 2013 all Packs were assigned a Unit Commissioner?

Visit our Commissioners' Corner page to find out what a Unit Commissioner does, who you should contact if you don't know who your Pack's Unit Commission is, and/or how you can volunteer to be a Unit Commissioner to a unit which currently doesn't have a Unit Commissioner.
