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                    David Douglas

Corbett                        Oregon Trail

Reynolds                      Gresham-Barlow

Estacada                      Parkrose

North Clackamas

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 1,000 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.
