Thunderbird District serves over 1100 youth.
Our primary focus is in the school districts east of I-205, including Centennial, Corbett, David Douglas, Estacada, Gresham-Barlow, North Clackamas, Oregon Trail, Parkrose, and Reynolds.
Providing a quality Scouting program to these young men and women would not be possible if it was not for the support and dedication of over 400 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.
Keep in Touch!
We have a Group Facebook page: Request to join if you want to be connected to other Thunderbird folks.
