Welcome to Frontier District

The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral decisions throughout their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. You will find tons of information on this site as we bring it up to speed on current events in the District. If you do not receive emails from Frontier District and would like to please create an account. Once you create an account make sure you signup for the Frontier District E-List.


Roundtables play a significant role in providing continuous supplemental training for unit leaders. This monthly event provides program topic guidance and structure suggestions for unit leaders. Frontier District has an all new Roundtable program - 1st Thursday of the month 7-8:30pm - Bethany Lutheran Church, 4500 E Hampden Ave. 

May Roundtable

On May 3rd, 2018, the Round Table Theme is Obedient/Wheel Into Summer.

The breakout on the Boy Scout side will be talking about Bike Safety and Passing the Torch Succession Planning.  On the Cub Scout side we will be discussing new program updates for Autumn.

We will also be having a special Bike Safety and Maintenance clinic for anyone interested!

We hope to see you there!

Register your unit here for an Investment in Character presentation.

If you want to give and missed your unit presentation, you may do so here.

Popcorn Sales

You can start selling popcorn for 2018 already online!  Visit the Trail's End website to order.

Scouts who sell at least $2,500 (online, face-to-face, or combination) in any calendar year will have 6% of their Qualified Product Sales count towards their own Trail's End Scholarship. Once enrolled, 6% of their sales each year will go towards the scholarship. Reporting of sales is not automatic, and forms must be submitted to Trail's End each year following the guidelines below. Scouts only have to hit the $2,500 minimum one time, and don't forget online sales count!

Units: Report Your Service Hours

A requirement for “Scouting’s Journey to Excellence” is to log your service hours online. Scout Masters and Troop Committee Chairs, please remember to log on and track your eagle scout service hours as well.

Internet Advancement

Internet Advancement allows you to register once as a first time user and then to log in as a returning user to submit ranks and awards for your unit members. If you log out before you submit a report, your data will be saved. Additionally, Internet Advancement will dynamically return you to the Stage you were in when you left. For example, if you have completed Stage 1 of the process, when you return, you will begin at Stage 2.

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Stage 1: Load your unit information from the council or upload an advancement file.
Stage 2: Select the members you wish to update and insert the new advancement information.
Stage 3: Submit your unit's advancement information to the council. Then print the Advancement Report packet that includes the Unit Awards Summary. Units set their own schedule for submitting reports. We recommend submitting a report every month. Each December a final report with anything not already recorded for the year should be submitted before month end.

There is also an advancement tracking tool in ScoutBook that now can be set to automatically sync with the national advancement database.  For more information, check out this post from Bryan on Scouting.

Time Grants

Time Grant Programs are corporate giving programs created to encourage volunteerism in communities where employees live and work. Companies like Exxon Mobil, Microsoft, Verizon and CenturyLink all have these great programs. Most companies follow the model below when it comes to these programs.

For every ___ hours of service given by an employee Company X will donate ____ up to ___ times a year or for a total of no more than $X per employee per year. ExxonMobil offers $500 for 20 hours of service in a quarter for a total of up to $2,000 per employee per year as long as the employee submits the request each quarter.

If you have questions or want to know if your employer has a Time Grant Program, please reach out to James Dockter.


Recruitment efforts take place throughout the year. Frontier District Scouting units conduct a coordinated effort to enroll new members to Sign up for Scouting in the Spring. The Fall Recruitment effort focuses on recruiting youth that are K through 4th grades, but is not limited to that. The Boy Scouts recruit 5th-11th grade young men and Venturing recruits 8th grade young men and women between ages 13-20.

These recruiting events are put on by Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Venturing Crews throughout the local community. Our main objective is to give multiple sign up opportunities to ensure that every youth is invited to join Scouting and to fulfill our promise to new Scouts for a great Scouting program.

Here are a few links at the council page to help order materials and more
