Welcome to the Arapahoe District


Recharter Is Open!!

Recharter opened on 10/01/18. In the BSA, a charter authorizes an organization to operate BSA Scouting units. It certifies the agreement between a chartered organization – an organization that agrees to utilize Scouting as a part of its service to youth– and the Boy Scouts of America, setting expectations for the quality of program to be delivered.

DUE DATE for Arapahoe District: November 1, 2018

You can find additional information on the 2019 Recharter Renewal Page.
