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.


2019 Charter Renewal

Charter Renewal is an annual process to reestablish and re-affirm relationship with the Boy Scouts of America. Remember: All Units Expire on December 31, 2018.
Your unit should plan to complete charter renewal via the National Internet Charter Renewal System by December 15, 2018. On time charter renewal of your unit is important. This guide will assist in the charter renewal process. Again this year the entire process can be completed online, including payment of National Fees and Boy’s Life Subscriptions, if desired.
Access codes for the Online Charter Renewal System have been sent to the Unit Key 3's and the system is open.

You can access the 2019 Charter Renewal Guide here.

If you have questions on Charter Renewal, please contact Tim Brackett, 720.201.3589, or James Dockter.


Monthly Roundtable

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.  Check out our current Roundtable Newsletter here.

When: The first Thursday of every month at 7pm.  The next will be December 6th.

Where: Bethany Lutheran Church, 4500 E Hampden Ave, Cherry Hills Village, CO 80113

What: Frontier District's December Roundtable will feature a chance for Packs and Troops to find joint opportunities, all in one place!

Any Troop that wants to recruit from Packs can set up a table that shows off the face of your unit. And pack member (Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts and families are especially welcome!) can get first-hand knowledge about the Troops in our area including their activities, leadership (and leadership opportunities), programs, and scouting philosophy. You will also get a peek at Troop calendars and see which pre-Crossover events your scouts can attend, as well as find Den Chiefs to help your pack leadership.

If your Troop is interested in setting up a table, please contact Chuck Kubin at 303.733.0254.

In the Cub Scout Roundtable, we are having a ROUND TABLE discussion. If you’re a new Pack Leader (Cubmaster, Committee Chair, Den Leader) and don’t even know what questions to ask about how to run a pack, join the club! Come meet with other pack leaders who have been leaders for awhile and know the tricks/tips/hints to keep your pack running well.

Family Scouting

The Denver Area Council is thrilled to bring the benefits of Scouting to more kids than ever!

As of August 2018, Cub Scouts is available for girls and boys. This means even more youth will have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Cub Scouting promises and be better prepared for future success. Beginning February 1st, 2019 girls will be able to join Scouts BSA (the 6th-12th grade program, previously known as Boy Scouts).

After all, the values of the Scout Law – trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent – are relevant and important values for young men and young women.

Additional Unit Resources

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!

1. Load your unit information from the council or upload an advancement file.

2. Select the members you wish to update and insert the new advancement information.

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.


Please email Tim Brackett with any comments/suggestions.
