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.

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 boys 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.
