Welcome to the Aquila District website. Our district spans from West Seattle to Des Moines, and from Tukwila to Vashon. Aquila District was recognized with the 2016 Journey to Excellence Gold Award! There are 50 Scouting units with more than 400 registered adult volunteers serving over 1,100 youth throughout our district. If you are interested in learning more about Scouting, please contact or visit one of the Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, or Venturing Crews in our community. Our monthly Roundtable meetings are a great place for adults to learn about Scouting and exchange ideas with other Scouters all over the District.
Ahoy there matey! Join the other Cub Scouts in the District for a fun morning of making and racing sailboats at top speed! Cub Scouts will build sailboats and race them against each other to see who has the fastest boat. Races will take place in our water filled raingutter race courses, with Cub Scouts powering their boats by blowing on the sails. Scouts are encouraged to invite a buddy who is new to Scouting to join them in the regatta.
What's more fun than crafting the coolest, fastest, car around and racing it at top speed against all your buddies? Getting to do it twice! The Aquila District Pinewood Derby is the culmination of the individual Pack Pinewood Derby events each year. Scouts are invited to bring the cars they made for competition in their Pack's events for a fun day of competition and prizes against other Scouts from all over the District. There are seven race classes including Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, Non-Scout 13 and under, Teen-Adult, Adult Unit Challenge, so we welcome all competitors. Trophies will be awarded for the top three finishers in each class. Medals will be awarded for all other participants.
Embark upon your own adventure aboard the Yankee Clipper!
