The Frontier District is the Heart of America Council’s newest district. While the district serves the entire geographical composition of the council, the majority of Scouting units reside within Wyandotte County, Kansas and Jackson County, Missouri. The vast majority of these units will be led by paid program aides, corporate sponsored volunteers or other volunteers lacking a familial connection to the units. District leaders are tasked with mobilizing resources to ensure the growth and success of the units in the district. The Frontier District Committee is responsible for carrying out four standard functions: membership, finance, program and unit service.

Urban Scouting BBQ
16th Annual Urban Scouting BBQ
Barney Allis Plaza (12th and Wyandotte)
June 14, 2013, 11:00 am - 2:00pm
Since 1998 the Urban Scouting BBQ has raised over $250,000 for the Urban Scouting program here in the Kansas City area. The success of this event has made it possible to provide urban youth the opportunity to become Boy Scouts by reducing the cost of Scout registration, handbooks, uniforms and other program essentials.
Your participation and contribution to our 2013 Urban Scouting BBQ will help the Urban Scouting program continue to serve at-risk youth in the Kansas City Metropolitan area. Please consider making a donation and joining us for a great lunch.
Individual tickets are $10.00 which includes a Pulled Pork sandwich, Pit Beans, Chips and a Drink. This years BBQ is being prepared by American Royal Grand Champion PLOWBOYS BBQ. Sponsorships are also available.
