City of Olathe Open House

Twice yearly (once in the spring and fall each), the City of Olathe offers an Open House to the Boy Scouts, hosted by Mayor Michael Copeland.  This spring, the Open House will be held on Thursday night, April 30, beginning at 6:30 p.m.  It will be held at the Olathe City Hall, 100 E Santa Fe, Olathe, KS 66061.  There is no cost to attend, but space is limited, so please make sure to RSVP at


Roundtable is our monthly gathering for unit and district leaders. This is a great way to learn about upcoming events and activities, camping and training opportunities, program updates, new Scouting initiatives, and get ideas to make your Scouting program better.

Roundtables are typically held on the first Thursday of each month (except July) at 7:00 p.m. at Olathe Community of Christ Church, 15520 S Ridgeview Rd., Olathe, KS 66062.  Please note that a Roundtable date and/or location may be adjusted for holiday or seasonal reasons.

District Leadership Opportunities

The men and women who take the time to volunteer at the district level do that to help support units by running better programs; growing youth and adult participation in their Packs, Troops, Teams and Crews; and funding the activities we plan to keep young people excited about being in Scouting.  There are many different opportunities for you to share your talent with other Scouts and Scouters by volunteering at the district level.  For more about volunteering as a district leader, go to Red-Tailed Hawk District Leadership.

District leaders meet on a monthly basis.  Typically, these meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month (except July).  The Commissioner Meeting is held at 6:30 p.m., immediately followed by the Committee Meeting at 7:30 p.m.  These meetings are held at Indian Creek Community Church, 12480 S Black Bob Rd, Olathe, KS 66062.  Please note that district leadership meetings dates and/or locations may be adjusted for holiday or seasonal reasons.
