District Leadership

The Thunderbird District has a great group of volunteers that work hard to provide quality programs, training, activities, and much more to give our Scouts an exciting Scouting experience. To contact one of our District leaders, click here.


Youth membership is the Life Blood of the Boy Scouts of America. The only way to maintain a healthy membership is to provide top quality District Activities, promote the importance of Summer Camp, and provide the best Training available to every registered Adult Leader. We strive to do the very best job we can in these key areas. For information on membership and recruiting click here.


Every youth member in the Thunderbird District deserves a trained leader. Whether you are brand new to Scouting, you have just taken on a new position with your unit, or you just want to update your knowledge in your current position, click here.
