Welcome to the Pelathe District! We serve all of Douglas, Franklin and Anderson County in Kansas and includes the following communities: Baldwin City, Eudora, Garnett, Lawrence, Lecompton, Ottawa, and Wellsville Kansas. The district is organized to support the volunteer unit Scouters who provide the programs of the Boy Scouts of America, to the youth of this area.

Monthly District Commissioner Meetings

Commissioners are experienced Scouting volunteers who serve as friends to the unit to learn what they do well and what needs they have. Commissioners share that information so the district can better meet the needs to units to be more successful. Unit Commissioners serve as a key communication and relationship link between the unit leaders and district and council volunteers.

Commissioner Meetings are held the first Thursday of every Month (except July) at 6:00 PM at First Christian Church (1000 Kentucky St. Lawrence, KS 66044)

Monthly District Committee Meetings

The purpose of District Committee Meeting is to discuss ongoing and upcoming events, district operations, and to develop action items for current and upcoming campaigns. The District Committee and District Commissioners work together to support units with quality programs and camping opportunities, council and district Scouting initiatives, training opportunities and additional unit support.

District Committee Meetings are typically held on the third Thursday of every month (except July) at 7:00 PM at First Presbyterian Church (2415 Clinton Pkwy, Lawrence, KS 66047)
