Northwest District Activities

Minimize

The Northwest Activities Committee provides district-wide events that units can add to their unit's program. We provide Cub Scout unit events and Boy Scout/Venture unit level events. Each event is program level designed. The District Activities Committee also works with Council Activities and Civic Service Committee on Council-wide events.

District events are managed by the District Activities Committee with the help of district units. The Activities Committee also works with other district committees to help them present their program features at district events. A prime example is the District Dinner. All district committees have a part of this events put on by the District Activities Committee.
