Sponsor a Scout Today!

Please help us climb to the top of the mountain to sponsor 150 Scouts and prepare young men and women for a productive and healthy lives for generations to come. We need the support of our Scout leaders and parents to reach our goal of $35,000 by June 30, 2018. The cost of delivering the Scouting program to 1,800 youth in Pasco County is $234 per Scout. Scouting is about building character, teaching citizenship, and encouraging fitness. Today more than ever, Scouting has so much to teach young people about personal responsibility, kindness, and service for the common good.  When you think of Scouting, you may think of earning merit badges, going to summer camp, and building Pinewood Derby cars. These activities and so many more are fun with a purpose to prepare young people to be participating citizens and leaders. Please consider investing today so we can move Scouting’s mission forward.

District Commissioner Team

What is a Unit Commissioner?

A Unit Commissioner is a volunteer Scouter who works directly with unit leaders to help them provide the highest quality Scouting program possible. As friends, teachers and counselors to unit leaders, Commissioners represent the ideals, principles and policies of the Scouting program while providing the resources of the district and council to the units they serve. The primary purpose of the Commissioner Team is to help units succeed.

Commissioner Team Meetings

The Commissioner Team meets monthly to review the status of our units, share unit successes, and develop methods to improve unit service throughout the district. Commissioner meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of each month via web conference.

If you have any questions, or want to volunteer as a Unit Commissioner within our district, please contact our District Commissioner, Adam Clark.

District Roundtable

Roundtables are a monthly gathering of pack, troop, team, crew, and district leaders. Attendees get the latest information on district and council events, training opportunities, BSA policies and learn about great available resources. Roundtable is an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders.

Suncoast District Roundtable is held the 2nd Thursday of each month at Harvester United Methodist Church beginning at 7:00pm.  Merit badge opportunities are available for scouts that attend as well.
