Thunderbird District serves western Polk County including Bartow, Fort Meade, Lakeland, and Mulberry.
Welcome to Thunderbird District!
Whether you are new to the Scouting program or have many years of experience as a youth or adult leader, we are pleased to have to join us. Thunderbird District volunteers proudly serve youth in the Greater Tampa Bay Area Council through Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Venturing, Sea Scout, and Exploring units. Most of our district meetings take place in the Scout building at First Presbyterian Church, 175 Lake Hollingsworth Drive, Lakeland 33801.
