Welcome to the newly formed 'Yolano' District

Serving Scouting in the communities of Davis, Woodland, Dixon, Winters, Vacaville, and Esparto

Where Scouts have fun while learning about the outdoors, responsibility, citizenship, nature and a whole lot more. Scouts are grouped by age and maturity level, gaining in experience and responsibility as they grow. Click on the "Join Scouting" tab above for information on age requirements and joining.

The Scouting program has four specific objectives, commonly referred to as the "Aims of Scouting." They are character development, citizenship training, leadership, and mental and personal fitness.

Yolano District is responsible for carrying out four standard functions: membership, finance, program, and unit service.



Roundtable is now "District Connections"

Next "District Connections" is on February 6, 2020 at 7:00 PM (in Vacaville, place TBA)

The quarterly "District Connections" has replaced what was previously monthly Roundtable meetings. In the future, there will be a District Connection each February, May, August, and November. The meeting place will move to different parts of the Yolano District each time.

Help Toys For Tots - December 21, 2019

The Marines would deeply appreciate the help of Scouts in uniform at their toy distribution on December 21, from 7:30 AM to 1:00 PM, Waite Hall, Yolo County Fairgrounds. Pizza will be served for lunch for the volunteers.

They also need help December 18 - 20 sorting toys.  This would be a great activity for Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Venturers. The sorting times are 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM.

Please contact Sue Westwood at or (530) 304-4735 for more information.



We know there is some concern on how to cover the costs of re-chartering and new Scouts joining this time of year. The Golden Empire Council will provide Units and Individual Scouts the opportunity to continue to sell popcorn by storefront sales, wagon sales and online sales. Units and Individual Scouts that did not participate in the Fall Sale can participate. Please follow the instructions to join the Sale and earn Amazon Rewards.

Unit Sales made between November 1 and December 20 will earn 35% commission. Scouts will be able to earn additional Amazon Gift Cards through the Sale. Online Sales are open until December 31.

This sale will be open Now – December 20.
