Shawnee District

Shawnee District

About the District

Shawnee District proudly serves 16 counties in the beautiful eastern Bluegrass, including the Red River Gorge, the Daniel Boone National Forest, and the Buffalo Trace areas. Our district is known for the pioneer days of Daniel Boone at Fort Boonesborough and for the settlement at Eskippakithiki (now known as Indian Old Fields) of the Shawnee Indians, our district's namesake. We are also proud that our own Blue Grass Council's Scout camp, Camp McKee, sits right in the heart of our district.

District Meetings

The entire district committee, chaired by the district chair, meets on a regularly scheduled date—usually monthly. The purpose of district meetings is to build momentum, provide group continuity, ensure good coordination, and make specific assignments to committee members. The district commissioner reports on the special needs of units and requests the help of operating committees to meet those needs.

Commissioners are district leaders who coach and consult with adult Scouters in Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and Venturing crews. Commissioners help units succeed and deliver an outstanding Scouting program that meets the standards of the Boy Scouts of America.

District Committee meetings happen at 7pm on the first Thursday of the month, August thru May, at Atalo Holdings in Winchester KY. The address is 4274 Colby Rd, Winchester, KY 40391.

District Commissioner Meetings happen at 7pm on the third Wednesday of the month, August thru May, via webinar conferences.

District Roundtables

Roundtables are monthly events for volunteers at the unit level. They are a time of fellowship and training, focused on providing Scouters with program ideas, information on policy and events, and special training opportunities. Roundtables also serve as a forum for sharing experiences and enjoying fun and fellowship with other adult Scouters. When skillfully executed, the Roundtable experience will inspire, motivate, and enable unit leaders to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.

District Roundtables are held monthly on the second Thursday of the month, August thru May. Roundtables are currently held at the LDS Church in Owingsville, KY. The address is 1954 KY-36, Owingsville, KY 40351.
