Welcome to Gila River District! 

We are the Southern area of the Grand Canyon Council in Arizona. The northern part of our district includes Tempe, Chandler, and Ahwatukee and extends south to Casa Grande, Maricopa, and further to Yuma. 

Fall Camporee is Canceled

Unfortunately, due to scheduled fall unit activities, we can not reschedule the Fall Camporee to another weekend this fall.
Refunds will be issued to all registered Scouts. We are so sorry to announce this.

We are planning now for a great camporee next fall in 2020.

Training Places

    For additional opportunities check out the Council Training page (Linked here).


    Every Unit Leader should be trained before they start working with the scouts.  They will not be able to re-register in the fall if they are not trained for their scouting position.
