Welcome to the District 18 Western Skies District website - serving Scouts in Riverton, Herriman, and Bluffdale.


national key three

Message from the National Key 3 on the new Announcement.

This is an exciting and important time for the BSA. Our recent historic decision to serve families by inviting girls to Cub Scouts and delivering a program that will enable them to earn the rank of Eagle Scout sustains our mission of preparing more young people to live the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. 

We have expanded our scope, but our mission and Scouting’s time-tested, proven programs remain unchanged.

We have recently been contacted by the JL Sorenson Rec Center about their merit badge classes. These are great opportunities to help your scouts earn the Swimming, Lifesaving, and First Aid Merit Badges. They are in need of some help with these classes. They are looking for Merit Badge Counselors! If you have an interest in volunteering to help with these classes, please contact us and we can put you in contact with the right person at the rec center!
