Welcome!

The Phoenix District welcomes you!

The Phoenix District of the Sam Houston Area Council - Boy Scouts of America serves the Klein ISD area, west of Kuykendahl Road.

Most Phoenix District events and activities can be found via the menu pages on the left side of your screen - most of these are open to the public.  The center section shows what's happening in the near future, but you'll need a username to access any additional info there.  The right side shows our calendar for the next few weeks; you'll have to log in to access the full calendar.  All registered adults in the Phoenix District now have usernames (since Tuesday 10 April 2012).  If you haven't received yours, please click "Request Access" on the left.

Once you're logged in, you can use our filters to view only the info you need!

 

Yours in Scouting,

THE PHOENIX DISTRICT
