Welcome to the Frontier District!

Welcome to Frontier, serving the north central part of the Ozark Trails Council. We are always looking for great volunteers to serve on our District Committee, and have excellent opportunities for you to help serve in. So whether you are all about Advancement, or maybe Training is your trigger, or Camping is cool, or possibly Community Service is your commitment, or helping others be successful…whatever drives you, let us know; we’d love to have you on board!
Join us for our monthly Committee Meeting immediately following Roundtable each month, or send David Pomerenke an email and let him know you would like more information!

If your unit has specific training needs, contact Neisha Rogers: juscritters@gmail.com
Need an Eagle Board of Review? Rose Hillhouse is your first contact: Rose.Hillhouse@yahoo.com

We look forward to helping you make everyone’s Scouting experience a success. We will see you at our Monthly Roundtable, Commissioner Meeting, and District Committee Meeting! Currently, the Commissioner Meeting is at 6pm, the Roundtable is at 6:30pm, and the Distract Committee Meeting is at 7:30pm the first Thursday of each month. We meet at The Buffalo Administrative Building located at 1323 South Ash Street in Buffalo, MO!

Help be a part of something great! We are gathering a group of Eagle Scouts to be a part of a new exhibit in the Scouting Museum!

This is an important milestone for Cubs to reach and we want to make sure we are emphasizing the importance of it!

A simple "Thank You", funny gift, or even a card are all great ways to say "You are appreciated" throughout the year.
