Western Gateway District
Serving the communities of Western Monroe County, including Greece, Hilton, Spencerport, Brockport, Hamlin, Gates, Chili, Churchville, and Scottsville.

Welcome to Our New District

Welcome to Western Gateway District! We are excited to be serving our communities with Scouting programs. Our District serves all of western Monroe County, including Greece, Hilton, Brockport, Hamlin, Spencerport, Gates, Chili, Churchville, and Scottsville. This area was formerly served by Lighthouse District and Black Creek District. With this new service area, the district leadership team is excited to build a strong culture of service and support all our Scouting units. 

 

Important News on Cub Scout Adventure Camp

Cub Scout families – due to generous donations to our campership fund, the Council is offering a special $50 youth registration price for Cub Scout Adventure Camp at Cutler for any Packs who register with at least 4 scouts and pay in full by March 31.

In addition to this deal, Western Gateway District is hosting two sessions of Camp with special programs. The theme is “Life is Sweet”, with special candy-themed programs. While WG packs can register for any session, Sessions Three and Six are the only sessions you can get these special programs hosted by our District.

Thank you to District Event Hosts
The District Activities team held a Scoutmaster’s meeting at the 2022 Klondike Derby. At that meeting, units present volunteered to host upcoming District events through May 2023! The units that volunteered are:
  • Spring Rendezvous – May 20-22, 2022 – Troop 18 Greece
  • Fall Camporee – September 23-25, 2022 – Troop 218 Spencerport
  • Klondike – January 27-29, 2023 – Troop 92 Spencerport
  • Spring Camporee – May 19-21, 2023 – Troop 178 Chili

Thank you to these superstar units! The District team is currently seeking units to host the Fall Camporee in September 2023 and future activities beyond that. Get in touch with District Activities Chair Pete Miles if interested.

 
We Want You!
With the formation of our new District, we are looking for more hands on deck at the District level to help accomplish our mission of supporting our units and our communities. There are a variety of District positions great and small, on both the District Committee and in the Commissioner Corps. If you or a Scouter you know would be interested in serving in a role, get in touch with the District Key 3 (listed at the right), your unit commissioner, or any Scouter you may know who already serves in a District role. We would love to have you! Volunteering at a District level puts you in touch with more Scouters and helps create a stronger network of Scouting in our service area. 
 
District Roundtable
Unit leaders – remember to join us for District Roundtable at Cosgrove Middle School Library in Spencerport, 7pm on the first Wednesdays of each month. Roundtable is the best venue to receive information and supplemental training, as well as to network and idea share with Scouters from across our District. Each unit should be sending at least one leader to Roundtable each month. If you have any questions, please contact your unit commissioner or the Roundtable team listed in the sidebar.
