Bear Paw District
The Bear Paw District Serves Mat-Su Valley to Valdez.
Districts are led by a group of volunteers and supported by a full time paid staff member called a District Executive. Districts help volunteers who work with kids provide the best program possible.
The District Committee works like a Pack or Troop Committee. The District is led by a District Chairman, Committees help carry out the mission of Scouting though Advancement, Camping, Communication, Fund Raising, Membership Growth, Service and Training.
The District also has a group of volunteers called Commissioners. In Scouting a Commissioner is a Mentor, someone who helps other Scouting Leaders be successful in their role.
