District Overview

Mountain Valley District (MVD) is aptly named because anywhere in our district, we are blessed with the view of one of six incredible mountain ranges, including the Bridger, Gallatin and the Absaroka mountains. The mountains and rivers are our Scouting playground, providing a place where boys and girls learn leadership skills, explore their abilities, expand their potential, make friends and have adventures. MVD has an active District program of three Camporees each year and activities like the Cub Scout Shoot, District Pinewood Derby, and Day Camp.

All of our Cub Scout Packs, Scouts, BSA Troops and Venturer Crews are open to boys and girls. Youth can join their age-appropriate program: Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing, or the Fire or Police Explorer Posts. Adult Scouters find a welcoming community with like-minded parents on the importance of service, fitness and the wholesomeness of being outside. Scouting – with all of its adventures – is for the entire family

Training Much of the training is on-line, but if you like live training, we may be able to offer that too! The best way to find training is to look at the MVD Calendar. The courses for outdoor training, which include Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills, BALOO, and Wilderness First Aid, are only taught once each year. If you need these classes, sign up as early as possible and mark your calendar!

Many training courses are also online. Some classes, such as Youth Protection Training (required annually) and Hazardous Weather (required every 2-years), can only be taken online. You will need to create an account or sign into your account on

Remember, if you need training at your site, you can always ask! Fill out the HELP form and let us help.

Thank you for being part of Scouting!
