District Leadership


Roundtables are fantastic opportunities to learn from Scouting professionals and volunteers on programe ideas, implementation, and changes. Normally these meetings are held monthly. Because of the smallness of Cachuma District in size, but not in the heart of Scouting, our volunteers can attend Roundtable sessions in either Santa Barbara or Santa Maria.

Santa Barbara Roundtables are held at the Santa Barbara LDS Church on Santa Barbara Street on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7 pm. Check out the South Coast District page.

For the Live Oak District Roundtables, check out the Live Oak calendar of events.


Cachuma District now has integrated webpage in conjunction with the Council, Rancho Alegre, and the other four Districts. We want to invite you to submit articles, event information, and pictures for Cachuma District activities.

Currently, Council Webmaster Wayne Rascati from Goleta is putting our page together. You can contact him at He would particularly like pictures (landscape) of Cachuma activities to put in the rotating picture show at the top of our webpage. The pictures you see now are from our joint Camporee with Live Oak District several years ago.

Also, Cachuma District's own Brad Ross is the editor of the Council Newsletter. If your adult leadership and parents are not receiving this newsletter, please send their name and email address to Wayne at

    National Outdoor Awards

    Do you enjoy camping under the stars, rafting a whitewater river, or hitting the trail afoot, on a bike or even on a horse? Can you pitch a tent, find your way, and bandage an ankle using only materials in your pack? If so, the National Outdoor Badges are for you. If you are a Boy Scout, Varsity Scout or Venturing Scout and think you are tough and disciplined enough to hike or ride the miles, camp the nights, and run the rivers or lakes then visit the click HERE to see how to earn the new National Outdoor Badges or possibly the National Medal for Outdoor Achievement!
