Powderhorn District

The Powderhorn District, covering western Oneida County and all of Madison County, is one of four districts in the Leatherstocking Council. The district serves a total of over 700 youth in 45 units.

The administrative functions of the district and its committees are overseen by the volunteer District Chairman, and the unit-service aspects of district operations are managed by the volunteer District Commissioner. The professional District Executive advises the district's top leadership, and serves as a sounding board for concerns. Together, these individuals make up the District Key-3.
