Challenger District History

Central Florida Council Shoulder Patch

Although the BSA has been around since February 8, 1910, the Central Florida Council wasn’t chartered by the BSA until 1922, with 7 original districts (one each for the 7 counties it serves – Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake, Brevard, Volusia, and Flagler), of which, #5 – Brevard being the first District covering the Challenger District area. Throughout the years, the Challenger District area has seen many different names – from Columbia, to Canaveral, and more recently Eagle District in 19xx.

Challenger District, as it is known today, was created in 20xx when the Central Florida Council split up Eagle District into 2 separate areas – Challenger District in the North, and Riverside District in the South.
