Section W6W was formed after the 2008 Western Region BSA Alignment. The headquarters cities of its member Lodges include San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Tucson. The second W stands for West, as it sits West of fellow Area 6 Section W6E (East).
The new section in 2008 largely comprised the territory of Section W4C until later changes were made. For a brief period, Gila Lodge was a member of Section W6W before being moved to Section W6E.
Tiwahe Lodge was scheduled to be moved to Area 6 in 2008, but stayed in Section W4S at the request of the Lodge’s Supreme Chief of the Fire and approval by the Area Director. San Diego-Imperial Council moved to the BSA Area 6 as scheduled. In 2011, Tiwahe Lodge formally voted to join the Section. Tiwahe was introduced as a member Lodge at the 2011 Section W6W Conclave.
The lineal Section (Area XII-E/W4C/W5A/W6W) celebrated its 60th Conclave (or Conference) in 2016.
