The Mount Baker Council is challenging every Scout and adult (leader or parent) to participate in a Community Service Campaign for the month of August.
One million minutes of service = 16,666 hours.
There are about 3,500 Scouts in our Council. That breaks down to 286 minutes, or 4.75 hours per Scout. That’s just over 1 hour per week in August.
We are also encouraging adults, family members, and friends to join in the fun and give back to your community. Participation is easy – pick a service project and record your hours using this link.
We want to track EVERY minute from EVERY person – Scout, sibling, friend, or adult.
We will be tracking hours on the Mount Baker Council website, so update your hours as soon as you do them so we can see where we’re at. The top 3 Units (hours per capita) will receive a free weekend of camping at Fire Mountain that can be used as soon as this type of activity is allowed at Camp.
If you need ideas for what you can do to give back to your community, there is a list on
the Mount Baker Council website under the Virtual Campsite – Service Projects page.
You are also welcome to come up with your own ideas.
Don’t forget to post your activities on Facebook or Instagram using #MillionMinutes and tag @MountBakerBSA.
Help us reach our goal of One Million Minutes!
The Million Minute Challenge runs from August 1st through August 31st. Minutes from any community service project, including Eagle projects should be logged in both the Million Minute Challenge link and your Journey to Excellence (JTE) dashboard.
