North Cascades District
of the Mount Baker Council - Boy Scouts of America
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
Serving Whatcom, Skagit, San Juan Counties and Whidbey Island
The North Cascades District has a rich history of Scouting and is proud to serve the families of four counties. The peoples of these counties are diverse from the Naval Air Station on Whidbey Island to the lumber jacks of Skagit Valley. We serve the families of the dairy farms of Lynden to the fishing community of Friday Harbor. Our district takes its name from the mighty mountains that contain the most rugged national park in our state. For those of us that call the North Cascades home there is no where better place to raise a family, grow up, or be a SCOUT!
The adventure of Scouting is waiting for you! We offer programs for young men and women Kindergarten through age 20.

Upcoming District Events
Baden-Powell Dinners in North Cascades
Our District Director and other members of the District Key 3 will be hosting monthly dinners through out North Cascades District.
With COVID-19 the Baden-Powell dinners haven’t been really possible with many restaurants not allowed to have groups larger than 5 and our need to social distance. BUT the Dinner will start up again in August! Until we can return to having dinner together in person Sven is inviting you to have dinner over Zoom! Register for the Zoom meeting at northcascadesscouting.org think of something yummy to bring for dinner and share with the group while we talk SCOUTING!
Cub Twilight/Day Camp
For the safety of all our Scouting family Cub Scout Day camp this summer is shifting to a virtual style event with live components and managed shooting days with limited Scouts on site at once. Scouts will receive an activity box with crafts and other things to do during the week. Three daily check-in sections will allow them to ask questions and share their activities. Each camp includes an in-person Shooting Sports day!
17 Days x 17 Sustainable Development Goals Challenge
Launching on April 15th will be a 17 Day Challenge to learn about the 17 SDG’s of the World Scouting “Scouts for SDG Project”. There are two parts to each daily challenge:
First is to look over the daily Activity Sheet which will available here as a PDF file. Read over the sheet with your scout and do some of the thought exercises to help you and your Scout have a conversation about each fo the goals.
Second is to visit a daily challenge Fact Finding Mission. These are Google Forms created to mirror the Scouts Ireland forms and “owned” by North Cascades District. The Fact Finding Mission will allow your Scout the chance to share their thoughts on the goal of the day and what they learned.
