Scouting needs YOU! It costs the Mount Baker Council a little more than $200 per a scout to provide the support to the scouts, their families, leaders and charter organizations. The Mount Baker Council is dedicated to help the next generation of scouts become the leaders of tomorrow.

Thank you for your support.
