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!

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!
