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
Good Scout Breakfast
In 2021 the Mount Baker Council is hosting a Council wide Good Scout Breakfast on June 10th, 2021. This event is being held at the Angels of the Winds Arena in Everett with a virtual viewing option. It isn’t feasible for everyone to make it to a early breakfast in Everett and after a year of virtual meetings the North Cascades District is ready to see some folks in person again. So with that we are hosting a breakfast social at the Bellingham Golf and Country Club to celebrate and support Scouting in our community. We will project the key note and other portions of the Council event without the need to drive to Everett or view alone at our desk.
