ADVENTURE IS WAITING…BUILD YOURS!

Welcome to Scouting!

Thank you for your willingness to try out our great organization and all the fantastic benefits it has to offer your child. Scouting is about character development and having confidence in yourself to Be Prepared! The Boy Scouts of America is the largest youth organization in the U.S. with nearly 3 million youth members and 1.1 million registered adult leaders. These members make up the 122,582 local Scout units. Our program is a family program, one that we hope will become part of your family. Our goal is that you will come to enjoy Scouting just as much as your child. This page is designed to help you become familiar with Scouting and hopefully answer some questions you may have.

Have you joined a Scouting unit?

If not, there’s a fast and easy way website (www.beascout.org) where you can find a Scouting unit close to you. There are programs for boys age 6 through 20 and for girls 14 through 20.

Getting started as a new parent and leader

Once you’ve joined Scouting, there are lots of resources available within your new Scouting unit, your district (a geographical service area of several dozen Scouting units.), and through your Mount Baker Council (the local Scouting entity, made up of seven districts). If you need help finding your local resources, please contact us at 425-338-0380 or council606@scouting.org.
