It's an exciting time to be involved with Boy Scout s of America! February 1 st  marks the  day that we officially welcome girls to join Troops  in Scouts BSA. Girls and young  women will now have the opportunity to earn BSA's h ighest rank - Eagle Scout!

Last year at this time, girls were added to the Cu b Scout Family Program. All Girl Packs  were created or existing Packs added Girl Dens. Si sters and friends were no longer  sitting on the sidelines - they jumped right in! I f you look at all the photos available on  social media, you will see the excitement and pride  as these Scouts wear their uniforms,  participate in pinewood derbies, outdoor adventures,  and earn advancement.  Nationwide, over 70,000 girls joined Cub Scouting w ith 168 becoming a part of Mount  Baker Council. 

Scouts BSA is now setup with Troops for boys and T roops for girls. We are expecting  ten Troops for girls by this May with some hitting  the ground running on day one. One of  our new Troops is heading off to winter camp and th e trail to First Class all on the same day.  More Troops will become active as our Cub Scouts tr ansition to Scouts BSA during their  Arrow of Light and crossover ceremonies this spring . Our council anticipates about 15  or more Troops for girls starting this year. 

There are so many challenges and choices to make fo r the youth of today that it's great  to see BSA programs expand. Now more youth will be  able to live by the Scout  Oath and Law as well as experience the programs and  camps Boy Scouts of America  has to offer. I challenge you to be supportive, ge t involved, share your experience and  spread the word about these updates and welcome all  new members to Scouts BSA!

Scout Me In!

In September of 2018, a District Boundary Task Force was  established with the  objective to evaluate and propose enhancements for t he service our Council  provides our membership once the Church of Jesus Chr ist of Latter-day  Saints no longer participates as a chartered partne r with Boy Scouts of  America. While we realize a share of its members wi ll continue in Scouting,  and will be welcomed into our traditional units, we  are aware that there will  be a loss of membership of the 106 Scouting units loc ated across the  Council. This District Boundary Task Force is led by o ur Vice-President of District  Operations and our Council Commissioner. They recrui ted representatives'  from every district to serve on the committee so th at each District had a  voice in any proposed changes.
