About the Cascade Pacific Council
Cascade Pacific Council (#492) provides services and youth-development programs to families and community organizations in eighteen counties of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington states. Five key focus areas ensure outstanding opportunities for youth and adult members:
Leadership: Scouting’s purpose is to prepare young people for a lifetime of leadership. Our nation will never outgrow the need for thoughtful, responsible leadership. The values and lessons of Scouting will never go out of style.
Achievement: The Scouting experience includes learning valuable skills and achieving meaningful goals. The Boy Scouts of America promotes action—taking initiative to do things that better individuals, strengthen relationships, and support communities.
Character: Through its methods and program, Scouting helps shape and build in youth the many qualities that guide good decision making in life. Scouting’s lessons last a lifetime.
Service: The commitment by adults helps build a straight road for our youth to follow into the future. Scouting helps youth of America find—in themselves and in the world around them— more than they thought possible.
Outdoors: Learning to appreciate our world and our place in it remains essential to the Scouting experience. Youth today face many distractions. Scouting promotes active involvement in the enduring nature of the Scouting experience.
Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
The Cascade Pacific Council, Boy Scouts of America, fosters a culture of diversity and inclusion that makes it enriching to participate, volunteer and work in the Scouting program.
We invite all people to get involved in Scouting, mindful of the importance of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, gender identity, socioeconomic status, religion, physical ability and political belief.
We are committed to creating a positive, safe, and welcoming environment for all, valuing diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences that will grow and strengthen our movement and continue to make us a valued contributor to the communities we serve.
Impact for Generations.
Prepared for Life.
This is more than a motto. It is a manifesto. It is our promise to the community and to every parent and child who Scouts with us. By Scouting in the Cascade Pacific Council of the Boy Scouts of America, every youth can learn to make an impact on the world around them and be more prepared for career and life.
