2020: The Year of the COVID-19 Global Pandemic

When the world shut down, we showed grit.


The day the coronavirus pandemic hit and shut everything down, thousands of Scouts, volunteers and Cascade Pacific Council staff did more than pivot to survive.

Scouts showed grit.

WE took a 110-year old handbook and recreated Scouting for a new era. But we also served our communities, adventured with family and grew in leadership skills, just as we’ve done for more than a century.

Here are just some of the stats and facts that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that GRIT STARTS HERE.

What did Scouts in the CPC do during the pandemic? We made masks for healthcare workers, cleared graffiti, earned thousands of advancement awards, hiked thousands of miles with our families and so much more.

Programs Developed by Staff & Volunteers in 2020

2,059 Scouts across the USA earned thousands of merit badges & advancement awards taught by CPC volunteers and staff.

We shipped 3,920 Adventure Kits to 40 states. Families hiked more than 2,300 miles and completed hundreds of adventure challenges

More than 450 families enjoyed safe, state park-like camping on CPC properties on the Oregon Coast and the Cascade Mountains.

Scouts, Volunteers and Families across the CPC continued to serve their community

The Future of Scouting

In this new era of Scouting, boys and girls continue to have epic adventures, families will connect while camping on our nationally-recognized properties, and our program will evolve to inspire unparalleled personal growth.

As always, youth who become Scouts in the Boy Scouts of America grow in confidence, character and capabilities that prepare them for career and life.  They learn to persevere with a positive attitude and experience exponential personal growth.

They grow in GRIT and are ready to serve while making an impact in their communities that lasts generations.

There are a multitude of ways you can make an impact for generations.

Cascade Pacific Council’s goal is to create a safe, welcoming environment where every youth has an opportunity to belong and where they will have an unparalleled experience in the outdoors.  Scouting provides skills that will last a life-time.
