About Us

For over one hundred years, Boy Scouts of America has provided programs with a singular mission of preparing young people for adulthood, and to be responsible citizens.

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.

Looking for a Charity to Support?

The Cascade Pacific Council is one of the most program and property rich of all the Scouting councils in the country.  To attract this century's busy youth we need to continually monitor and update our service based on the needs of the next generation.  Our technology, facilities and basic program offerings need to be renewed and refunded each year.  Contact us at info@cpcbsa.org or 503 226-3423 to speak with someone further on how you may invest in the future of our youth.

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.
