Welcome to the Crater Lake Council

Latest COVID-19 Updates

We are dedicated to keeping our Unit Leaders and Scouting families updated with the latest information regarding Scouting safely during the pandemic.

Our Central Point Service Center will be Closed on Friday, February 4th.

What is Scouting?

Scouting is the youth program designed to bring in everyone from the family to the great outdoors, learn new skills, and develop character. For more than a century, the Boy Scouts of America has instilled in children and their families a sense of accomplishment and pride, teaching them how to become future leaders of their communities.

Explore Your World!

Scouts in the Crater Lake Council get to experience what it’s like outside of their homes and schools, making the outdoors their other classroom. From basic first-aid to wilderness survival, young men and women learn the skills to thrive and care for their environment.

Explore With Friends!

In Scouting, children are able to go on adventures with friends and even meet more along the way! This is where they can develop interpersonal and leadership skills, as well as lifelong memories, that they will carry with them through the rest of their lives.

Explore Your Community!

While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.

What's New in the Crater Lake Council?

Scouting's Flagship Event is Coming in 2023!

This one of a kind event is scheduled for July 2023, and gives Scouts an experience like no other.


We have new dates for Snow Capades! Please join us on February 26th and/or March 5th for some fun in a winterland out at Camp McLoughlin at Lake of the Woods!

Adventure is Calling!

Out on Lake of the Woods, Camp McLoughlin is the prime destination for your Scouts to attend resident summer camp in 2022. Scouts are able to build friendships and gain memories that last a lifetime as they experience the great outdoors.

COMING SOON: 2022 Camp McLoughlin Camp Guide

Cub Scouts thrive out in nature. They learn the importance of the world around them, and the adventures that can be found with friends.

Scouts don’t just enjoy nature; they learn from it. Scouts take day hikes, go swimming, and embark on rugged multi-day backpacking and canoe treks.
