If you would like to donate to Crater Lake Council through gifts, please contact our Council Executive, James Westfall James.Westfall@scouting.org .
Crater Lake Council is always in need of volunteers to maintain facilities and to keep the council functioning. The cost of operating a year round camps and our offices can be very expensive. In-kind service donations help us keep the cost of our programs to a minimum.
If you are interested in volunteering for any of the following projects please contact the Council Service Center at 541-664-1444 to confirm that the project has not already been taken. We have created wish lists to help guide specific donations. Call if you have a suggestion for a maintenance or improvement project that you would like to volunteer for and we can let you know if it fits our property improvement plans. All project work is subject to the approval of the Camp Ranger and Property Committee.
