Welcome to the AMAZING Columbia Gorge District!
This website is designed for you to find information about what is happening in the Columbia Gorge District and who to contact if you have questions.
A Scouting District is a geographical area of the local BSA Council, determined by the council executive board. District leaders, typically comprised of key scouters and civic leaders in the area, mobilize resources to ensure the growth and success of units within the district's territory. Districts are responsible for carrying out four primary functions; membership, finance, program, and unit service.
The Columbia Gorge District supports Scouting units in the East Vancouver, Camas, Hockinson and Washougal area communities in Clark County.
Benefits of Scouting. The Scouting movement provides superb opportunities for youth and adults to gain experience in outdoor skills, leadership, and meet friends with many talents. We currently support 31 Cub Packs, 44 Troops, 15 Varsity Teams, and 20 Venturing Crews that include 1,875 Scouts and 903 adult Scouters.
National Jamboree. For serious adventure and a place to make memories for a lifetime, consider signing up your Scout for the Cascade Pacific Council contingent National Jamboree 2013. Click on the banner to the left for more information.
