2014 Scouting Calendar
March 1: At this time, online ordering for the 2014 calendar is finished as supplies are limited. If you'd like a calendar, ask at a Council Volunteer Service Center to see if you can get one of the few remaining calendars.
A new Cascade Pacifc Council wall calendar featuring local camps. The 28 page calendar, suitable for wall display, covers January 2014 through January 2015. Each month features national holidays, key dates for local Scouters, and beautiful photographs of local camps and Scouts in action. This calendar is not meant to replace the council activities calendar, but makes a great gift for any Scout or Scouter for display in their home or office.
As a camp staff member at one of the Cascade Pacific Council camps, there are a few online trainings that you will must show proof of completing upon your arrival at camp. The details for each are listed below as well as links to the online trainings at the bottom of the page.
For online trainings be sure to fill out all registration information. Upon completion you will need to print your certificates and bring a copy with you to camp. You will not be able to begin working for any camp unless proof of all required trainings are presented via the printed certificates upon arrival.

If you are currently ceritified in First Aid/CPR/AED please let your camp director know immediately so they can reduce the planned attendance of any trainings they may set up prior to camp.
