The time you spent this past summer at Cub Day Camp, hiking trails, herding Scouts to the dining hall, and singing campfire songs helped build your Scouts’ sense of adventure, teamwork, and ability to overcome challenges.
Chances are you helped those Scouts create a handful of memories they will keep for the rest of their lives. That same volunteer time, which has already had a profound effect on the youth around you, could have a huge impact financially for Scouting.
Please take the time today to log in your BSA Volunteer Hours.
This process provides essential funding for the same camps and activities your Scouts enjoyed this summer here in Chief Seattle Council. And, for every 50 hours you volunteer, your pack or troop will receive 100 Scout Bucks that can be used for council and district activities.

As the new Chair of the Sammamish Trails District, I feel both honored and humbled in taking on this new role. Three are a lot of changes on our doorstep. Most notably having girls join our general scouting programs. This is a big change, but we will handle it, as we have with all the changes we've implemented over the last 100 years, with a focus on what is best for the youth we serve. Please join me in recommitting and re-energizing ourselves in putting forth the best youth program, for both boys and girls, who are the leaders of our future.
