About Mountain

The Chief Seattle Council is divided into service areas with leadership provided by the District Executive, District Chairman, and the District Commissioner. Except for the District Executive, the committee is staffed by volunteers.

The Alpine District has served the greater communities of Issaquah, Newcastle, Renton, Sammamish, and the Snoqualmie Valley including Fall City and North Bend since 1996. There are 35 Scouting units with more than 400 registered adult volunteers serving over 900 youth. The Mount Tahoma District has served the greater communities of Auburn, Black Diamond, Covington, Kent, Maple Valley, Newcastle, Pacific, Renton, and Skyway since 2018.  If you are interested in learning more about Scouting, please contact or visit one of the Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, or Exploring Posts in our community at Scout Me In.
