About Mt Olympus District
The Chief Seattle Council is divided into 9 districts 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 Mt. Olympus District serves Jefferson County from the Hood Canal Bridge to the west including Clallam County to Neah Bay. There are Scouting units in every major community with the possibility of developing more. Registered adult volunteers are provided free training and the support needed to start new units. If you are interested in learning more about Scouting, please contact or visit one of the Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, Ships or Exploring Posts in our community at Scout Me In.
