Due to this year’s complications of COVID-19 Alpine Districts Annual Camporee was cancelled. Since the scouts of the Order of the Arrow never sit idle when struck with a new challenge they went to work to put together a Camporee on Video. Since they were working with only the resources that they had at there disposal they have done their best to make a series of videos that would highlight some of the various activities that you may see at a typical Camporee.

We encourage all the scouting families of the Alpine District young and old alike to grab your camping gear and join us anytime in May through June for Camporee on Video. Set up a tent in your backyard, your living room wherever you can and practice your scout skills with the rest of the district!

We encourage everyone to share their experience on the Alpine District Facebook Group with the #CampOnVid

  • Plant Identification
  • Ten Essentials
  • Fire Building
  • Axe Yard and Fire Building Bonus
  • Cooking

Scouting @ HomeWe are pleased to announce the Chief Seattle Councils Scouting @ Home award. This award is for those Scouts and Scouters who have continued to participate in Scouting in some form during the Covid 19 Pandemic. Because we understand the needs of each family and unit are different, the requirements for this award are intended as a guideline with the Scout’s unit leader able to adjust the requirements as needed.

Requirements for this award can be completed any time between March 1st and June 30th, 2020. The patch for this award will be available for order in mid to late June through the Council website.

Intro to Outdoor Leader SkillsIntroduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) Training is critical to the success of the Scouting program. This hands-on training provides adult leaders a practical introduction to the patrol method of a boy-led troop by teaching many of the practical outdoor skills they need to plan, execute, and enjoy a successful and fun outdoor program. In addition, the teaching methods, activities, and games model the variety of teaching used in effective and engaging Scouting programs.

IOLS is required for all Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters in order to be considered trained. Completion of this course, along with Youth Protection and Scoutmaster Specific trainings, will enable direct contact leaders to be rechartered in your unit as a Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster. This training is also recommended Troop Committee members and other volunteers looking to be more involved with their troop.

May 2020 trainings have been cancelled. Stay tuned for fall training courses.

Date: Friday, May 29th 6:00 PM to Saturday May 30th 5:00 PM
Location: Snoqualmie Valley Youth Activity Center, 152 Boalch Ave NW, North Bend
Cost: $25/pp
