Ft. Clatsop District Summer Parades

With summer fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about parades. There are several parades on our district in which scouts can participate. Scout units wishing to participate should contact the parade organizers to register. (Those wishing to participate in either of Astoria’s Regatta Parades, please contact Ft. Clatsop District Program Chairman Laurie Kautz at as we typically enter as a district).

As with any public appearance scouts should use the following guidelines…

Scout Field Uniform (formerly known as Class A uniform). Shirts should be tucked in to scout pants or neat, clean blue jeans (no camo pants or gym shorts please). Hats, neckerchiefs and tie slides as appropriate for your scout unit. Closed toe shoes and socks.

Scouts should always conduct themselves by the scout law.

Parades do count toward service hours, so make sure your scout unit logs their hours at

This week in our camps

Camp Cooper work weekend is taking place this Friday through Sunday. The good weather will help us prepare camp for this summer’s programs including NYLT and summer camp. Next weekend Camp Pioneer, Butte Creek Ranch (Gilbert) and Scouter’s Mountain will all have Scouters work weekends. These annual events are vital to opening summer camp. What a great way to catch up with old friends and meet new ones while enjoying the camaraderie of making sure our camps are in good shape for our kid’s summer experience. You don’t have to be proficient with a hammer or saw to help. Touching up paint on our camp signs, washing windows or general cleaning are all needed to make our camps look great. For details on how you can participate click this link Work Weekends or call your camp ranger.
