The Inland Northwest Council
Serving youth and families in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho--the Inland Northwest!
The Inland Northwest Council, serves more than 8,600 youth members with nearly 3,000 volunteer leaders in more than 500 Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Varsity teams, Venture crews, Explorer posts, and Learning for Life groups.
The council is divided into 8 districts each with staff support as well as a volunteer committee to organize and support Scouting programs in its geographic area. The council employs 22 full-time, 5 part-time and 150 temporary (for summer camp operations) employees.
Scouting was founded in 1910 in the United States and in 1915 in the Spokane area. The council was first incorporated in the State of Washington in 1922 as the Inland Empire Council. The current Inland Northwest Council was formed after a merger with the Lewis-Clark and Idaho Panhandle Councils in 1992. A local volunteer executive board governs the council with an executive committee of officers and an advisory board.
