Join us for our Pinewood Derby Car show & Race March 11, 2023 at Coastal Farm & Ranch Salem, Oregon
The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America is to provide an educational program for youth and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law
The Scouting program has specific objectives, commonly referred to as the “Aims of Scouting.” They are character development, leadership development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Leadership development is also one of Scoutings eight methods contributing to both good character and good citizenship.
Adventure Starts Here!
At Unit 7009, we are honored to be patrons of the Pacific Northwest. From Mount St. Helens and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, to Bend's Three Sisters to the rugged terrain of the Eagle Cap Wilderness, Unit 7009 has done it all...well, almost all.
And that's why we tend to spend at least one weekend each month venturing into the world. And we can't wait to have you join us on our next excursion as we learn lifelong skills and gain a care and passion for the great outdoors and the world around us.
CHECK OUT SOME OF THE THINGS WE HAVE DONE
From hiking, biking, fishing and camping to backpacking, urban walks, park adventures, horseback riding, canoeing, shooting sports there's never a dull moment at Unit 7009!
Here, our Scouts discover the joy of adventure and the exhilaration of accomplishing more than you ever thought possible.
