Volcano Scouting is proud to offer overnight programs and single-day events designed by scouts, for scouts! With support from adult Scouters and our partners, we provide high school students with the opportunity to organize schedules, plan menus, develop ceremonies, draft budgets, and lead education programs. Each year, we host upwards of 150 scouts and adult leaders from across the Pacific Northwest at Mount St. Helens. These participants engage in a variety of outdoor programs that focus on stewardship, education, adventure, and leadership. You can learn about this year's program below!

Our team is currently evaluating our program options for Summer 2021 with the Mount St. Helens Institute. The health and safety of our staff and participants is our utmost concern. Please stay tuned for more information regarding in-person and virtual programming. Thank you for your patience.


Join Volcano Scouting for yet another interactive virtual merit badge experience this Summer 2021! Simply choose which merit badges to pursue from our list of offerings and engage with both synchronous and self-paced asynchronous programming to earn credit towards merit badge completion. Scouts can earn up to 12 merit badges related to the Distinguished Conservation Service Award and Rank of Eagle Scout.


After more than two years, Volcano Scouting is back in-person at the Mount St. Helens Science and Learning Center! As an ode to our original Mount St. Helens Super Adventure in 2015, we are hosting yet another three-day adventure experience in the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. Participants will engage in a number of coronavirus-safe outdoor activities including nature hikes, science inquiries, stewardship projects, campfire programs, and more.
