About Inland Northwest Council, Boy Scouts of America
The Inland Northwest Council, #611, serves more than 2,000 youth members with over 1,500 volunteer leaders in more than 140 Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Venture Crews, and Explorer Posts. The council is divided into 4 districts, each with dedicated staff support and a volunteer committee to organize and support Scouting programs in its geographic area. The council employs 17 full-time, 1 part-time, and 100 temporary employees (for summer camp operations).
Scouting was founded in 1910 in the United States and in 1915 as the Spokane Council. The council was 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.
