Creating meaningful family memories

Serving all kinds of families

Scouting appeals to what matters to parents (family time) and children (fun!) alike.

Whether trekking through an exciting new adventure, or learning a valuable new skill side by side, Scouting is something girls and boys and moms and dads can enjoy.

And, since families come in all shapes and sizes, we never stop developing programs and support so all families can benefit from the Scouting experience.

Storytellers | Meet Norah and Colton

Norah and Colton are twins, but Norah is one minute older — and it shows. 

Standing at the edge of Bradley Lake in Puyallup, Washington, with a fishing rod, 9-year-old Norah McCurdy shouted encouragement to her twin brother. 

“Nice job, Colton,” she said as he prepared to cast. Then — “Colton, it’s getting twisted!” 

Colton McCurdy, who’s blind, asked, “What’s getting twisted?” 

“The rod,” said Norah. 

A moment later, Andrew McCurdy — the twins’ father and Cub Scout Pack 274 Bear Den leader — jumped in to help untangle the fishing line.
