How do I register?
Contact us through the Waiting List: http://www.636mttabor.org/waiting-list/
What are the registration fees?
First time scout fee is $100. Costs will cover one-year registration with the national Baden-Powell Service Association and the 636th Mt. Tabor, the group neckerchief and the WFIS patch (one time costs), and patches for one year. Additionally, scouts are responsible for acquiring a proper uniform, and there may be costs associated with some outings. Scholarships are available, no questions asked.
When, where and how often will the 636th meet?
Scout meetings are held on the first and third Sundays of each month; locations vary depending on activity.
When did we start?
The 636th started scout meetings in May 2014.
We were inspired by the success of 55th Cascadia, which was Portland’s first BPSA Scout Group. We say inspired, but really, they were at capacity and had no room for other scouts… so they helped us start the 636th Mt. Tabor!
We planned for a year, attended the 55th’s First Hullabaloo in June of 2013, and completed the Brownsea training in September 2013. In Fall 2013, the 636th Mt. Tabor was chartered, held several planning meetings with interested adult leaders, and, together with the 55th Cascadia, established not-for-profit status with the State of Oregon.
The 636th Mt. Tabor is a member of the Multnomah Service Cooperative, a 501(c)(3). Tax ID is 46-3844724
