Last Updated 3 years ago

Important to know: The council website (www.cpcbsa.org) supports two types of accounts for event registration, 1) Unit Accounts and 2) Individual Accounts.
  • Unit Accounts are those used by Scouting packs, troops (etc) to make unit reservations for events such as summer camp, camporee, webelos woods, and other events where the unit is going as a group.
  • Individual Accounts are those used by individual persons to place reservations for themselves and their family for events such as family camp, University of Scouting, or other events which are not typically attended by units.


This article covers how to create a Unit Account. (Note: If you are in Cascade Pacific Council (Portland area), STOP - do not create a unit account as one has likely already been created for your unit. Please
