DEVELOPING SCOUTING’S PHILANTHROPIC FOUNDATION OD

Couple supports Scouting with outsized achievements and contributions.


harles M. “Chuck” Pigott spent his working career as CEO of PACCAR


Inc., helping bring goods to families and businesses in the form of Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks. As an Eagle Scout, former BSA National President, and longtime sup- porter of Scouting, Chuck’s impact is more visible, perhaps most notably at Camp Pigott, a facility of the Chief Seattle Council. Camp Pigott, formerly


known as Camp Omache, had been closed for a dozen years when Pigott played a pivotal role in rebuilding and reopening the dilapidated 30-year-old camp in 2003. In addition to a significant gift from the Pigott family, Chuck raised additional funds by appealing to his many con- tacts in the local business community. With experience as a


member of the boards of directors for organizations including Boeing and The Seattle Times, Chuck was able to recruit acquaintances and business colleagues for


help raising $3 million to rebuild the camp. When the fundraising and recon- struction were through, the camp sported a new main building with a kitchen and cafeteria, as well as boat storage, a trading post, and an infirmary. The buildings received


new restrooms, and campers got tent platforms, while a ropes course and climbing tower were added for the adventure-minded. Today, the 150-acre camp hosts summer camps with canoeing, shoot- ing sports, and additional activities, as well as leader training, Order of the Arrow gatherings, and other events. In 2011, Chuck and


Yvonne also made a sig- nificant gift to the BSA to develop the Charles Pigott Base Camp at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia. As a flagship camping facility, the Charles Pigott Base Camp will be an environmentally friendly, programmatically diverse installation whose example will encourage local Boy
