Pacific Skyline Council was created in 1994 from a merger of the San Mateo and Stanford Area Councils.
Today, the council serves almost 8000 youth and 2500 adult volunteers in more than 250 Scouting units.
The council is headed by a board of volunteers led by current Board President, Jim Pooley and covers the area of San Mateo County and the northern part of Santa Clara County, California, on the beautiful peninsula of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Scouts and volunteers are served out of two service centers, one in Foster City and the other in Palo Alto. In addition to the service centers, the council owns and operates three separate camping facilities: Camp Oljato (ole-JAY-toe), Cutter Scout Reservation and Boulder Creek Scout Reservation.
