About the Buckeye Council, BSA
For more than 100 years, Scouting has helped build future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun and adventure in the outdoors. We care passionately about what is happening to kids and our communities – and are dedicated to supporting an exciting, quality program that builds better young people and our future leaders.
In the Buckeye Council, Scouting continues to improve families and our community by serving more than 8,000 youth in 12 counties in North Central Ohio: Ashland, Carroll, Columbiana, Crawford, Holmes, Marion, Morrow, Richland, Stark, Tuscarawas, Wayne, Wyandot in Ohio and parts of Hancock county in West Virginia.
The Buckeye Council is divided into seven geographical areas called districts. Each district is made up of local Scouting units called Cub Scout Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, and Exploring Posts. These units are chartered to a local school, religious organization, or community center.
HomeScouting’s Spring BreakOut Program
In March, Buckeye Council launched its first six-week program on to encourage all Scouts, leaders, and their families to continue their Scouting adventure and provide the necessary resources to do so. This was a completely free program to participate in, where a weekly communication was sent with at-home activities to complete. At the conclusion of the six-weeks all participants earned the Spring BreakOut Award Patch that was mailed to all participants.
