Parents and Leaders, the 2015 University of Scouting is rapidly approaching! You do not want to miss out on this great opportunity for learning and fellowship! If you need ideas, more in depth training, or would like to learn new skills from qualified and knowledgeable leaders this is the place. You can click HERE for the registration form to insure your seat in the classes of your choice!
The safety of Scouts in the program must be our highest priority! With the approach of our fall camping season, here is an important reminder:
Separate accommodations: When camping, no youth is permitted to sleep in the tent of an adult other than his own parent or guardian. (That means ‘Legal’ guardian.)
If a Cub Scout is attending a camp-out with anyone other than his parent or legal guardian, he should share a tent with another Cub Scout while the adults sleep in their own tents.
For more information on the Youth Protection Policies of the BSA, take the youth protection training course accessible by clicking the link in the menu at the top of this page.
Your Scouts will enjoy this program and your Troop will benefit from the leadership skills they learn. Show this video to your eligible Scouts now so they have time to plan to attend.
Time to mark your calendars for the 2014 edition of the College of Commissioner Science. Come on out and start your degree work or continue your studies. We have an excellent selection of courses offered. Lunch will be provided and it will be an excellent time to network with your fellow commissioners.

Hope to see you all there:
Tuesday, September 30, at 11:00 am will mark the beginning of a new era at the Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation. Thanks to the incredible generosity of many foundations, companies and individuals, we will be breaking ground on a $500,000 expansion of the Dining Hall. The expansion will nearly double the size of the seating area finally allowing us to have all campers comfortably under one roof for meals and programs.
The project is expected to take 6-7 months and will be complete in time for Summer Camp. In addition to simply expanding the seating area, the entire building will get new siding and a new metal roof.
Everyone is invited to join us at the dining hall Tues., Sept. 30 at 11am for the groundbreaking ceremony.
