Council Earns ‘GOLD’ – again!

Every organization strives to improve. Plans are made, goals are set, performance is tracked.  Whether it’s a business, a club, or a family, we all set goals and track performance.  In the BSA, those performance standards are the 18 criteria tracked on the Journey to Excellence.

Today We are pleased to announce that the Muskingum Valley Council has achieved ‘Gold’ level performance for 2017.  If you are reading this, you can take pride in your role in this achievement!  Parents, cubmasters, scoutmasters, committee members, commissioners, venture leaders, activity chairmen, trainers, camp staff, donors, fundraisers, and so many more… you all played a part in this success story.


Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are advancing and camping at the highest percentages. Our Scouts averaged over 6 hours of service each.

With your help, the Muskingum Valley Council is setting the standard for quality, cost-effective, positive youth development.   As we look forward, we can all feel confident that we are prepared to provide more exceptional Scouting programs in 2018.

Exciting times for the Future of Scouting!

AUGUST 30 Update:  We have had a slight delay as we negotiate the moving of a gas line that passes under the new storage building.  We expect to have the gas line removed by mid sept and then construction will proceed.

On Tuesday, August 15th, the community gathered to help Scouts break ground on the expansion and renovation of the Scouting Resource Center in Zanesville.  Cub Scout Carson Shockley, Eagle Scout Alex Pinson, and Venture Scout Julia Roberts each turned the first dirt, symbolizing the start of the construction.  These three Scouts represent the thousands of young people who will benefit from Scouting over the next fifty years, thanks to this project.

The expansion and renovation is the last project of a five year capital campaign.  Already, generous donors to the campaign have funded the construction of a S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) center, doubling the size of the dining hall, and construction of the Silver Beaver Village consisting of 5 cabins and a shower house. This final project will cost $1.2 million.  A good portion of this has already been raised and we hope to raise the final $600,000  in the next 6 months.
