Youth Protection Highlight:

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.

Big News for MVSR!

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.

Straker Cabin now ready for your unit!

We are pleased to announce that the new Straker Cabin is now available to rent for weekend camping. The heated cabin is located just off the main parking lot at MVSR. There are four sleeping rooms, each with two double bunk beds, for a total of 16 beds. Additionally, there is a large gathering space containing four picnic tables. A group larger than 16 could have several additional Scouts sleep in the gathering room. When renting the cabin, a unit will also get access to the flush toilet located at the Welcome Center just a few hundred feet from the cabin. There are additional rest room facilities in the nearby kybo at the Kiwanis shelter. Cooking is not allowed in the cabin – a fire ring will be located outside the building. Units are encouraged to bring cooking stoves for use outside the building if desired.

The cabin rental is just $75 per night, or $125 for a weekend rental.

Units wishing to rent the cabin should contact the Council Service Center at: 740-453-0571

Consider a great weekend at camp with a warm dry bed at night…. Hope to see you there!
