About Us

The Muskingum Valley Council (MVC) is a Chapter of the Boy Scouts of America. The MVC BSA was founded in 1953 and is located in east central and southeastern Ohio. We have units in Coshocton, Guernsey, Knox, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, Perry and Tuscarawas Counties.

Council Territory

It is the mission of the Muskingum Valley Council Boy Scouts of America, in cooperation with local community organizations, to provide a high quality Scouting program which will foster in young people a commitment to serve God and country, ethical moral character, personal fitness, good citizenship, and  the development of mental maturity and leadership ability.

We prepare our community’s youth for life.

In addition, we operate the Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation in Coshocton, Ohio. This beautiful campground is host to our annual Boy Scout Summer Camp, Weblos Resident Camp, Cub Scout Adventure Weekend, and year-round camping.
