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.
A 2017 survey of parents in the Muskingum Valley Council shows that they credit Scouting with preparing their Scouts for School, and for life!
