Since the first National Scout Jamboree was held in the summer of 1937 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the jamboree has become Scouting’s flagship event. In the summer of 2013, the Summit Bechtel Family Reserve welcomed Scouts to a whole new jamboree experience with world-class facilities and a focus on outdoor action sports. In 2017, SBR and the jamboree will be even better.
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!
Every Unit should conduct an annual planning conference resulting in a Unit calendar and Budget. Here are some helpful tools you can use to develop and communicate your plan and budget:
Do you know who will be taking the new Tiger Cub Den as a leader? Do you know who will be Mentoring the new Second Year Webelo Den? These questions can be answered or start the process of being answered by filling out the Fall Leadership Inventory Form and submitting it to you Commissioner or Unit Serving Executive.

These are the patches that were made for Ray Nicholson’s scholarship. $10 each. Ray earned his Eagle Scout right here in the Muskingum Valley Council. The Scholarship is a great way to honor Ray’s life and accomplishments while supporting current and future Scouts. All proceeds go directly to the scholarship account. They are available at the Council office and at Fink’s where Ray worked.
