The Miami Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America, first established in 1918, has a proud heritage of camping and outdoor activities for young men and women in the Miami Valley.
The Council has grown to such an extent over the years that it now encompasses the five-county region of Montgomery, Darke, Preble, Miami and Shelby counties and serves over 10,000 young men and women in the programs of Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturing, and Exploring.
Supported by 2,800 volunteers, two premier camping facilities, The Harry F. Schiewetz Leadership Training Center and Council Resource Center located in Dayton, Scouting remains a vital and relevant organization for families and the community.

It is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and in other ways prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime in achieving their full potential. The values we strive to instill are based on those found in the Scout Oath and Law.
On my Honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.
