The Miami Valley Council

First established in 1918 and has a proud heritage of camping and outdoor activities. Its first camp, Cricket Holler Scout Camp opened its door in 1922 to a handful of boys and Woodland Trails Scout Reservation opened in 1959. The Miami Valley 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 6,500 youth, 2800 volunteers, two camps, The Harry F. Schiewetz Leadership Training Center and Council Service Center located in Dayton, Ohio.

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.
