Welcome to the new blog!
Hi! I’m Simon, Scout extraordinaire here at the Simon Kenton Council. Welcome to the council’s new blog! I hope to be able to bring some excitement to the Scouting community here in central and southern Ohio, as well as give insight on various aspects of the Scouting program.
Our council is gearing up for an exciting summer! I know I personally am going to enjoy one of the several Scout Nights offered by the council (Visit our calendar at www.skcbsa.org, to see more information about Scout Nights with the Columbus Clippers, Ohio Machine and Columbus Crew).
Day camp and resident camp is also approaching-Scouts of all ages can make lasting memories by attending camp. I made friends for a lifetime and am still laughing about the one time Joey caught that frog that had bounced on our leader’s head …. hee-hee….
I’m super excited about the Ohio State Fair this year. I plan on eating several gyros, ears of corn and funnel cakes, but most of all, I can’t wait to see the Boy Scout booth. I’ve heard there will be robots, pinewood derby cars and contests … all things that make being a Boy Scout fun! Find out more at http://www.skcbsa.org/ohiostatefair.php.
So, grab your gear, your uniform, and most of all, your excitement and come out with me to all of the exciting summer Scouting events! I know I’m going to make this Scouting summer the best one yet!
