The Simon Kenton Council is one of the largest councils in the nation serving 17 counties in central and southern Ohio, and Greenup county in northern Kentucky. The Council is staffed by 22 professional Scouters with over 7,000 adult volunteers delivering the scouting program to more than 23,000 youth. We are joined by over 550 charter partner organizations sponsoring the 1,015 Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Venturing, and Exploring units in our Council. The Council’s goal is to be the premier leader in youth development. This is reflected in the Vision Statement of the Council:
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, to 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 and Outdoor Code.
Building on an already strong tradition of youth and community service, the Simon Kenton Council will develop and provide the highest quality Scouting program in its geographic area to accomplish the mission of the Boy Scouts of America, and in doing so be recognized and accepted as the premiere leader in youth development.
