For more than 110 years, Scouting has shaped young people and prepared them for their futures by instilling the values of the Scout Oath and Law. That legacy continues today and remains just as important and relevant as it was in 1910. The Buckeye Council provides the chance to honor this legacy and its continued impact through our Celebrate Scouting initiative. We are excited to share with you stories of Scouting’s impact and invite you to celebrate, connect, and contribute. Here you can view and explore more about the 2024 Eagle Celebration, our 2024 special events, learn about growth in the Scouting movement, STEM programs, and several unique stories about Scouting's impact on the lives of local youth.
Building on 8% membership growth in 2022, we have just welcomed more than 1,200 new families into our programs in the last 8 weeks. Hundreds of these new scouts attended one of our fall Family Adventure Camps where more than 1,700 participants experienced their first exciting outdoor adventure. They, along with more than 3,000 individuals who attended Seven Ranges this summer, are benefiting from the unique youth development opportunities found only in scouting. Achievements like these are only made possible through dedicated donors like you. With your support, we can continue to make memories for thousands of Scouts.
In Brenna's hometown of Millersburg there was no outdoor amphitheater where people could gather to enjoy concerts, performing arts, or educational seminars. So she built one. More accurately, she selected this enormous endeavor as her Eagle Scout Project and gave leadership to the funding and construction of a stone amphitheater. The new facility is located in Deer Run Park where it is available to benefit and impact her entire community.
