Founding of the Buckeye Council

Scouting has a great heritage in the Buckeye Council, as in other parts of this Nation and World. The Council was formed in Massillon in 1911, just one year after Scouting’s founding as a national movement for boys. Several years later, the Canton Council was formed with the help of the Canton Lions Club and the YMCA. Over the years, each Council grew and expanded its territory. Eventually, the Canton Council changed its name to McKinley, in honor of our 25th United States President. In 1959, the two Councils joined forces, taking the name of Buckeye Council, and the address of the McKinley Council. Then, in 1992, the Columbiana Council (Columbiana County and a small portion of West Virginia) voted to join the Buckeye Council.Today there are four districts in the Buckeye Council: Hetuck (Stark County), Killbuck (Wayne/Holmes County), Netawotwes (Tuscarawas/Carroll Counties) and Sandy Beaver (Columbiana County). The Council served more than 10,000 youth in 2010 in more than 300 Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venturer Crews and Explorer Posts.



Buckeye Council Summer Camp History

In 1987 the Buckeye Council opened summer camp operations at Seven Ranges Scout Reservation In Kensington, Ohio.  Prior to that time, the council enjoyed a long history of summer camp for Scouts at Camp Tuscazoar near Dover and also at Camp Buckeye near Beach City.  When Seven Ranges opened, it was comprised of less than 20 campsites, a dining hall accommodating 450, and minimal program facilities, but the tradition of the Boy Scout summer camp program in the Buckeye Council continued.  Click Here to read more!
