Busy Beavers

Mission Statement - 2017

The Busy Beavers is an ad hoc group of registered Scouters who are interested in assisting the Buckeye Council camping program by maintaining, improving, and building facilities at the Buckeye Council camps (currently: Seven Ranges Scout Reservation, Camp McKinley and Camp Rodman) . The Busy Beavers encourages and facilitates opportunities for other Scouts and Scouters to do the same, as the camp Good Turn Program has accomplished.  A designated member of the Busy Beavers will work closely with a designated member of the Buckeye Council staff to establish that all maintenance, improvement, and building projects fit into short and long range plans for the Buckeye Council camps. A designated member of the Busy Beavers will provide information to the Buckeye Council Properties Committee regarding the group’s activities within the Buckeye Council camps. The Busy Beavers request no other recognition beyond being permitted to assist the Buckeye Council as stated above.

  1. Doing his duty to God and his country.
  2. Helping other people at all times.
