Buckeye Council Hoover Service Center Status

Canton Office Updates & Scout Shop Closure

On December 27, the Buckeye Council Service Center and Scout Shop in Canton had a pipe burst that caused major flooding and damage to the building. Since then, restoration and construction companies have been working to quickly return the building to normal.

We predict full operation of the office and Scout Shop to resume in February. In the meantime, accommodations have been made to best serve our scouting community. Please see below for important information regarding office hours, the Canton Scout Shop, Pinewood Derby Clinics, and more.



The Buckeye Council Service Center in Canton has resumed normal hours (8:30am - 5:00pm). Leaders and parents will be able to turn items such as: Eagle packets, recharter payments, applications, and event-related forms. However, other services will be limited.

When entering the building, use the exterior door to the left of the main door, located before the Scout Shop display. This door leads into a conference room where a temporary office has been set up.

There will be limited staff in the building during this time. District professional staff will be available remotely via their email and cell phones.



The Canton Scout Shop will be closed until further notice and we anticipate the Scout Shop reopening on February 1. Please note between now and then, there will be a full demolition and reconstruction of the Scout Shop so the date is subject to change. In the meantime:
