Find updates from Ranger Steve at Seven Ranges! Learn how you can continue to help and more!

 

  Greetings everyone,

 

  The crisp scent of fall is in the air and winter is right around the corner. We had a Great recruiting drive this fall and had four great Family Adventure Camps.  I am pleased to see our short term camping picking up this fall.  

  Be on the look out for updates on Camp Policies and Processes.  I have been creating and reviewing Rules for the Buckeye Council Properties and will be publishing them soon.  We also would like to apologize for 2023 weekend rentals not being available.  We are reviewing our pricing and processes,  we will have it open as soon as we can.  

       I know some of you all have communicated to myself already about Good Turn Weekend projects.  We will continue to communicate and I will let you all know as soon as registration is open. I hope you all enjoy this Fall and the Holidays. 

Hope to see you Around the Campfire, 

   Ranger Steve
