Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our Council has made the health and safety of our Scouts, families, leaders, and staff its number one priority. Due to Hamilton County turning purple on Ohio’s COVID-19 heat map, this weekend’s Klondike Derby at Camp Friedlander has been rescheduled to March 5-7, 2021. For event details, click here.

Scouting Forward Together is an all-in effort to support our units, the heart of our organization. We are rallying together to help get everyone through this challenging time, and working together at all levels to build the future of Scouting for youth in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.


  • Bring Scouting resources directly to units through our key Dan Beard Council volunteers.
  • Rally volunteers and leaders to share how we can collectively move local Scouting forward by sharing the impact, engaging more people, expanding our resources, and ensuring the highest quality programs are delivered for youth
  • Share updates on Scouting going forward, assist units with key next steps, understand their needs, and find solutions to ensure the mission of Scouting continues to impact local youth.
