The Dan Beard Council, BSA and the Cincinnati Microsoft Store have partnered together to provide local Scouts with the opportunity to earn advancements while having fun for FREE.  As of the start of the year, Dan Beard Council launched a new initiative with the brand new Microsoft Store in Kenwood to offer free classes teaching Cub Scout Belt Loops (Computer, Photography, and Video Games) and Boy Scout Merit Badges (Computer, Photography, or Cinematography). Scouts will complete the requirements to earn their advancements in a unique way while exploring the latest in new technology!

Hike to the site where Scouting REALLY began...

A FREE family friendly event! Enjoy a 5 mile hike featuring a stop at Daniel Carter Beard's childhood home in Covington, Kentucky, the place where a young Dan Beard played in the woods developing a love of the outdoors that would one day become the foundation for the Boy Scouts of America.  Our hike will take you through 3 cities in 2 states and across 3 historic bridges over 2 major rivers!  Enjoy the scenic beauty of the Ohio River from the Roebling Bridge, Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove as you learn about the deep, rich history of our community.

Download the Trailguide & Map below.  Click "READ MORE" for details about the hike.

*NEW* - Souvenir bandana maps are available for purchase at the Scout Achievement Center for $5 each.  Proceeds will go to support the Dan Beard Hike.
