The Simon Kenton Council is one of the largest councils in the nation serving 17 counties in central and southern Ohio, and Greenup County in northern Kentucky. The council is staffed by more than 40 professional and administrative Scouters with more than 7,500 adult volunteers delivering the scouting program to more than 23,000 youth.
We are joined by over 550 charter partner organizations sponsoring the 700 Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venturing Crews and Exploring Posts in our council. Through these partnerships, the council’s goal is to be the premier leader in youth development for central and southern Ohio as well as Greenup County, Kentucky.
In addition, we maintain and operate four year-round camps that include 1,152 acres of woods, forests, ponds, trails and camping sites. Youth served include boys and girls ages 6-20 living in urban, rural and suburban areas.
