Swan Creek District

 

Overview

Swan Creek District is made up of over 50 great Scouting units. These include Cub Scout Packs (grades 1-4 and the Fall of 5th grade), Boy Scout Troops (Spring of 5th grade up to the age of 18), Venturing Crews (for young men and women age 13 and above who want more adventure and activity), Ships (for those interested in the nautical side of Scouting), and Exploring Posts (with a focus on career preparation in different fields). 

 

Why Should You Join Scouting in Our Area?

The mission of the Boys Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

Scout Oath: On my honor, I will do my best. To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Scout Law: A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. We pride ourselves on the youth that participate in our community and feel that they help make Northwest Ohio a better place.
