Our Mission

The mission of the Boy 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 Law.


Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals.  It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them.  Perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem.  As a result, when youth are faced with difficult decisions, they are able to resist peer pressure and make the right choices.

As we continue to provide quality programs and services to youth and their families, we ask you to consider a placing a brick at the Black Swamp Area Council Camp of your choosing.  Philanthropic investments from members of our community are critical in our ability to successfully address growth and program development at Camp Lakota and Camp Berry.



Become a permanent part of Scouting in Northwest and West Central Ohio and help put the Black Swamp Area Council Over the Top on the funding of our two great camp projects. Help support Cooper Lodge with Hubbard Dining Hall at Camp Lakota or Yammine Lodge at Camp Berry by leaving a legacy of a brick to be placed at either of these two needed structures for the Black Swamp Area Council Camps.

There are three options for bricks:

4x8 bricks with letters for $125

8x8 brick with pre-selected logo options for $350

8x8 4 brick array with personalized logo option for $1,500 (to order the array please contact Marc Kogan at (567) 208-5012 online order not available for this option).  Logos for this option will need to a jpg. Example of a 8x8 4 brick array:
