On behalf of the Executive Board, Scouts and Scouters and our Bucktail Council staff, we want to extend a warm welcome to you, our newest family in the Scouting program.

We are celebrating more than 109 years of Scouting in the United States! What an adventure it has been and the next century looks to be even more exciting! Here in the Bucktail Council, that adventure of Scouting is being realized every week at the Den, Troop and Crew meetings, outings, treks and camp programs.

You have joined an exciting, dynamic and growing program which has the collective support of many local chartered organizations, community leaders and families like yours.

The Bucktail Council provides a camp property to you and your Scouting family which is second to none. Situated in the center of the 5 counties we serve (Cameron, western portion of Centre, Clearfield, Elk and Jefferson), we have the ability to provide memorable camping experiences and program throughout our service area.

Camp Mountain Run which is located in Penfield, PA and consists of 380 acres of beautiful forested land and wilderness for a wide variety of activities throughout the year. It is also the home for our Cub Scout and Boy Scout Summer Resident Camp.

The Bucktail Council is grateful for the time, talents, and financial resources we receive from existing families. Those who have come before you have laid the foundation for YOU – today – so that your children can enjoy Scouting.

We trust that you will do your part, in whatever way you can, for the kids of tomorrow. Welcome to Scouting! Enjoy the adventure.

Yours in Scouting,

Scott M. Barber, Council President

James B. Davis, Council Commissioner

Gregg T. Bennett, Scout Executive
