West Side Springfield Initiative - BSA
Tecumseh Council
The West Side of Springfield Initiative will be focused on using outside-the-box methods to reach underprivileged youth and their families from selected neighborhoods and communities in both Clark and Greene County, Ohio. Rather than funneling our efforts through the schools, we will work closely with organizations and churches whose focus is on those local areas, to conduct bi-monthly events for youth and their families, at no cost to them. The program will culminate in a full, outdoor, camp experience at Tecumseh Council’s Camp Birch. These bi-monthly events - while intended to be both fun and exciting - will educate those attending on the benefits of the Scouting Program, and how the Scout Oath and Scout Law are not just words, but a way of life that builds strong character and confidence, inspires leadership, and teaches young people how to strive for heightened, personal goals, through hard work and strong ethics.
