Boy Scouting in Ohio

In the 1990s, the BSA went through a restructuring in an attempt to reduce manpower, and in several states small historic Councils were merged into a larger supercouncil. The new Simon Kenton Council is an example of such a supercouncil.

There are sixteen Boy Scouts of America local councils in Ohio.
