Scouting in the Black Swamp Area Council began in 1915-1923 when the Scouting program was introduced to the young people of West Central and Northwestern Ohio. Scouting became synonymous with camping, hiking, and outdoor fun and adventure using the outdoor educational programs of Scouting to teach personal responsibility, citizenship, character development, achievement of specific goals, service to others and learning about the outdoors–all based upon the values found in the Scout Oath and Law.
The Black Swamp Area Council was formed in 1992 with the merger of the Put-Han-Sen and Shawnee Councils. The Black Swamp Area Council now has two camps, one in Hancock County and one in Defiance County. Today thousands of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Explorers and Scout leaders use both camps annually, living out the Scout Oath and Scout Law one scout at a time.
