The Scouting movement has been strong in the Greater Cincinnati area since Daniel Carter Beard's days with his "Sons of Daniel Boone" in Covington, Kentucky over 100 years ago. Today, with a membership of over 33,000 Scouts and their families impacted by great Scouting programs, and a community that embraces the important work of character development that Scouting delivers, the Dan Beard Council Scout Achievement Center (SAC) serves as the home and headquarters for Scouting in our area.

This impressive 27,000 square foot structure celebrates the traditions of Scouting, provides a state-of-the-art meeting place for thousands of volunteers, and houses the council service center. Built with the next 100 years of Scouting in mind, the Scout Achievement Center project has become a landmark in the Scouting world and the Cincinnati community, incorporating green features, a beautiful natural building design, and future-ready technology.
