Seven Ranges Scout Reservation

Seven Ranges Scout Reservation is a Scout reservation in Kensington, Ohio known for its Pipestone Camp Honor Program. The Reservation is composed of Camp Algonkin, Camp Calumet, Camp Akela and Turkey Ridge. Camp Algonkin features 24 campsites, the I. W. Delp Ecology Center, a waterfront area on Lake Don Brown with swimming and boating (Canoeing, Kayaking, Row-boating), a handicraft center, a field sports area (Includes Tomahawk throwing, archery, rifle shooting, and shotgun shooting), and an outdoor skills area. Other special locations in Camp Algonkin are Thunderbird Hill (The highest point in Carroll County), Bridge Builder's Amphitheater which features the Seven Ranges Radio Station, an outdoor, lakeside chapel, a large Order of the Arrow Ceremonies Ring, and the beautiful Frank G. Hoover Dining Hall.

Camp Akela is Seven Ranges Cub Scout Area. This features a small amphitheater, a fishing pond, and the COPE course for the entire camp.

Camp Calumet is an outpost camp across Lake Don Brown.

The Pipestone Camp Honor Program was founded in Camp Tuscazoar, Zoar, Ohio in the summer of 1926 by George M. Deaver, Scout Executive of the Council; C. L. Riley, a teacher at Canton McKinley High School, who was serving as Camp Director at the time; I. W. Delp, Principal of Lehman High School in Canton; and Charles E. Mills, a Scouter who was skilled in theatrical production. The program sought to reward Scouts who excelled in advancement and Scouting spirit while at the camp. The Native Americans of the Tuscarawas valley inspired the ceremonies of the program. The success of the program led its founders to set it as a five year series, which was the average number of summer camps attended by a Scout in the late 1920s. Scouts are required to complete the program for five years to earn the highest level Pipestone token.

In order to earn pipestone, a scout must complete the Swimming Requirement, a Good Turn Service Project for the Camp, have Camp Spirit, complete at least one merit badge or advance in rank at camp, complete the ecology requirement (1st-3rd year only), Earn Leadership Points (4th and 5th year only), Complete a Leadership Project (4th and 5th only), and turn in a bundle of a cubic foot of barkless, straight, hardwood (1st-4th year only). The wood is burned in fires during the pipestone ceremonies.
