Firelands Scout Reservation
Firelands Scout Reservation (FSR) is located 5 miles west of Oberlin, in Wakeman, on 455 acres, with 70% wooded. FSR is comprised of two sub camps honoring the legacy of former camps. Camp Avery Hand serves as our primary Cub Scout Summer operations, as well as a majority of our winter operations. Camp Wyandot is home to our Boy Scout Summer Camp operations, as well to home of Camp Alaska. Camp Wyandot has a 23-acre lake with an island connected by a land bridge. Camp Avery Hand is home to our brand new 2-acre Waldock Pond. The camp has operated as a Scout camp since 1938. Cabin and tent camping are available. For more information, please contact the Council Service Center in Ashland by calling 419-522-8300.
Camping and the outdoors has always been an integral part of the Scouting program. In 1907, Lord Baden-Powell's first Scouting activity was a campout on Brownsea Island in England. Since 1910, millions of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers have taken to the hills, woods, and rivers of America and the great outdoor classroom where Scouting comes alive.

THANK YOU 'OVER THE HILL GANG'
The Heart of Ohio Council would like to thank the "Over the Hill Gang" of Firelands Scout Reservation for all of their hard-work at camp. These fine gentlemen come out to camp every Thursday to help support our Ranger Danny Thomas and his workload. On Thursday, December 19, 2013, the guys were treated to a special Christmas luncheon and a special gift for each of the memebrs form the council. THANK YOU guys for your dedication and hard work in making camp look good. The OTHG spends countless hours making signs, cutting grass, prepping summer camp programs and crafts, and numerous other projects around camp.
If you are interested in joining the OTHG, please contact Danny Thomas out at camp and he will be glad to have your assistance. You do not have to be 'over the hill' to join the group. Volunteers of any age can help out at camp.
