We serve youth living and going to school in the neighborhood of Clifton and the surrounding area in Cincinnati, Ohio. We meet year round on Tuesday nights from 7:00 until 8:30 at Calvary Episcopal Church, 3766 Clifton Ave. We have at least one overnight activity a month and at least one week of Scout Camp in the summer.
