Welcome to the Firecrafter Historical Center

Crossroads of America Council

Firecrafter originally started in the Central Indiana Council and spread from there. Today the area formerly covered by Central Indiana Council is a part of the Crossroads of Amerca Council.

The Crossroads of America Council of the Boy Scouts of America serves youth in 19 counties in Central and East-Central Indiana. It was formed in 1972, from the merger of the Central Indiana Council (headquartered in Indianapolis), the Delaware County Council (Muncie), the Kikthawenund Council (Anderson), and the Whitewater Valley Council (Hagerstown). It is headquartered in Indianapolis, with three other offices in the council. All four offices have Scout Shops. The council operates six scout camps: Camp Bradford, Camp Belzer (formerly known as Camp Chank-Tun-Un-Gi), the Ransburg Reservation, Camp Kikthawenund, Camp Redwing, and Camp Bear Creek. The Council President is Steven A. Holt (Minisino and past Council Committee Chief), and the Scout Executive is Scott B. Claubaugh XXX.
