Seneca District serves NE Jefferson county in Kentucky including the following areas: Anchorage, Brownsboro Road, Butchertown, Crescent Hill, Clifton, Westport Road, Lyndon, Middletown, Prospect and St. Matthews.


Scouts have always led the way, been prepared, helped other people, striven to be good citizens, and worked to be brave. Times like this are exactly why we need Scouting.

While Scouting has continued during this unique time, fundraising has been extremely challenging.  Special events have been cancelled, collections on the annual campaign are down, and in the blink of an eye, revenue from summer camp and other in-person activities have disappeared.

We know there are better days ahead, but we also know that without identifying meaningful sources of funding to bridge the gap, our services and programs will not be able to be delivered at the same level in the future. So, what is at risk? The future leadership of our community. With less Scouting, there will be fewer leaders and we are committed to not let that happen. Our community needs Scouting more than ever!

Our council has implemented several expense cutting strategies to offset the loss of revenue as well as developed new opportunities to raise additional funds including this Secure the Adventure Campaign. The funds raised will go directly to support Scouting in the 64 counties we serve during this time of need.

We have an ambitious goal to raise $200,000 through this campaign by December 31. If you have already donated to Scouting this year, thank you!  If you are interested in giving more, thank you again!  Your support will help the Lincoln Heritage Council continue to serve thousands of families and help to build children into values-based leaders that our community so desperately needs.

We’re now accepting reservations for 2021!
Camp is OPEN and we CANT WAIT!  Reserve your spot now!

To make your 2021 Summer Camp Reservations, fill out this REGISTRATION FORM.

Reservations require a $100 deposit. Deposit is deducted from the total camp fees and are not refundable or transferrable to the following year. This fee holds your troop’s youth reservations at Summer Camp but does not 100% guarantee your first choice of camp sites. The Summer Camp Director determines final camp site spots for each troop, based on number of youth/adults registered within Tentaroo, one week prior to camp. Camp sites are based on the troop’s preferences, date reservations received at the office, reservations used the prior year, and miscellaneous camp needs.

Open District Positions

Attention all Seneca Scouters!  What an exciting time to be a Scout in the Lincoln Heritage Council!  With so many great events planned in the district, it’s no question that Scouting is alive and thriving in the city of Louisville!  From Cub-o-Rees, to camp cards and from Pinewood Derby’s to Day camp there is something for everyone! All of our events are managed and staffed by volunteers serving behind the scenes to ensure that our scouts have the best program possible.  If you or someone you know is looking to get involved on the district level and would like to help volunteer their time and talent please contact Donnie Helstern,, Bob Hausladen,, or David Todd, to discuss our open positions and where we could use some help!  This person can be currently registered with the BSA or an influential member of your community that would like to get involved!
