Construction progress is now advancing rapdily each week!
The Oscar Lasko Program Activity and Resource Campus (PARC), the future home of the Chester County Council BSA, has been a long time in the making (10 years). As we navigate through these unprecedented times, it is truly exciting to be able to see signs of better things to come!
Since the beginning of May there has been some great progress at the site from both IMC Construction, our general contractor, and H.L Wiker, our site contractor. The building, parking area and driveways are all nearing completion and should be completed by the end of 2020 if all goes according to plan.
PARC will allow for dynamic utilization day and night, making after school, work and weekend use more accessible to a substantial number of current and potential Scouting members. Partnerships with local commercial, civic, and conservation organizations are being developed to ensure interactive and engaging experiences for every PARC visitor. Since 1919, Chester County Council has been delivering the mission of the Boy Scouts of America through partnerships with community organizations in Chester County, PA, and in the northwestern corner of Cecil County, MD.
Long-awaited and essential resources provided through a first-class facility
PARC will offer youth and adults in Scouting and our community a first-class facility right in the heart of Chester County
on Lancaster Avenue (Business Rt. 30) in Exton, Pennsylvania.
On the first floor will be administrative, retail and meeting space. The second floor will be the Dick and Carol Vermeil Leadership Development Center, providing meeting space for units in our Scouting programs.
PARC will also provide a protected area of green space for the local population and Chester County residents in an area and region that is quickly being transformed by new construction and development activity.
From the woods and wetlands to the streams and wide open fields of grass, young people will interact with nature while they learn to understand the impact it has on our everyday lives. Inside the walls of the building that will anchor the 28-acre campus, members of the Scouting family and the community at large will be able to find information, resources and facility space to support program, training and activity needs.
