Good question (as Carroll County is outside the current EAB quarantine area).Only
those Scouts wanting to participate in the Pipestone (camp honors) program bring a bundle of wood to camp.
The firewood must be bark-less (dead/dry), larger than your pinkie, and smaller than your thumb.
Total length between 12 and 16 inches.
Pipestone participants bring one cubic foot of bound wood (sticks).
A Scout can also collect his wood while in camp.
The ODNR (Ohio Department of Natural Resources) has given a waiver to the Buckeye Council for the transport of this size wood. (Since the size of the wood being transported is so small there's no fear of EAB transport.)
Scouts coming to Seven Ranges from outside of Ohio do not need to bring wood.
Taking fire wood across state lines would violate the Federal EAB quarantine.
