The Coronado Area Council is the local council of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) that serves Scouts in north central and northwest Kansas, across 32 counties, with headquarters in Salina.


The council headquarters is located in Salina, Kansas and the council is organized into five districts.

The Dane G. Scout Reservation (known by the early counselors as "Kirwin", was originally a wilderness camp. It had few facilities, no permanent housing for staff, and everybody did their own cooking. I was on the staff in 1965, 1966, and 1967. The focus of the camp has changed. It is now an opportunity for campers to learn a wider range of Scouting skills.

The program was inspired by the Pony Express Council and Heart of America Council's Tribe of Mic-O-Say. Membership is indicated by the wearing of replica eagle claws, with the number of claws and the paint on the tips of the claws indicating rank within the tribe.
