As with many Boy Scout Councils, Daniel Boone Council experienced many changes over its long history. It was consistently recognized, however, as a very significant youthservice agency and considered to be an important member of the community it served. Named after the great woodsman and explorer who was born near Reading in 1734, the Daniel Boone Council produced many fine Boy Scouts, some of whom are still involved with Scouting in the Berks County area.
