Stories of

Hawk Mountain Council

Hawk Mountain Council was formed in January 1970, when Appalachian Trail Council consolidated with Daniel Boone Council. Scouting was tremendously popular with boys in Berks and Schuylkill counties during this time, evidenced by the fact that nearly one-third of all boys of Scouting age were members of Hawk Mountain Council at the time of the merger. The newly formed Council boasted 12,202 Scouts. The two camps of the former Appalachian Trail and Daniel Boone councils continued to operate independently until construction of a combined camp was completed in 1978.
