Camps and Reservations
Camping has been an integral part of Boy Scout life ever since Robert Baden-Powell established the first summer camp on Brownsea Island, off England’s southern coast, in 1907. Every summer, thousands of Scouts attend camps and reservations across the country, where they participate in activities ranging from leather work to white water rafting. Today’s camp experience is likely to include mountain biking and computer sessions – activities not even imagined when Baden- Powell gathered 20 Scouts and taught them practical skills such as tracking, signaling, pioneering and first aid – but the spirit of Boy Scout camp remains true to his vision.
