Scouting History in the Heart of America Council

It's a camping destination for thousands of council Scouts each summer...but the Theodore Naish Scout Reservation looked a lot different when it first opened nearly 90 years ago.  In this month's edition of Scouting History , our Council Historian takes us back to 1928 and the first official summer camp at Camp Naish.
