CAMP FRIEDLANDER HOMECOMING & RE-DEDICATION

On August 24, 2019, one hundred years after the original dedication of Camp Friedlander, over 350 people gathered to celebrate a century of Scouting and camping.  Scouts, Scouters, families and the community at large came together for a weekend of camping, Scouting activities, and fun.  The weekend culminated with a re-dedication ceremony that celebrated the 100 years of history at Camp Friedlander, and set the stage for the future.  Ground was ceremoniously broken for a Centennial Plaza, that will stand as a permanent marker that celebrates the past, present, and future of camping in the Dan Beard Council.
