Come and Celebrate Yawgoog This Month!

UntitledJoin us as we celebrate this outstanding milestone, the 100th Anniversary of Camp Yawgoog. From the first 250 Scouts who camped at the old Palmer homestead in 1916, to the thousands of Scouts who travel from across the country each year, Yawgoog has inspired hundreds of thousands of young men in it’s 100 years. Yawgoog truly is A Scout Adventureland, Forever.
