53rd Patriot Days Encampment

Patriot Days Encampment Slide Show  

at the Daniel Boone Homestead
Birdsboro, PA

Join us for the Weekend or Just for the Day!

Since 1967 thousands of youth have gathered annually for one weekend in June at the Daniel Boone Homestead in Birdsboro, Pennsylvania, to meet new friends and share in a unique camping experience. Participants include Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Camp Fire, Heritage Girls, family campers, and other youth organizations.

The Patriot Days Encampment Committee operates the Encampment with the cooperation of the Daniel Boone Homestead. The Committee is composed of volunteers with backgrounds in different areas of Scouting and is not affiliated with any other organization.

Each year campers enjoy a wide range of interesting and enjoyable events, activities, and attractions through the entire weekend. Our program includes demonstrations, skill games, a camp fire, a dance, competitions, local craftspeople, and tours of the Daniel Boone Homestead. Other things are in the planning stages as we constantly update the program.

Weekend campers check in Friday evening, with the program all day Saturday. The weekend winds up on Sunday with the annual closing ceremony before we break camp. Day campers can check in any time on Saturday and participate in our program which runs from 9am to 11pm.

Experienced adults who cannot come with a unit are welcome to come for the day or the weekend and help with Encampment staff. Pass along to us any ideas for improvements, new acts, or groups who could present a station.
