Patriot Days Encampment Slide Show  

at the Daniel Boone Homestead
Birdsboro, PA

Since 1967 thousands of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Camp Fire youth, and other youth groups have experienced Patriot Days.  The event is held for for one weekend in June at the Daniel Boone Homestead in Birdsboro, Pennsylvania.  Participants meet new friends and share in a unique camping experience.

Units 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.

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.
