The Dane G. Scout Reservation (known by the early counselors as "Kirwin", was originally a wilderness camp. It had few facilities, no permanent housing for staff, and everybody did their own cooking. I was on the staff in 1965, 1966, and 1967. The focus of the camp has changed. It is now an opportunity for campers to learn a wider range of Scouting skills.
