Overview


Created in England at the dawn of the twentieth century by Boer War hero Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the Boy Scout movement reached America in 1910. Scouting spread like wildfire to Atlantic Highlands, Freehold, Long Branch, Red Bank, and nearly every other town in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Blending equal parts outdoor adventure, American patriotism, and hometown values, Monmouth Council has been instructing Scouts in the tradition of civic duty since 1917.

Tens of thousands of Monmouth County Scouts have taken pride in the art of tying a square knot, the pageantry of the court of honor, and projects that benefit the local community. Monmouth Council Boy Scouts contains a distinctive collection of images featuring an inside view of the Order of the Arrow and the other Boy Scout programs, the camps at Forestburg, Burton-at-Allaire, and Quail Hill, hiking trips to Philmont, National Jamboree tours, and many other Boy Scout events.
