January 16, 2001 - Some Boy Scouts are trying to save a piece of scouting history in the Poconos.

Boy Scouts young and old got to work Sunday on an old cabin near Hawley.

"We're pretty much de-chinking now, which means taking the stuff out from between the logs," explained Boy Scout Giancarlo Iona.

This is not just any cabin. It is the Daniel Beard cabin, named after one of the original founders of the Boy Scouts.

Dan Beard Boy Scout cabin to be restored

Lackawaxen Twp. — Woodloch Pines Resort has donated a historic cabin on their property to the Boys Scouts of America. The log cabin was used by one of the Scouts’ founders in the first half of the 20th Century.

The Northeast Pennsylvania (NEPA) Council of the Boy Scouts of America has plans to move it to the Goose Pond Boy Scout Reservation about 12 or 15 miles away, in Paupack Township.

Financial Assistance Request

The United Way of Lackawanna & Wayne Counties, the Susquehanna County United Way and the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council have collaborated to help serve low income youth and their families from Lackawanna, Wayne and Susquehanna Counties. These Scouts are faced with a special financial challenge.

The Scoutmaster, Cubmaster or Venturing Crew Advisor of the packs, troops and crews based in these counties are in the best position to have knowledge of Scouts and families in the Unit who are most in need of assistance. By working through the Scoutmaster, Cubmaster or Crew Advisor, this will help identify any needs more accurately and readily. This practice is not meant however to exclude parents or other leaders from directly applying for financial assistance, as long as requirements are met.

These United Ways have targeted specific needs-based funds to be utilized in Lackawanna, Wayne, and Susquehanna Counties to serve youth and families in need. These funds may be requested to supplement a variety of Scouting related purposes which may include, but are not limited to: registration fees, uniforms, insignia, badges, handbooks, activities, special trips, educational programs, and other related Scouting expenses. The NEPA Council will subsidize 70% of these expenses, and the Scout’s family or Unit will need to cover 30% of these costs. Should your son need a Campership to attend an NEPA council operated summer camp, requests are to be made separately using a Campership Request Form. This form is available at the Scout Service and Training Center or can be found on the council website at www.nepabsa.org. Campership requests are due by May 1 and will typically cover up to 50% of the fees.

United Way funds are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Requests for needs-based assistance will be honored only when the Scout and his parent fill out either the form on the back of this sheet and/or the Campership Request Form (which can be requested separately). In both cases, documentation of public assistance must be attached. If the United Way funding is exhausted for that particular year, the Council will continue to honor needs-based requests as funds are made available.

The Northeastern Pennsylvania Council, Boy Scouts of America has begun the process of relocating and restoring an important piece of Scouting’s history.

This cabin, the last remaining part of the Dan Beard Outdoor School, a camp run by Daniel Carter Beard in Lackawaxen Township, Pike County, PA is being disassembled and moved 12 miles to Goose Pond Scout Reservation. This process is not a small undertaking, but by relocating and keeping this 1926 Kiva style log cabin in Upstate Pennsylvania we are not only preserving its history but are also honoring a beloved founder of the BSA, Dan Beard himself.

These pages will explain the history of the cabin and detail the restoration process. You will also be able to follow the project through our collection of pictures and images.

This project is being made possible with help from the many volunteers who are giving their time and labor freely. It cannot be completed, however, without the contributions and generosity of supporters like you. Monetary donations to pay the costs of the relocation and rebuilding are now being taken online, and we thank all of you for your support. Before you leave, please visit the Dan Beard Cabin Project DONATE page.

For more information, you can follow the project on our Facebook page, or contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Since its founding in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has had fully participating members with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities. James E. West, the first Chief Scout Executive, was a person with a disability. Although most of the BSA's efforts have been directed at keeping such boys in the mainstream of Scouting, it has also recognized the special needs of those with significant disabilities.
