Dan Beard, one of the founding fathers of Scouting, has left a remnant of his past in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Dan Beard Outdoor School for Boys was located on the premises of what is now the Woodloch Pines Resort. It has been donated by the Kiesendahl Family to the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council, Boy Scouts of America to be erected at Goose Pond Scout Reservation. The school’s Headquarters cabin has been dismantled and is now in storage in Scranton.
We need help to raise enough dollars to re-assemble “Uncle Dan’s” cabin and have it become part of Boy Scout living history at Goose Pond. There is a strict deadline for re-assembly of the cabin, to ensure the stability of the original American Chestnut logs. If any of the logs deteriorate, there are no available replacement logs available in the United States. Today, the locally harvested logs are considered rare and extremely valuable.
Immortalize your son, his troop, your favorite Scout leader, Eagle Scout, service project, yourself, your family, or a family member. You can also place a paver “In Memory Of” someone special by purchasing one of the two differently sized pavers that will provide a walkway at the entrance to Dan Beard’s Cabin.
