2014 Theme:

Twenty Campfires

"Make new friends, but keep the old....."
That is the starting line from a Girl Scout song that countless young women have sang for many years.  For twenty years that has been occurring at the annual Scout Celebration.  "Make new friends,” What better place than the Barren River Lake Scout Celebration is there to meet and make new friends?  "But keep the old," Many scouts, and scouters alike, come back to Scout Celebration each year to catch up with old friends they have not see in a year.  Twenty years ago, when Scout Celebration was started, that would have been an underlying theme for the fellowship that can only come from people who are bound within the vision of Baden Powell and Juliet Low, all those years ago.  We invite you to come to the 2014 Barren River Lake Scout Celebration to help us celebrate 20 years of this unique event.  Make some new friends and catch up with the old.

 

Message from the founder:

The Barren River Lake Scout Celebration began with a simple idea.  To show appreciation to the many Scouts who gave countless hours of service to benefit our community.  It suddenly became apparent after that first weekend this event was much more important than it was originally conceived.  The Barren River Lake Scout Celebration is a phenomenon that demonstrates the Scouting movement to the world; that allows all scouts to learn and share with each other and reaffirms in all their desire to live the Scouting way of life!

The American Scouting movement has contributed many good citizens, some of whom that have become famous for their contributions to our nation.  One such Scout was a man everyone knew as “Jigger”.  Walter Aspley was a good example to all by following the principles of Scouting throughout his life.  The spirit of Scouting lives on with the “Jigger Bell” at this event, ringing out his spirit to all by the unit that demonstrates true Scouting spirit.

This year the Barren River Lake Scout Celebration will commemorate a score of time where all Scouts will rendezvous at Gilwell Field and light the ceremonial campfire for the twentieth time.  The Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of the USA shall demonstrate to all their commitment to serving God and country and to live by a standard that is the strength of this nation.
