The Other Boxwells

The Other Boxwells

Boxwell Reservation at Old Hickory Lake is the fourth camp to bear the name "Boxwell." While the Old Hickory Lake Boxwelel is undeniably the longest running camp with that name (1960 to present), the other camps...

Camp Craig was the last of the Scout resident camps. The camp had been part of Ward Akers' original vision for Boxwell and an area for a dining hall was even cleared in what is today Camp Light, but the funding just wasn't there in 1960. So, in 1973, following the largest capital campaign in Scouting's history (at that point!), Craig opened for one week. For a brief period, Craig, Stahlman, and Parnell all ran concurrently before Parnell and Craig began a two year rotation, starting in 1976. The most primitive of the camps on the reservation, Craig had pit toilets until the early 2000s! Brought up to date in recent, Craig is now a full time camp along with Camp Stahlman. Over the years, it has seen the leadership of men like Jerry Barnett, Kerry Parker, Aaron Patten, Ian Weir, and J. J. Norman.

Of course, if you're a Craig staff member, you know all this already. Thus, take this opportunity to check out our collection of staff photos and directors listings. If you have a photo we don't or we have some directors information incorrect, let us know.
