Permanent Exhibits

Have you ever wondered what the history of Boxwell was? Or what program was like at camp years ago? This website is an attempt to give you some of that information - a peek back through the haze to see what Boxwell used to be like through pictures, stories and songs!

The Reservation section looks at how camp facilities have changed over the years and how Boxwell has been influenced by other places. This is a great place for pictures of when camps had tents for trading posts and dining halls!

Camp Life explores what a week at camp was like for a Scout at Boxwell. Obviously, Boxwell has changed a great deal since 1960. Thus, the day to day activities have Scouts have changed a great deal too!

Program looks at games, merit badges, songs and other such camp program over the years. A great place to finally learn the words to some of those songs you never understood!

The Staff section takes a quick look at some of those Scouts and Scouters that have served on Boxwell's staff over the years.

There is also a special section on Cedar Valley, a camp in Arkansas. Cedary Valley was the camp of Ward Akers before he came to Middle Tennessee Council and built the modern Boxwell. You can see the influence here.
