peterloon


Held every two years in the fall, Peterloon is the premier event of the Dan Beard Council. The world’s longest running Council Jamboree took its name from the Emery family farm where it was held annually from 1927 until 1956, when it became so large that it moved to Camp Lower Craig, now called Cub Scout Adventure World, at the Dan Beard Scout Reservation near Loveland, Ohio.

Over 6,000 Scout Youths, Adult Scouters, Leaders, Volunteers, Parents, and Visitors attended Peterloon 2012 and a celebrated Scouting’s centennial together. Our tradition of delivering the longest continually operating Camporee in the worldwide history of Scouting has been maintained and extended another two years. The Eagle Scout Association is proud to sponsor a contest station each Peterloon to challenge the visiting Scouts in a patrol competition. Additionally, we interact with Eagle Scouts in our booth at the midway.
