STORIES OF SCOUTING FROM THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
WHERE ALL TRAILS END
Episode 3 | Released April 20
"It was a different time back then" or at least, so we are told. In this episode of Where All Trails End – Stories of Scouting from the Pacific Northwest, hear about what Boy Scout camp was like in the 20th century and experience the Camp Parsons of today. Be prepared to experience the campfires, dining hall songs, troop life, the pier jump and decide for yourself whether Baden Powell was right when he declared “a week of camp life is worth six months of theoretical teaching in the meeting room." This episode also features a profile on Bill Gates' scouting experience.
About the Series
BRINNON, WASHINGTON - Most come to summer camp only looking for fun, but many leave Camp Parsons, a 100-year-old Boy Scout camp on the Puget Sound, with an even greater treasure. Parsons scouts were some of the first to explore the Olympic mountains, and have gone on to save lives, lead scientific expeditions, major companies, hold some of the highest offices in the United States and much more.
In this radio documentary series, Ben Dietderich brings Camp Parsons to you. Hear for yourself what's behind the magic that makes so many grown men call this remote scout camp "home."
