Baden-Powell Visits Fort McHenry Camporee

Saturday October 2nd turned out to be a stupendous day, a complete weather reversal from the tropical storm remnants nor'easter that came through the area Thursday. Thousands of Scouts, Scouters and the general public came to Fort McHenry, the National Monument in Baltimore, for the Star Spangled Camporee.

Some units got to camp inside the fort itself. Pictured here is a visit by Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the world Scouting movement, within the camping grounds.

I'm only sorry more Scouts could not have experienced this!
