BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA
Campfire has always had a long and deep history with the Boy Scouts. The Camp Fire Club of America was founded in 1897 by a group of men who loved the outdoors. They included hunters, target shooters, anglers, explorers, authors, artists, photographers, and most most importantly conservationists. Naturalist William T. Hornaday organized the club. Daniel Carter Beard and Ernest Thompson Seton, the co-founders of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), were two of the original thirty-four charter members of Camp Fire.
