Resica Falls Scout Reservation

The first set of pictures show different views of Resica Falls and Great Bend Camp.   The second set of pictures are from summers with Troop 116 (Valley Forge Council) at Fawn Run and Great Bend Camps during the early to mid 1970s.  The third set of pictures are from summers with the Great Bend Staff during the late 1970s as well as the last picture in 1980.  The Great Bend portion of Resica Falls was closed to Summer Scout Camp at the end of the Summer 1980 season.  The fourth and last set of pictures show patches from Resica Falls Scout Reservation from 1973 through 1980.
