      Boy Scout Camp Shenandoah, in it’s most recent iteration (and location since 1950), presently consists of 456 acres near Swoope in Augusta County on the eastern slopes of Virginia’s Appalachian Plateau. This site is the permanent location of the Scout camp for the Stonewall Jackson Area Council. However, few realize that “Camp Shenandoah” has been serving the youth of the region many more years and has a much deeper and richer history that extends back to the early part of the twentieth century.
