Camp Yawgoog, in Hopkinton Rhode Island, celebrates its centennial. The Boy Scout camp is the second oldest continuously operating Boy Scout camp in the country. Spokeswoman for the Narragansett Council of the Boy Scouts of America Kaitlin Curtis said many camp traditions haven’t changed in 100 years.
“But they’re also implementing more modern activities, such as robotics – that’s actually a merit badge that they can earn there now,” said Curtis. “So they’re modernizing to keep up with the 21st century, but also the core values are the same.”
