While the Area 4 History website is primarily focused on local Order of the Arrow history, it is impossible to tell these stories without noting the Scout Camps they supported.

Sadly, most of these camps no longer exist as Scouting facilities.

There are many camp collectors and historians, and rather than duplicate their excellent work, this Section will merely add details, newspaper clippings, and other stories.
