Directory History and Geography Timeline

The 1990s provided an opportunity for experimentation with program and fundraising.  The C.O.P.E. program at Horseshoe developed as well as its offshoot, the Mountain Biking program, and Scoutcraft outgrew its original design and became the Trailblazer program.  Several different fundraising campaigns by Chester County Council and the Order of the Arrow helped improve existing facilities at HSR and Bill Hess became Reservation Director to help usher in a new era of program and facility excellence.
