Scouting isn't anything without qualified youth and adult leadership. HSR has played a large role in hosting many training programs to develop the skills of its leaders.

Over the years, Horseshoe Scout Reservation has been fortunate to host special events ranging from OA Conclaves to foreign Scouts Jamborees.  This room is dedicated to those occasions.

The Horseshoe Scout Reservation Alumni Association has been a fixture at camp since 2000, providing projects and annual alumni reunions to HSR.
While HSR prides itself on having one of the best Cub and Boy Scout programs around, the talents of Scouting volunteers and staff are often suited to facilitate the needs of other interests and organizations hoping to provide a fun, outdoor program of their own. Here are the special events that HSR accomodates or has accomodated in the past.
The Horseshoe Scout Reservation has always enjoyed an active winter camping program and the following exhibits are a testament to the spirit of camping in frigid temperatures.
The Order of the Arrow has been an integral part of the camp maintenance and promotional activities of the camp since the lodge began in 1926. Octoraro #22 members have logged hundreds of thousands of man hours over the years to keep HSR looking great. Note: this room only contains artifacts pertaining to Octoraro #22's activities at HSR; for more information about the Order of the Arrow and Octoraro #22, visit
