What is known today as Camp Patten began as a gift from an incredible Friend of Scouting, Mr. Lawson Leo Patten (1896-1983). Camp Patten was donated to the South Georgia Council of the Boy Scouts of America in 1965 to further promote the ideals and methods of the Scouting movement. The original pond was built by Mr. Patten in 1936 as a fun place for family and friends.
