Welcome to Patriot Days
53rd Patriot Days Encampment

Patriot Days for 2021 is Cancelled
Sadly we have again made the decision to cancel Patriot Days due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Daniel Boone Homestead is re-opening to the public on April 30, with limited capacity and social distancing rules in place. There are not yet firm plans for the Homestead to be able to welcome groups and campers, thus making it impossible to plan an event in June.
We have been approved for Patriot Days for June 10, 11, 12 in 2022
The Patriot Days Committee wishes all a healthy and successful year and we look forward to the return of Patriot Days in 2022.
Join us for the Weekend or Just for the Day!
Since 1967 thousands of youth have gathered annually for one weekend in June at the Daniel Boone Homestead in Birdsboro, Pennsylvania, to meet new friends and share in a unique camping experience. Participants include Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Camp Fire, Heritage Girls, family campers, and other youth organizations.
The Patriot Days Encampment Committee operates the Encampment with the cooperation of the Daniel Boone Homestead. The Committee is composed of volunteers with backgrounds in different areas of Scouting and is not affiliated with any other organization.
Each year campers enjoy a wide range of interesting and enjoyable events, activities, and attractions through the entire weekend. Our program includes demonstrations, skill games, a camp fire, a dance, competitions, local craftspeople, and tours of the Daniel Boone Homestead. Other things are in the planning stages as we constantly update the program.
