In the mid 1930's, a Boy Scout Camp was established at Lake Guajataka, a man-made reservoir constructed by the Water Resources Authority of Puerto Rico. Two hundred acres of land were dedicated to a camp at that time and many of the facilities date from that era. A major forestation project was undertaken and today, this has matured to create a unique environment for scouting activities.
Over the intervening years, many structures have been added as the use of the camp has grown, many of these out of context of a camp vocabulary. Many of the original structures, mostly of untreated wood have deteriorated to the point where they have to be replaced.
The need to rehabilitate the existing Boy Scout Camp is imperative in order to provide adequate facilities to maintain the scouting program at the same level as it has been over the years. With the potential of funding through the "FIDEICOMISO DE NIÑOS", Law 173 of July 30, 1999, of the Government of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, not only could the existing camp be renovated but a new Cub Scout Camp is a great possibility.
It would expand the camping experience to boys ages 6-10 years and could be constructed on land that is adjacent to the existing camp, still on the original property. With this possible new camp is mind, a Master Plan for the future development was created.
Two alternatives were studied, one using the existing 200 acres of land and a second with additional land acquisition of properties that bound on the existing land. In recent years, we have designed new structures in a vocabulary in keeping with the forest environment.
