Scout Honor Societies

Quequatuck Indians - June 4, 1928, The Westerly, Rhode Island Lions Club gave to the Westerly Troops of Boy Scouts of America a tract of land on the Pawcatuck River, near the Meeting House Bridge, for a scout reservation, which locality the Indians of long ago called “Quequatuck.” Therefore, the site was dedicated “Quequatuck.” The Quequatuck Indians, an honorary society of Westerly Boy Scouts was instituted to act as guardians of their camp, membership being chosen according to the scout’s ability as a camper.
