1920s and 1930s 

Woodcraft Rangers opens its doors to Los Angeles’ youth in 1922, based on founder Ernest Thompson Seton’s principles of character building through a tribal model of organization—service, truth, fortitude, and beauty.  


Woodcraft Rangers grows to serve over 3,000 children at 94 sites throughout Los Angeles  County, and operating two summer camps, which give over 600 children the opportunity to experience nature firsthand.
