“Warwick in History” – The following was taken from a story written by Denton Baird and published in THE WARWICK VALLEY DISPATCH in 1972.

For many years Black Eagle Scout Camp at Wawayanda Lake was run almost single handedly by the Rev. Taber Knox of the Warwick Reformed Church. Mr. Knox, an Army Chaplin during World War I, was a very literate but practical man and loved boys enough to want to share their experiences for most of his adult life.

Sunday morning chapel at Wawayanda was held in the woods; Sunday school in the afternoon on “Table Rock”; and in the evening, a hymn-sing on the lake. The two big events of Scout Camp were the two day Treasure Hunt in boats all over the lake, and Carnival Day. On Carnival Day parents and friends visited to admire their boys’ progress and to picnic and visit with the other Warwick families.

“Black Eagle,” with the Rev. Mr. Knox, helped mold hundreds of Warwick boys who later became responsible railroaders, farmers, business and professional men.
