Inscription.
From 1929 to 1940 Arthur Brisbane made available this land as the official scout camp for Monmouth County Boy Scouts. Thousands of boys camped here enjoying the natural beauty of the woods while receiving scout training in self-reliance and kindred virtues.

This plaque commemorates the distinguished service rendered by the Scouts and Scouters of Monmouth Council, Boy Scouts of America, in the early rehabilitation of the buildings at Allaire, with the help of individuals, service clubs and fraternal organizations who were interested in the camping program of the Boy Scouts of America.
