In August 1907 Robert Baden-Powell brought 22 boys from various backgrounds to the island for what turned out to be the beginning of the International Scout Movement.   This monument marks the location of that first scout camp, and the island is still used by the Scouting Movement today.   

This was a somewhat awkward shot, as the lighting was behind the inscription, so I shot slightly at an angle to keep the sun off the lens.
