Scouting’s Largest Conference
We take great pride in our 90-year history with the Boy Scouts of America. That’s why we’re excited to be the title sponsor of the 2019 National Outdoor Conference. The 4-day conference marks Scouting’s largest gathering of volunteers and professionals.
The National Outdoor Conference will take place at Philmont Scout Ranch, the Boy Scout’s largest National High Adventure Base. From September 25 through September 29, participants will have the chance to participate in elective sessions, keynote speakers, vendor exhibits, backcountry excursions, special programs, Scouting fellowship, and more. Best of all, Diamond Brand Gear will be hosting a course on best practices for wall tent care and maintenance.
The Hestia: Glamping Wall Tent
Attendees will also get a sneak peek of our brand new 12×16 foot glamping tent, the Hestia. The canvas wall tent will feature unique windows, including a picture window, room for extra amenities, and the option to add a front porch space. Additionally, we will be displaying all three sizes and colorways of our dining canopies in the registration area.
Wall Tent Education
“For nearly a century, Diamond Brand Gear has supported the Boy Scout’s commitment to building character and developing leadership in today’s youth and tomorrow’s leaders,” says COO Lauren Rash. “We are proud to be the title sponsor of the National Outdoor Conference and to expand our wall tent education among Scouting volunteers and professionals.”
We’ve made it our mission to spread wall tent education across the country. Lauren and CEO John Delaloye recently traveled to Indiana to meet with the Crossroads of America Council. There, they helped rangers with continuing education on the best practices for wall tent care and maintenance to extend the life of the camp’s current wall tent inventory.
