Royaneh Village (Golden Gate District)

Welcome to Royaneh Village - The village of the Indian Chief

Communities Served: All of San Francisco & the Northern half of Daly City

History:

Royaneh Village serves the Golden Gate District of the San Francisco Bay Area Council. With a history of service that dates back to 1944 we continue to provide leadership and service to the Packs, Troops, District and Council. Our village name "Royaneh" originated from Royaneh Lodge which in turn got its name from the term the San Francisco Council used in the 1940’s to describe their two council camps.  


The name Royaneh comes from a scout by the name of George Hart from San Francisco Troop 54 who won a competition in 1925 to name the new Scout camp. George indicated that the meaning of the word “Royaneh” came from the Iroquois Indians that meant “Camp of Joy” or “Meeting Place of the Tribes”.


That name in turn comes from the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederation, where the Royaneh were those chiefs who were exemplary spokesman for the people, and answerable to them for decisions made for their families, clans, nations, and the confederation as a whole.
