As a boy Frank E. Poland spent his summers at his ancestral home in Washington. He roamed the woods, swam in the lake, and learned much about nature. Later, as a schoolmaster in a large city, he wanted to give other boys the same delights he had enjoyed as a child. In1904, with the help of Walter Bentley, he brought 24 boys to his family home on Medomak Lake, and the Medomak Boys Camp was created.
