This is a tragic and heroic story. I'm glad to see the monument being cared for. Here are links to two Ray Collett posts on the flood from first hand accounts:

And today's story about the work at the monument:

Today, White’s Creek is peaceful and the flow of water is gentle. But in the early morning of March 23, 1929, a flash flood roared down White’s Creek. Scouts and their leaders from troop 45 were huddled in a cabin asleep when the rising water of the creek took everyone by surprise. Seven boys drowned. Scoutmaster James Wright drowned while trying to save one of his scouts.
