" Established in 1924 "
In recognition of Camp Workcoeman's 90th Anniversary, we will post a historical vignette each week until the summer camp season opens. These can be found on the camp's Facebook page as well as on this site.
Camp Workcoeman is located in the hills of northwest Connecticut in scenic New Hartford. The camp consists of 550 acres on the shore of beautiful West Hill Lake possibly the cleanest lake in Connecticut.
Established in 1924, it is one of the oldest continuously operated Scout camps in the country. For 88 years, thousands of Scouts and leaders have had unforgettable Scouting experiences at Camp Workcoeman. This fine tradition of Scouting continues today.
Camp Workcoeman is used year-round for short-term camping for all Scouting Cub Packs, Scout Troops, Venture Crews as well as district and Order of the Arrow activities.
During the six week summer camp season, over 1,200 Scouts enjoy unforgettable Scouting experiences. The summer camp season consists of 5 weeks of Boy Scout Resident Adventure Camp and one week of Webelos Resident Camp and Cub Scout Day Camp. It is also home to Laurel Music Camp.
