Camp Workcoeman is used year-round for short-term camping for all Scouting Cub Packs, Scout Troops, and Venture Crews, as well as for 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 Scouts BSA Resident Camp and one week of Webelos Resident Camp and Cub Scout Day Camp. It is also home to Laurel Music Camp.
The Citizens of Shawtown is Camp Workcoeman’s volunteer support organization which works throughout the year to provide instructional support for camp programs and to organize, fund, and carry out maintenance projects.
