4 December 2022 — A variety of day and weekend Scouting programs are planned for this winter and spring at Camp Workcoeman. These activities include both Scouts BSA and Cub Scout events as well as adult Scouter training opportunities.
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. Camp staff and volunteers run a variety of year-round programs for Scouts on both an individual and unit basis.
During the six week summer camp season, Scouts enjoy unforgettable Scouting experiences. Currently, the summer camp season consists of four weeks of short-term daytime Scouts BSA opportunities, week-long Scouts BSA Powder Horn and NYLT offerings, and two weeks of Cub Scout Day Camp. Overnight unit and family camping is also available, as well as a variety of à la carte opportunities for units.
The Program Guide for the upcoming Cub Scout Covered Wagon Derby is now available. The event takes place April 28–30, 2023 and is designed to enable Cub Scouts and Webelos to learn and practice outdoor skills related to their rank requirements during a competition with other dens and packs from the surrounding area.
It is themed after the ‘Wild West,’ where each den is encouraged to bring a wagon to carry supplies needed for each activity. In addition to the derby itself, this weekend program will include two nights of camping; breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday; a Saturday night campfire; and a ‘Special Program.’ A commemorative patch will be presented to all Scouts in attendance.
