Beaver Day and Steak Dinner

June 3rd is an important and busy day at camp as both Beaver Day and our annual Steak Dinner will be held.

Beaver Day allows us to get a jump start on preparing camp for the summer season. Besides setting up tents, bunks, and mattresses, numerous other maintenance projects are carried out. Any and all help is appreciated. We’ll meet at 8:30 AM to discuss projects and work will begin at 9. Lunch is provided. For more information please see the Beaver Day Flier.

The Steak Dinner, hosted by the Citizens of Shawtown, is our annual fundraiser. Dinner begins in the Camp Workcoeman Dining Hall at 6 PM and is preceded by hors d'oeuvres at 5:30 PM. The cost to attend is $25 for adults and $13 for children 10 and under with all proceeds benefiting camp improvement projects. For more information and to reserve your spot, see this flier or sign-up online.

Leader Orientation Meetings

Summer is fast approaching. To make sure you and your troop are prepared, we ask that each troop sends a representative to one of our leader orientation meetings. We will discuss information on new merit badges, program opportunities, medical form preparations, and everything you need to know for planning your troop’s summer camp experience.

Meetings will be held in the Camp Workcoeman Dining Hall on May 6th and 20th beginning at 1:30 PM. An additional meeting for Long Island troops will be held May 13th beginning at 10 AM in the Notre Dame Parish Rectory (45 Mayfair Rd, New Hyde Park, NY 11040). It is only necessary to attend one of these meetings.
