Centennial Celebration Kicks Off with a Five Mile Hike

Nine hikers explored Shawtown on Saturday. They hiked for about five miles and saw several springs, the former Wright Homestead, the four-corners, and the sheep pen. The hikers learned about the Convention Army and a bit about the 19th century rural economy. A lovely light snow fell for much of the morning, with the clouds lifting just as the hikers reached the Camp Overlook.

Additional Spring Scouts BSA Events Added

Additional Scouts BSA events have been added to the Camp Workcoeman’s spring schedule. These include two Spring Break Merit Badge Days sponsored by the Camp Workcoeman Alumni Association and a Tenderfoot’s Compass Five Mile Hike. Visit the Scouts BSA Upcoming Events page to register.

A Message from Camp Director Lou Seiser

The Connecticut Rivers Council is implementing a new process of maintaining and improving our camp properties. During this transition time, our friend and Ranger at Camp Workcoeman, Frank Galliher, has decided to pursue other opportunities. Frank’s dedication and contributions to Camp Workcoeman are immensely appreciated. We all wish Frank and his family the very best.

That said, at a time of transition, it is not uncommon for rumors to surface. I want to assure you that Camp Workcoeman is here to stay. It is NOT closing, and it is NOT being sold. We will continue to offer monthly programs and dynamic summer program opportunities for Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA members while also serving as the Council’s Leadership Development Center.

As we celebrate this Centennial season, we look forward to the next one hundred years of Scouting at Camp Workcoeman!
