The trail crew held this weekend was a success. Despite the snow cover hindering what could be done, crews using axes and two-man crosscut saws cleared the vast majority of trees that had fallen on the trails over the past few years, and others posted signs delineating Workcoeman’s western and northern property boundaries.
A big thank you to the Scouts and Scouters that helped with the trail crew projects this weekend. Much appreciation to the group of staff members, Troop 121, Troop 23, Troop 18, Troop 3, Troop 6, Troop 425, Troop 68, and camp alumni who toiled to improve Workcoeman’s trails.
Camp Workcoeman is located in the hills of northwest Connecticut in scenic New Hartford and Barkhamsted. The camp consists of approximately 427 acres on the shore of beautiful West Hill Pond, possibly the cleanest in Connecticut.
Established in 1924, it is one of the oldest continuously operated Scout camps in the country. For 93 years, thousands of Scouts and Scouters have had unforgettable Scouting experiences at Camp Workcoeman. This fine tradition of Scouting continues today.
