June 1st is an important and busy day at camp as both Beaver Day and our annual Steak Dinner will be held.
The Steak Dinner, hosted by the Citizens of Shawtown, is an 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. To reserve your spot sign-up online.
The 2019 Camp Workcoeman Program Guide is now available! It contains all the information you need to plan your week of Scouts BSA camp at Camp Workcoeman.
Summer is fast approaching. To make sure you and your troop are prepared, we ask that each troop sends their camp Scoutmaster and Senior Patrol Leader to one of our pre-camp planning 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 11th and 18th beginning at 1:30 PM. An additional meeting for Long Island troops will be held April 27th beginning at 10:00 AM in St. Raymond’s School Cafeteria (263 Atlantic Avenue, East Rockaway, NY 11518). It is only necessary to attend one of these meetings. Please confirm attendance to the Camp Director, Lou Seiser ([email protected]).
