20 March 2022 — This summer, Camp Workcoeman has a full schedule of summer day programs planned for both Cub Scout and Scouts BSA participants. In addition, unit and family camping is offered all summer, and à la carte programs are available.

Summer Overnight Camping

Unit Camping

Scouting units are able to reserve inner loop campsites (Nathan Hale, Baden Powell, Tunxis, Kahagon, Seton, Outpost) any night of the week all summer (Friday and Saturday night must be reserved together). Canvas tents with cots, canopies, latrines, and showers will be available. If units bring their own food, ice and/or refrigeration may be available upon request. Additionally, prepared food is available for purchase with sufficient notice; please see the order form for details.

À La Carte Programs

While at camp, units should plan their own programs but Scouts may sign up for day programs offered during their stay. Certain camp facilities (shooting ranges, waterfront, climbing wall, etc.) are available for rent for an additional fee. Camp will provide staffing as needed.

Family Camping

Family camping is available in the Tee Pee campsite which features standard and deluxe tents as well as an upgrade latrine. This opportunity is ideal for families with a Scout attending multiple concurrent day programs or those that just want to spend a few days outdoors. Several options are available: (1) bring your own tent for $15/night, (2) standard 7'x9' canvas tents with cots for $25/night, and (3) deluxe 12'x16' canvas tents with bedding for $50/night.

Meals

Upon request, Camp Workcoeman can prepare meals for your unit or family while they are in camp this summer. Meals will be served in the Dining Hall. Breakfast is $4, lunch is $5, and dinner is $6. Meal requests must be made at least two weeks in advance, and payment will be collected at camp.
