Scouts BSA Camping

Outdoor adventure is a promise made to boys and girls when they join Scouting.  Today, the amount of time kids spend outside is alarmingly low…only minutes per day! Through Scouting, our goal is to get our Scouts outside where they have the opportunities to canoe, hike, shoot, swim and just be Scouts.

Why is this important?  In the outdoors, boys and girls have opportunities to learn skills that they can’t get anywhere else.  Here they find inspiration, learn teamwork, and become leaders.  Learning by doing is a hallmark of outdoor education and Scouting wrote the book.  As always, thanks for investigating a CRC Scouts BSA camping opportunity and GO SCOUTING!

 

Here in Connecticut, we have four amazing properties and 2 Scouts BSA Resident Camps scattered across the state – each with it’s own unique opportunities.  Scouts can earn merit badges along their advancement trail or experience our premier programs such as; climbing and ATV riding, pistol shooting and aquatics – our camps have what you’re looking for!

Camp Workcoeman Adventures

With the success of the short-term camping program at Camp Workcoeman over the past two summers, we are excited to announce we will be renewing the program in 2023. We saw over 400 Scouts come through the programs at Workcoeman this summer.  From SCUBA to merit badges from Day Camp to family camping we have A LA Carte program for Scouts at all levels.

Camperships

The Connecticut Rivers Council makes an effort to see that all Scouts have the chance to benefit from the programs offered at our three Camps. Should a Scout’s family be in a financial situation where assistance is needed, they may apply for a campership. Please know that camperships do not cover the full cost of registration, and are subject to approval by the Campership Committee. 

Every few years, the BSA updates its Annual Health and Medical Record after consulting with health care professionals, Scout executives, council and camp health officers and other experts to ensure it is up-to-date and helpful.

This was one of those years, meaning a new form is available for everyone to use for 2020. Your AHMR is valid through the end of the 12th month after the date it was administered by your medical provider. For example, if you got your physical on Nov. 3, 2019, it’s valid until Nov. 30, 2020.

Next year will be a transition year, so you can use either the old or new form, but everyone in all Scouting programs must use the updated AHMR form starting Jan. 1, 2021. The old form will be obsolete at that date. So, the BSA recommends using the new form on your next physical exam or if you’re a new participant in 2020.  

The state of Connecticut requires additional paperwork that we named part D.  The complete form for Connecticut Camps can be downloaded by clicking the button below. 

***All Scouters (Adult Volunteers) and eligible Scouts are strongly encouraged to get the vaccine early & prior to attending summer camp so that they are fully vaccinated by the time they arrive at camp.
