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 3 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!

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.
