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!

Workcoeman Adventures

Workcoeman Adventures: Returning for 2022 Workcoeman Adventures is a summer long series of single day camps geared towards scouts of all ages.  Each day is a new opportunity to explore your interests.  Program will run daily (Tuesday-Thursday, Weekends) from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM and will focus on one specific merit badge, adventure, or award.  Weeks will be themed to ensure scouts get the most out of their experience.

 

Scouts BSA Day Camp

A new Scouts BSA Day Camp will be offered at Camp Mattatuck and JN Webster each week that we offer cub day camp. This program is designed for new Webelos crossovers and new Scouts that might not be comfortable going away to camp all week. It is also good for that Scout that has other obligations like a summer job and still wants to earn merit badges. Each Scout will be placed in a patrol under the leadership of a Scoutmaster on staff at each camp. Scouts will have the opportunity to sign up for merit badges while at camp.

Fee: $275 per week (includes lunch in the dining hall)

Bussing available for $50 per week. (see website for bus route information)

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.
