Camp Workcoeman is excited to announce an innovative schedule of program offerings for Cubs, Scouts BSA and families for the summer of 2022. The central leadership is back again for this summer ready to guide a fun, educational and challenging program for all. Please review the information below for information on all our program offerings.
Scouts BSA Adventures
Options for Scouts include:
- Unit Overnight Camping – Troops can choose to rent a
campsite, have Scouts participate in merit badges and
reserve a program area during times available.
- Family Camping– Families can reserve a campsite in our
deluxe family campsite featuring ‘family sized’ tents, cots
and adirondack chairs. Scouts can then sign up to
participate in the merit badge program during the day.
- Individual Scout– Scouts can attend for the day and
participate in the camp’s merit badge program. Lunch will be
served as part of the merit badge program.
This program allows Scouts BSA the flexibility of experiencing a
summer Scouting Program, whether it be as an individual, with
their troop or with their family. This program offers a variety of
programs, meant to appeal to Scouts of various ages and ranks.

Pack Overnight Camping
Packs are welcome to reserve a campsite and camp overnight in a campsite featuring the traditional canvas tents, bunks and mattresses and fully stocked latrine. Packs can also elect to participate in an ‘a la carte’ program during their stay.
Baloo's Family Weekends
We are excited to offer programs open to the entire family–check out the programs below open to Cubs, Scouts BSA and the whole family.
This program is designed for Cub Scouts to participate in a weekend of Scouting with their families. Together, Scouts with their family members will experience the outdoors and enjoy the activities associated with Scouting during the summer months. Families will stay in the canvas tents with bunks and mattresses.
Cost: Pricing is $90 for youth/parent pair, $40 for additional youth or adult.
Program offerings will include meals served in the dining hall, shooting sports, swimming, boating, climbing and a Saturday evening campfire.
Camp Workcoeman has a partnership with the Connecticut SCUBA Academy that allows Scouts and Adults to become certified SCUBA Divers. Scouts will earn SCUBA Merit Badge and the SCUBA BSA Award by participating in this program. Check out the Connecticut SCUBA Academy website HERE for further information.
To participate, Scouts can either sign up individually for SCUBA Courses running during the weeks listed below.
Units may contact Lou Seiser at email@example.com to
set up a course at another time that works both for your unit and
our SCUBA Instructors.

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.
