Scouting in Connecticut

The Connecticut Rivers Council understands that these are difficult times for all families. Due to the extraordinary situation we find ourselves in, we are eliminating the deadline for summer camp early bird deposits. We will work with any family that is experiencing hardship during this time. We offer camperships to help families send their Scouts to camp, all Scouts should have the opportunity to experience Summer Camp!

Our summer camp teams at Camp Mattatuck, Camp Workcoeman, and JN Webster Scout Reservation continue to work hard at getting ready for a great season and we can’t wait to see you at camp this summer.
