Scouting in Connecticut

New site tidbit: Our activities can be found on the Council calendar which  can be found in multiple locations on the site. Its on the homepage in grid format and can also be found by clicking the calendar tab on the top of the main page. The calendar can be searched using the magnifying glass in the top left of the calendar image. The calendar can be filtered by district, category, and camp. You can also subscribe to your own calendar and have your device's calendar sync with Scouting events. Calendars for specific Districts and groups can be found on those pages. For example the Order of the Arrow specific calendar can be found on the Order of the Arrow page.

We want to highlight important points that are most relevant to the Connecticut Rivers Council:

  • The Connecticut Rivers Council has not filed for bankruptcy. Our Council is legally separate, distinct and financially independent from the national organization.
  • Scouting programs will continue. This means that unit meetings and activities, district and council events, other Scouting adventures and countless service projects will take place as usual. In short, we expect no changes to the local Scouting experience in the Connecticut area.
  • Scouting is safer now than ever before. Over many years, we’ve developed some of the strongest expert-informed youth protection policies found in any youth-serving organization. I can also assure you that our volunteers and employees take youth protection extremely seriously and do their part to help keep kids safe.
  • Restricted donations – past, present or future – can only be used for their designated purpose. In addition, the annual giving campaign and other annual donations made to our Council will continue to fund necessary day-to-day expenses that are critical to our local Scouting programs here in Connecticut.
  • Our Scout Service Center will continue to serve our Scouting volunteers and families just as they always have
  • Our camps will continue to provide awesome outdoor adventures for Scouts and families of all ages.
