Ask anyone what they think of when you say “Boy Scouts” and the vast majority will mention camping and the outdoors. That's why here in the Connecticut Rivers Council, we've worked hard to create summer camp programs that are fun, adventurous, and incredible learning experiences. Our three Boy Scout summer camps each have their own personality and programs to ensure your Scout has a great experience no matter which program he or she attends. Scroll down to find out more about our excellent programs.
In addition to providing high quality programs for our Scouts, the CT Rivers Council believes it must ensure every Scout that wants to attend camp has the ability to experience these programs. Therefore, the Connecticut Rivers Council is pleased to offer camperships to Scouts who are members of the Connecticut Rivers Council who attend a Connecticut Rivers Council Camp. The campership deadline is April 1.
he Leave No Trace Trainer Course is a two-day program that teaches the ideals and practices of Outdoor Ethics. Youth and adult participants will learn about the seven principles of Leave No Trace and the skills necessary to implement these ethics in the outdoors. The course also includes basic teaching techniques and, as such, will help a scout to serve as an Outdoor Ethics Guide. Participants should be prepared for a short backpacking trek, and a brief presentation on a Leave No Trace topic.
The Connecticut Rivers Council is offering three courses in 2018; look for more
information about a joint course with the Connecticut Yankee Council in the autumn.
