The Connecticut Yankee Council owns and operates five Camps

Camps which fulfill the needs of the Council’s many outdoor programs, programs that have always been at the heart of the Scouting Movement. These camps are maintained under the direction of the Camping Committee; Vice President of Camping Bill Hall and Staff Advisor Myke Morrell, Director of Camping.

As you can imagine it takes a great amount of effort to ensure the health and success of a camp, but the potential rewards are also great! Just think about the possibilities expressed in the verse Wood-Smoke from the poem “The Feet of the Young Men” by Rudyard Kipling a friend of Lord Baden-Powell.

In Scouts it’s you and I, the volunteer,
that makes a Camp even possible.


So make up your mind to do your part each year,

choose a direction and;

Who hath smelt wood-smoke at twilight?

Who hath heard the birch-log burning?

Who is quick to read the noises of the night?

Let them follow with the others,

for the Young feet are turning

Too the camps of proved desire and known delight!
