Hoyt Scout Camp

The John Sherman Hoyt Scout Reservation is located on 170 acres of pristine forest and fields in West Redding, Connecticut. This is a primitive facility except for three pavilions, two latrines, and a training cabin. Trails circumscribe the camp which provide for rigorous hikes and up close encounters with myriad wild creatures and native trees and plants. An orienteering course is available for those looking for a more challenging adventure. 


Hoyt is an excellent weekend destination as well as a departure point for many off camp experiences.  To check availability and/or make reservations for most camp facilities online, go to:  http://www.ctyankee.org/webpay/stermcamping/new

With questions or to reserve the rifle range, contact Camping Registrar Carolyn Cruson at 203-876-6868, ext. 273 or e-mail carolyn.cruson@scouting.org.
