Activities - Lean-tos Now Available at Hoyt Posted Nov. 23, 2015
Thanks to generous donations from a number of Scouters and Units in our Council, plus the hard work of the Hoyt Campmaster Corps, the new Cleveland Campsite at Hoyt Scout Reservation with 4 Lean-tos is available for camping. Each lean-to is sized to accommodate a patrol. Located on the North side of the Camp, in the vicinity of the Training Cabin, the lean-tos are a perfect addition to the Camp. The Cleveland site is named after our 22nd and 24th President, and not after the 48th largest city in the US.

Pictures here: https://hoytalumniassociation.shutterfly.com/304

The Campmasters have completed work on 6 additional leantos in the brand new Hoover campsite, and are ready for occupancy NOW. The site is named after the 31st President and not the famous brand of vacuum cleaner.

Don't wait. Reserve the Cleveland or Hoover Campsites ASAP.
