Activities - Wood Badge Training Posted Apr. 7, 2016
Wood Badge 2016 will consist of two amazing weekends and one great course providing a lifetime of memories. Running August 19-21 and September 23-25 at Camp Pomperaug, Wood Badge brings together leaders from all areas of Scouting -- Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Venturing, Sea Scouting and district/council volunteers and council executive staff.

The course reflects the best of more than 100 years of Scouting experience and draws upon the most current leadership models used in corporate America, academic circles and other successful outdoor leadership organizations. The practical skills learned in this course may be used in Scouting, personal life, as well as the workplace and in other volunteer organizations.

Both weekends and six full days of attendance are required. The program begins Friday morning at 7:30 AM and concludes Sunday afternoon by 4:00 PM on each weekend.

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.
