Invitation for all scouters to attend Housatonic Council's Summer Camp in Goshen, CT

Recommended Posts

To all scouters,


I would like to invite all of you to attend Edmund Stang Scout Reservation which is run by the Housatonic Council. The camp is located in Goshen, Ct and runs a terrific program emphasis on merit bades, advancement and pure all around fun including the bi-weekly dance we hold for the enjoyment of all campers with Camp Mohawk, a girls camp in Litchfield(nearby town). You will have the opportunity for rafting trips along the Housatonic River and many more days trips will be announced! Venturing crews are welcome, ask us for more information on programs that will be offered for crews if any different then the regular Boy Scout schedule. Many people from out of council come to our camp every year from New York and around Connecticut and looking forward to broading this! Seasons will be offered by week for a total of 4 weeks, you may attend all 4 or just one if you choose. You may reserve campsites at camp depending on the size of your troop or be placed with another troop and will operate as a conjoined troop for that week, single scouts without leaders or troops are also welcomed. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU CAMP STRANG THIS SUMMER!

I would like to note that spaces are running out to reserve a campsite at Camp Strang so please hurry. My recommendation is that you reserve either the Tierney Lean To's, Wepawaug or the Paugassett campsites because the are central to most the camp.

Since the last time I posted 4 more slots were filled up, and I thank you for your interested in such a worthwhile camp. There are still 7-8 slots remaining for troops to attend summer camp this summer. Week 2 is completely booked, there are 1-2 in week 1, 3, and 4. My recommendation is that you choose the Tierney Lean-To's, Paugassett, Wepawaug or Scaticook. Those are my favorite 4 campsites at Camp Strang.


NOTE: We are also currently searching for a camp nurse, head chef and other staff positions for those preferably 17+.


You will find a staff application on the council website!



Thanks again!
