We would like to acknowledge the brave work of our community's essential workers, first responders, and healthcare workers during this crisis and send positive thoughts to all who are coping with this pandemic. 

During these times the Housatonic Council continues to follow the recommendations of the CDC and the Governor's Orders regarding COVID-19. 

SUMMER CAMP AT THE EDMUND D. STRANG SCOUT RESERVATION - It is with regret that we share the following information with our Scouting Family: Monday evening, Governor Lamont signed Executive Order 7PP, Section 8.

To limit the spread of COVID-19 and secure the health and safety of children and staff of resident camps, all operations of resident camps, as defined by Section 19a-420 (2) of the Connecticut General Statutes are prohibited. As alternative options become available we will share them with you.
