Up Riversville Road, Greenwich Scouting’s Camp Seton is hiding in plain sight. Located on 238-acres of private woodlands, the camp features two lakes and five miles of hiking trails.
This week is week 4 of 6. That means there are two one-week sessions remaining for those looking to round out their summer in the outdoors.
Campers stay cool with numerous water breaks, swimming in the pool, and wading in shallow streams.
And while the staff also set up activities under sprinklers for the campers, much of the camp is in the shade of mature trees.
There are about 522 Scouts in Greenwich, and about 21 packs and troops, but camp is open to Scouts and non-scouts, girls and boys, and because of its convenient location, children attend from Stamford and neighboring towns in New York.
District Director Chris Roehler said this summer there are about 350 campers passing through over the six weeks, with some registering for one week, others for multiple weeks.
Activities include boating, swimming, campfire cooking, fishing, archery, slingshots, BB’s, hiking, climbing, handicrafts, woodwork, songs, skits, and learning scout skills.
Every Friday campers, staff, family and friends gather in the shady ampitheater at 2:00pm for awards and skits, a beloved tradition.
Cub Scout Camp. (Boys & girls grades 2-5)– Nothing stirs the imagination or interest of a young child like spending time in the outdoors.
