Cedarlands 2014
The Revolutionary Trails Council has expressed interest in running a summer camp program at Cedarlands in 2014. Doing so will require a combined effort from both volunteers and troop units.

I am happy to announce that we are now actively looking for units who would like to attend summer camp at Cedarlands in 2014. Your early commitment will help solidify and strengthen the program we can offer in 2014.

For more information please contact the council office and/or contact John Stratton directly at jjrmstrat -at- You can also reach us on Facebook. We look forward to hearing from all who are interested in attending.

Future of Cedarlands
The Revolutionary Trails Council has announced that there will not be a regular program at Cedarlands Scout Reservation for the summer of 2012.

While this is certainly sad news, Friends of Cedarlands is actively advocating for a future program at camp. We believe that Cedarlands -- with its 5000 acres in the Central Adirondacks, its large private lake, its beautiful mountains, and its long tradition of providing units with a flexible program that fits their individual needs -- is the best and most unique Scout property in the Adirondacks and in the Northeast Region. We firmly believe that a program can thrive with proper support and promotion. It would be an enormous loss if future Scouts cannot experience summer camp at Cedarlands.

If you have ideas for how to bring a program back to Cedarlands, or you would like to get involved in our efforts, contact us at friendsofcedarlands -at- or go to our Facebook page.

Yours in Scouting,
Board of Directors of Friends of Cedarlands

Watts' Lodge & Boat House Architectural Gallery
We have a new Friends of Cedarlands Photo Gallery featuring original architecture plans of Watts' Lodge and the Boat House!

"A couple of summers ago I was lucky enough to have Gerry Showalter transfer copies of original architectural plans of the Watts' Lodge and Boat House at Cedarlands to my computer. Unfortunately, some years ago, 1980 to be precise, the Watts' Lodge burned down. Younger Cedarlands Scouters today know this lodge as all that stands--the iconic chimney by the lake. Below are the original visualizations of the lodge drawn up by the architect(s) many years ago."
