Help Make The Reservation Better

Spring Work Trek

On May 21-23, the Crystal Lake Scout Reservation invites everyone to camp for a weekend of projects to help get camp ready for the upcoming summer. Each year there is a variety of new projects from construction, maintenance, to landscaping. E ntire units are welcome to stay in any campsite for free. Anyone who participates in the service will be served three meals on Saturday and one meal on Sunday for free. This is a great weekend of fellowship and service and also allows you to take part and pride in the great place the Crystal Lake Scout Reservation is. More Information on the Spring Work Trek page!

Crystal Lake Construction Crew

Since the early 1930’s Samoset Council has prided itself in maintaining our properties using volunteer laborers for many different projects. Did you know the Rotary Lodge located at Tesomas was built by our very first construction crew? Don’t worry, we have projects as simple as painting a door or installing
a light. The Crew does everything from simple maintenance to completely building a new cabin. Whatever it takes to make our Council camps the best. Interested in helping out? Check out the Construction Crew page for more information!
