Welcome Letter From the Camp Director

Dear Scouts and Scouters,

Coming off the success of last year, the 2022 summer camp season may be one of our best summer camp offerings yet. Last summer, we saw nearly 1,200 Scouts come through our gates for their Scouting Adventure at Onteora Scout Reservation: many for the first time!

The last couple of years have been tough for all of us. Like all of you, we are learning to live within the COVID-19 pandemic and while we are prepared to implement some COVID mitigation protocols, we do not expect as many as were in place last summer, nor do we expect them to impact our once-in-a-lifetime experiences for our Scouts and Scouters!

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Theodore Roosevelt Council has remained committed to providing a safe, high-quality program for our youth, both at Onteora and back home. As we shift back to camp as we knew it, we are excited to bring back several programs we offered in 2019, as well as new programs and activities for the 2022 season.

On behalf of the leadership of the Theodore Roosevelt Council, we would like to officially recognize and extend our gratitude to all our 2022 OSR Camp Staff members. They are a remarkable team that is committed to providing an incredible camping experience for all Scouts visiting Onteora this summer. We would also like to show our appreciation to our loyal and dedicated volunteers and alumni: they work tirelessly year-round to maintain our property and ensure our ability to deliver robust programming to the youth we serve.

We look forward to extending a warm “Welcome Home” to you all this summer at the “Land in the Sky”. See you soon!


Yours in Scouting, 


Kevin Shea
