Council Construction and Maintenance

 

Leatherstocking Council  is providing greater accessibility and higher quality of camp facilities via numerous repair and renovation projects at both of our council camps.  This year's major project will be the new Dining Hall / Training Center at Camp Henderson and upgrading building for YR camping and winter camping at Camp Kingsley. 

Construction will be ongoing though out the year and we ask Scouts  and visitors to the camps to keep out of the current contruction Zones for your saftey. 

Ranger must be contacted before starting any projects. We encourage units to complete projects while at camp. Supplies will be provided, if you contact the ranger early we can have supplies ready when you get to camp. 

** - Chain Saw work must be completed by LSC Approved Chain Saw Operators.
