Scouting taught me to seek out the best version of myself, to work hard for the things I want to accomplish, because anything worth doing is worth working hard. - Jacob O.

Important Update from the Council President -  August 2, 2020……Suffolk County Council of the Boy Scouts of America announced today that they have been made aware of a camp staff member testing positive for COVID-19.  The staff member had been asymptomatic and was tested as part of their college’s return to school protocol. The Council and Camp are in direct communication with the Suffolk County Department of Health. Out of an abundance of caution several other staff members and several Scouts have been advised to self-quarantine. Following the guidelines of the Health Department and our own procedures, the camp is being thoroughly cleaned and will remain open.

“The health and safety of our Scouting family is the only thing that matters.  We have conducted our camp with the highest level of safety protocols and despite all efforts, the pathogen found its way into our program.  We now shift our focus to support everyone involved”, said Boy Scouts of America, Suffolk County Council President, Dave Colford. Those who may have been in contact with this staff member have already been notified.

We are continuing with our summer camp plans.  Any updates to our summer camp program will be posted to the Council’s website at:

Any questions with regards to this information, Baiting Hollow Scout Camp, or related matters can be submitted to Jim Grimaldi at:
