The District History Committee is responsible for preserving the rich history of Scatacook District, through words, pictures, and images. By documenting our origins, we can pass our legacy on to the next generation of Scouts and Scouters. Our history includes units that have grown and prospered, and others that have passed on. Our history includes Cubmasters and Scoutmasters from long ago, as well as Commissioners as well as District Committee members. Our history includes memories of past Klondike Derbies, Camporees, and the like, remembered through patches and photos.

Please contact us if you have a memory that you would like to preserve.
