The Iroquois Trail Council, which serves all of the Boy Scout troops of Orleans County, is hosting an Eagle Scout alumni event on Friday, July 17th at Camp Dittmer in Phelps, New York. This is open to anyone who became an Eagle Scout in any troop of the Iroquois Trail Council or its predecessor – the Lewiston Trail Council.

The purpose of this event is to bring together the Council’s Eagle scouts (youth and adults alike) in hopes of creating an Eagle Scout Alumni Association that will mentor potential Eagle Scouts, host networking events, and conduct service projects at Camp Dittmer or Camp Sam Wood.

Check-in will be at 4:00 PM and the evening will include a meet-and-greet, a State of the Council address, dinner with the campers, a camp tour and a camp fire. Also, if anyone would like to make a full day out of it, the camp will be accessible all day long, allowing the Eagles to check out program areas and watch the water carnival.

If you would like to attend this event, please email Board President Bob Confer at and Council Executive Jim McMullen at For more information, the Council’s website is
