Giving Tuesday is on December 1st this year!

This is a day of giving to non-profits during the holiday season.


This year, if you donate a minimum of $40 to the Westchester-Putnam Council Giving Tuesday Campaign between

Nov. 17 - Dec. 5, you will receive a 2021 Read/Durland Scenic Calendar as a thank-you.


What better way to spend 2021 than looking at beautiful scenic photos of Read and Durland? 


Donate to the Giving Tuesday Campaign, and take pride in knowing you've

positively impacted a local child's Scouting Experience.


Thank you.

About Us

The Camp Read Association is open to all who have an interest in the Curtis S. Read Scout Reservation. Our primary mission is to support the Camp and the Westchester-Putnam Council and to ensure that it continues to grow and prosper.


We host several activities each year, providing vital support to the Camp, and organizing fun events for its members. 


Our largest event is the reunion, which is held every five years at the Camp.


Although there are no dues required to join, there are benefits to contributing and become a “Friend of Read” such as discounts at our events.

Your support is needed and greatly appreciated!


The Association publishes a bi-annual newsletter in the Spring and Fall. 

Also published by Association is the "Memorial Guidebook": a field guide to Memorials, Dedications and place of interest throughout the Reservation.
