Eagle Scout Donation Restores Camp DeWolfe Natural Areas

Eagle Scout and troop present check to Camp DeWolfe

On March 25th 2023, Camp DeWolfe, the Diocesan Year-Round Camp and Retreat Center in Wading River, NY, received a generous donation of $1500 by Scout Jonathan DiMarco and Boy Scout Troop 221 of Manorville for his Eagle Scout Project. The check was presented to Camp DeWolfe’s Board of Managers and the Rev. Matthew Tees, Executive Director, during the Board of Managers Annual Retreat in Suffolk County.

As part of Jonathan’s Eagle Scout project, in November of 2022, Jonathan DiMarco and Boy Scout Troop 221 restored the Camp’s natural areas on the bluff and beach path down to the Long Island Sound, with new fencing, to help preserve the bluff and natural setting on the coastline of the North Shore of Long Island. Their conservation work has remained strong through the winter and into 2023. The Camp Board were grateful for the leadership development of Jonathan, who began serving at Camp DeWolfe as a seasonal staff member last summer, and the Troop who have demonstrated a care for creation and conservation of the natural bluffs on Long Island.
