Curtis S. Read Memorial Scout Camp opened on the shores of Long Pond, near Lake Mahopac in Putnam County, in 1920. The camp’s capacity was 50 boys, and was supervised by S.P. Hines, the local Scout Executive. Camp Read would later move to Camp Waubeeka in Copake, NY, and Siwanoy in Wingdale, NY, before finding a permanent home in the Adirondacks in 1949. A Girl Scout camp Known as Rock Hill Camp opened in its place later on.

Still open under the current Westchester Putnam Council, pictured below is a pocket patch issued by then Washington Irving Council.
