Akridge Scout Reservation

Akridge Scout Reservation is located on 85 acres of the former Kesselring family farm. The camp features 9 campsites as well as 3 pavilions, an outdoor arena, and a covered 32-position archery range. The new Scout camp is bordered by two county parks, an elementary school, and many suburban neighborhoods. The Kesselring family wished for their family's legacy of caring for the earth to continue and take on a new form as an open recreation space. The property is in Kent County just south of the city of Dover and north of the Town of Wyoming. The centerpiece of the property is an 8 acre man-made lake. The lake boasts a 1000-seat covered outdoor arena, boat dock, and an island. The property will also be the home to the Council Volunteer Service Center serving the entire Delmarva Peninsula. 

Community Victory Gardens - started in 2020 in response to the Coronavirus crisis to help families become more food independent. A video guide to gardening tips and techniques and links to more information!
