About Bill and Bobbie Wadsworth

Born on March 25, 1916, Bill Wadsworth grew up in Fulton, New York. Bill attended Syracuse University, as a senior he served as president of Psi Upsilon Fraternity before graduating in 1938 from the Syracuse University Maxwell School of Citizenship and
Public Affairs. In 1940 at Tanager Lodge, a private coed camp in the Adirondacks, he met Bobbie, who also worked at the camp and attended the university. They married two years later and spent their honeymoon camping in the Adirondacks. Starting in the late 1940s as a field executive for the Onondaga Council based in Syracuse at Camp Woodland near Constantia and later at Camp Askenonta on Lake Placid in the Adirondack Wilderness Area, Bill Wadsworth organized extended canoeing and backpacking expeditions. In April 1960, Wadsworth joined the national executive staff as the assistant camping director and by January 1971, Wadsworth started serving as the national  director of high adventure programs, a position he held until his
retirement.

The Wadsworth Tribute Fund

The Bill and Bobbie Wadsworth Tribute Fund was developed to maintain our two camping properties, Camp Woodland and Sabattis Scout Reservation. Under the direction of the Council Investment Committee and Board of Directors, dollars contributed to this fund are invested with the interest going specifically to program development and maintenance costs each at property so that the council will be able to sustain these camps and scouts can continue to enjoy them.
