Programs: The Francis J. Barre Counselor of the Year

The Francis J. Barre Counselor of the Year is given annually to an outstanding member of the Counselor in Training, (CIT), Program at Wah-Tut-Ca Scout Reservation. This Award includes a cash award as a "signing bonus" when the CIT becomes a regular member of the reservation staff. The purpose of this award is to inspire excellence and encourage the development of the reservation staff.

This recognition is given in honor of Francis J. Barre, Eagle Scout, Vigil Honor Member, Camp Director and BSA career professional. Frank served in several Scout Councils and many Scout Camps. Upon his retirement his friends and brothers in the Yankee Clipper Council BSA established this program with the Key Foundation to honor his vast achievements in the development of the BSA's summer camping programs. For Wah-Tut-Ca and Lone Tree, Frank is a valued resource and mentor to many who lead the Yankee Clipper Council's camping programs. Today Frank serves as the Chairman of the Board of The Key Foundation Inc.
