SABATTIS ADVENTURE CAMP
Long Lake, NY
Sabattis Adventure Camp offers both a resident camp program where patrols are responsible for their own meals and an accredited high-adventure Adirondack Trek program with guided canoeing or hiking treks in Adirondack Park.
Sabattis is located in the heart of Adirondack Park, near Long Lake, N.Y., and covers more than 1,250 acres with a 250-acre lake surrounded by wilderness. The camp is 5 1/2 hours from New Jersey, and 50 miles from Lake Placid. Sabattis has been providing adventures to Boy Scouts and Venturers from all over the Northeast since 1957.
Our residential camp program offers Scouts a chance to have fun and work on merit badges, personal advancement and patrol/troop advancement. Our schedule is different from many traditional Boy Scout camps.
- Morning: Merit badges and advancement
- Afternoon: Choice of many fun programs
All meals at Sabattis are prepared in traditional patrol style on camp stoves or over open fires. Our camp commissary provides all of the food and meal preparation instructions. “No cook” options are available for breakfast and lunch. At every meal, patrol leader and senior patrol leader leadership skills are put to the test. Scouts learn so much from meal set-up, preparation, cooking and clean-up that on future adventures, their level of maturity and preparedness is markedly improved.
Large Secluded Campsites
The campsites provide an awe-inspiring location for your unit’s summer camp. Wake to the sounds of loons calling across the lake. Each campsite includes a water spigot, a latrine with a washstand, a flag pole, a bear-proof storage box, trailer parking and a bulletin board. Patrols are provided with a picnic table, dining fly, patrol box, 3 pans for dish washing and a burn barrel. Patrols provide tents, cooking gear and other desired equipment.
While at Sabattis, take advantage of the many activities we have to offer! Merit badges and open swimming, boating, canoeing, sailing, kayaks and fun-yaks. Other programs include the morning polar bear swim, BSA Lifeguard, Snorkeling BSA, Mile Swim BSA, Safe Swim Defense/Safety Afloat training and 29’ War Canoes.
Bob Rivers Fall trips are not available this summer.
