We’re located 15 minutes northeast of Oneonta and just 20 minutes south of historic Cooperstown. We have 10 campsites, a modern dining hall and kitchen facility (newly renovated), a camp store, health lodge, and chapel, along with permanent buildings in most of our program areas.

Health and accident insurance is provided for all boys attending camp.  The plan is an Excess Insurance Plan meaning that the plan will pay all those eligible expenses incurred from a covered accident or sickness not paid by any other collectible insurance or pre-paid health plan in-force for you or dependent child(ren).

If no other collectible insurance or pre-paid health plans are in effect at the time of the loss, this plan will pay all eligible covered expenses up to the plan limits.  There is no deductible under this plan.  Please be sure to indicate on your son’s health and medical record if there is another insurance policy in effect.

Copies of our camp’s inspections are on file at the Council Service Center and at the Oneonta office of the NYS Department of Health.
