Ten Mile River: Weekend Camping
It is required that all units camping with GNYC submit a roster upon arrival:
TMR is not only a spectacular place for long-term summer camping, but it is also home to over 30 facilities for units to hold their monthly camping trips, or scouting families to have a weekend getaway. Short Term facilities are available from Labor Day in September until the end of June. The Delaware River sites are also available on weekends in the summer months. Among the many facilities at TMR are:
Fully Winterized Cabins: with electricity, bathrooms & kitchens
Leanto Sites: 3 to 9 leantos per site, some located on the Delaware
Tent Sites: some of which are located right on the Delaware River
Family Cabins: 4 to 5 person cabins on Turnpike Pond and Lake Nianque
Weekend check-in takes place at the Headquarters Trading Post, located at 1481 Crystal Lake Road (County Route 26).
Ten Mile River Scout Camps are plowed when the situation arises, but access in winter weather conditions is better suited to four wheel drive vehicles. A local towing service can be contacted if vehicles become stuck or damaged. River Sites are on town road that closes on November 15th and reopens on April 15th.
For program or Checkin questions please call (845) 235-4149. Please leave a message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.

Outdoor adventure is the promise made to boys when they join Scouting. In the outdoors, boys have opportunities to acquire skills that make them more self-reliant. They can explore canoe and hiking trails and complete challenges they first thought were beyond their ability. Attributes of good character become part of a boy as he learns to cooperate to meet outdoor challenges that may include extreme weather, difficult trails and portages, and dealing with nature's unexpected circumstances.
Organized camping is a creative, educational experience in cooperative group living in the outdoors. It uses the natural surroundings to contribute significantly to physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth.
Camping contributes to good health.
Camping helps campers develop self-reliance and resourcefulness.
