Summer Camp‎ > ‎

Onteora Scout Reservation

Located in the heart of the Catskill Mountains, the 1400-acre and 2000-foot altitude, Onteora Scout Reservation (or OSR) is affectionately referred to by those who have experienced the camp as "Land in the Sky."  Upon arrival at OSR, you will be met with a traditional greeting of "Welcome Home." 

Boy Scouts of different rank and age will have a wide variety of programs to choose from.  While OSR is rooted in tradition, its programs are developed with the needs of today's scouts and leaders in mind.  

The Theodore Roosevelt Council's priority is to provide a top notch resident camping experience at OSR supported by a well trained staff committed to exceptional customer service, great food, a variety of program and well maintained facilities.

Troop 71 will be attending OSR on July 17-23, 2016.

Below is the 2016 OSR summer camp information, which is also accessible through our Summer Camp website page.
  • Scouts need to figure out what merit badges they want to take months before so we can register them.
  • NOTE: Scouts are expected to stay the entire week of camping, unless they have received clearance ahead of time to leave early for exceptional circumstances.
  • SCOUTS MAY NOT HAVE SMARTPHONES AT SUMMER CAMP.  Leaders will have phones if Scouts need to call home or be reached.  Scouts will survive "off the grid" for a week. Any Scout violating this policy will have his device confiscated and may forfeit any advancement.
  • Scouts and adults attending camp must supply BSA health/medical forms Parts A, B & C PLUS the additional special forms for each camp.  Start at our Quick Tips page before submitting any health forms.
DEADLINES (earlier is appreciated):
Provide the above to the Scoutmaster in person or mail/dropoff (38 Marino Ave, PW, 11050)
