Camp Aquehonga / TMR

Located in Narrowsburg, NY, 135 miles northwest of New York City,
Camp Aquehonga (or AQ) is part of the Ten Mile River (TMR) Scout Camp ComplexOver 12,000 majestic acres provide a unique camping and wilderness experience for the Scouts. Mountain biking, cliff rappelling, boating on Half Moon Lake and swimming in an Olympic size pool with a three-story slide are just some of the activities here. Troop 71 makes its home at Campsite 10 across from the sports field. Scouts practice patrol cooking at Camp Aquehonga, as there is no dining hall, or enjoy pre-cooked dinner served out of "heater stacks".  And check out some great history below!
