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 10,000 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!

Troop 71 will be attending Camp Aquehonga on July 31 - August 6, 2016.


Below is the 2016 AQ 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.
