Onteroa Scout Reservation

Located in the heart of the Catskill Mountains, the 1400-acre and 2000-foot altitude, Onteora Scout Reservation 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 during its summer camp season.  While OSR is rooted in tradition, its programs are developed with the needs of today's Scouts and leaders in mind.  Outside of summer camp season, Onteora is available for campsite rental.


When: Saturday 5/18/19 to Sunday 5/19/19 (or arrive Friday 5/17 after 7 pm).  This trip not only provides Scouts with at least one camping night, it also presents an opportunity for Community Service with a conservation component, as we will be helping our Council clear the trails in preparation for the summer.  So, this is a great chance to get camping and community service/conservation credit.

Cost: $20 per person, due 5/9/19 (checks payable "BSA Troop 71") with permission slip for Scouts AND adults.

Leader: SM Bernic 516-655-1744

Activities: Hiking, Community Service/Conservation (trail clearing)


Campers are permitted and encouraged to arrive on Friday night 5/17, otherwise we will meet at the usual parking lot across from the Plandome Country Club at 6:00 am on Saturday 5/18.  We will return to Manhasset midday Sunday 5/19.


Saturday arrival campers should eat breakfast on their own, but all other meals will be provided at camp.  

What to Bring:

Treat this as a regular camping trip, but cars will a 10-minute walk away. (We will monitor the weather up to our departure for last minute updates.)  Bathroom/shower facilities are readily available.
