James “Marmaduke” Seton Trek Center

The James “Marmaduke” Seton Trek Center, located at Sabattis Scout Reservation, offers true high adventure opportunities. We are ready to fully equip your canoe or backpacking trip with canoes, tents, PFD’s, food, guides, and stoves/fuel. If high adventure is calling your older Scouts, let them answer it at the Seton Trek Center.

Program Opportunities at Sabattis

Quality Merit Badge Programming is only one small part of the Sabattis Scout Reservation experience. We also offer a number of Outpost Programming opportunities. During your stay at our camp, take a canoe trip down Low’s Lake to Hitchen’s Pond, climb the breathtaking Graves Mountain, Low’s Ridge or Lookout Mountain or load your entire troop into our canoes for an afternoon and evening of fun and excitement on any of our three islands on Low’s Lake for an overnight your troop or crew won’t soon forget.

Sabattis has its own fleet of mountain bikes, our popular Challenge Valley where you’ll work on team building and get DIRTY, and loads of opportunities for your troop or crew to design their own programs for your week at camp. And, there’s a whole lot more! These programs are of interest to your younger and older Scouts alike. Don’t miss out on these incredible programs which are often the highlights of a Scout’s stay in camp!

Sabattis Gold Adventure

Whether you’re a new Scout in a Troop or a veteran camper, the Sabattis Gold Adventure has a program for you! This all-inclusive, provisional program allows an individual Scout the opportunity to spend a week at Sabattis Scout Reservation under volunteer leadership from across the council and complete a program in basic Scout skills (with some Adirondack magic for good measure), or experience the backcountry wilderness like never before!

The Program

Sabattis Gold Adventure is designed with three different paths (or "tracks") in mind to accommodate all types of Scout campers. Each program will be delivered by a group of dedicated adult volunteers supplemented by Sabattis Scout Reservation staff. Participants will camp together in a provisional Troop and need not attend with any others from their Troop to participate!

  • Scouts brand new to Scouting or 12 and younger can sign up for the Trail Blazer Program. Trailblazers is the first year camper program. It offers opportunities for Scouts working on ranks up through first class. The program gives Scouts a feel for camp and how it operates and builds in them the enthusiasm to fuel their advancement.
  • Scouts 13 and older can sign up for the Abenaki’s Edge program and experience some High Adventure. The perfect adventure for any older Scout or crew member ready to take their merit badge knowledge and experience out into the world of High Adventure.
  • Scouts that are 13 years old and First Class can sign up for the Trail to Eagle program. Work with merit badge counselors that are comprised of professionals who volunteer to instruct the Eagle required merit badges. Plus a special presentation on how to select, plan, and complete your Eagle Service Project.
