Water is available for refills (See Camp Ranger for water point access). This is a pack in and pack out camping experience. Violations will result in loss of future reservations for your Unit or group. Sabattis Scout Reservation is considered “Back-Country Camping” and therefore not authorized for Cub Scout Camping.

Cut Firewood is not available at camp. We encourage you to collect and burn downed (cutting down trees is prohibited) wood around your campsite which helps keep sites neat and tidy. If you bring your own firewood, NYS DEC firewood transportation rules are in effect.

Refund and Cancellation Policy:

Each unit is responsible for all camp fees based on the headcount of their final roster, which must be submitted by May 1st. Until a unit’s attendance at camp during their reserved week, any boy or adult can be replaced on that troop’s final roster with another boy or adult, as appropriate, because each fee paid is transferrable but not refundable. Any youth reservation paid or non-paid, that does not attend camp will be charged the $150.00 non-refundable camp fee if they are not replaced on the roster. An additional youth attendee must replace the reserved spot.

After May 1st a boy may cancel his reservation and receive a refund provided that at least one of the following conditions have been met:

  • Summer school attendance – a letter from the school stating that the boy has to attend summer school must be submitted.
  • Death in the family – a note from the parents is sufficient.
  • Medical – a letter from the doctor stating that the Scout’s medical condition prohibits participation at camp

Any other reasons are considered and subject to the review of the Council Program Director.

The unit should notify the council camping department as soon as it is known that attendance for the unit will be lower than expected and a written request for a refund must be submitted to the Council office within one week after the unit’s departure from camp.

If your troop or crew decides to leave camp for any reason or you are asked to leave camp for any reason there will be no refund.

High adventure treks – Failure to pass the blue-tag swimming test will forfeit your place on the trek and no refunds will be issued for the individual or the entire trek. These reserved slots may, however, be converted to provisional in-camp attendance at no additional cost. Two-deep leadership must be maintained; therefore the entire trek will be converted to an in camp experience if adequate leaders do not meet the requirements to participate in an extended trek upon check-in.
