Located in the Adirondack Park of Upstate New York, Sabattis Scout Reservation offers a summer program “to Remember” – far away from city lights and noises. At Sabattis Scout Reservation and the James “Marmaduke” Seton Trek Center, we offer so many program opportunities that your Scouts won’t be able to do everything during their stay!
Sabattis Scout Reservation
Named after Mitchell Sabattis, the Sabattis Scout Camp is located on over 2,000 acres in the heart of the Adirondack Park. It offers the premier wilderness camping experience in the northeast United States. Sabattis is a traditional full featured patrol cooking camp with immediate access to 1,000,000+ acres of state land for hiking and canoeing. An aerial view of the camp near the bottom of the camp history shows the camp area.
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 Marmaduke Trek Center.

Week 1: July 3rd – July 9th
Week 2: July 10th – July 16th

For Scout Leaders:
Quality merit badge programming is only one small part of the Sabattis Scout Camp 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!
