Prepared for Life

Camping Reminder – October 4, 5, 6

Santanoni Great Camp

Great Camp Santanoni

Troop 36 will be camping on October 4, 5, 6 in Newcomb, NY in the Adirondack Park. We will be sleeping in tents at a private camp. There are outdoor latrine facilities. We will be hiking to the nearby Great Camp Santanoni. The cost for the camping trip is $15 per person. It promises to be a great fall camping and hiking experience.

The Santanoni Preserve is the largest tract of land donated to the Adirondack Preserve in the last decade. The 12,500 acre preserve is home to the Santanoni Lodge built from 1892-93, owned at that time by Robert C. Pruyn, a prominent Albany banker and businessman. “As one of the earliest examples of the Adirondack Great Camps, Camp Santanoni was regarded at the time of its completion as the grandest of all such Adirondack Camps to date”. Information and pictures of the Great Camp can be found at http://www.newcombny.com/newsantanonigreatcamp.html

Please bring your camping equipment to the meeting next week on October 2. We will be loading the trailer in preparation for Friday’s departure.
