Seneca Waterways Council - Camp Babcock-Hovey - Scouts BSA

Camp Babcock-Hovey - Scouts BSA

Event Details

Babcock-Hovey operates a traditional Boy Scout summer camp every July and August. Scouts spend their days in various merit badge classes and afternoon programs: hiking ravine trails, building robots, sailing on the mighty Seneca Lake, swimming in the 100,000 gallon pool, shooting on the ranges, building survival shelters, and learning scout skills, while the evening brings more adventure and comradery around a campfire. The stellar staff will do everything possible to make your unit's experience unforgettable, adapting programs and facilities to suit the needs of all. 

Campers and leaders are housed in two-man canvas tents on wooden platforms or four-man wooden lean-tos. All meals are prepared by the food service staff and are served in the camp dining hall. Latrines are provided in each site, and centralized hot shower facilities are available for campers and leaders. The camp is fully handicap accessible.

The amazing and knowledgeable staff, facilities that cater to both the state-of-the-art and the rustic camper, and a program of incredible quality make Camp Babcock-Hovey the premier camp of the Finger Lakes!
