Seneca Waterways Council - Camp Babcock-Hovey - Boy Scout Resident Camp

Camp Babcock-Hovey - Boy Scout Resident Camp

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. In addition to traditional scout camp, Hovey offers Eagle Flight Week for older scouts and Expedition Camp Week for scouts and other youth with special interest in a particular program.

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 knowledgable 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!

Note: All individuals over the age of 18 attending summer camp must be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America and have a valid Youth Protection Training certificate. For more information on this National Council mandate please visit: Camp Youth Protection and Registration Requirement
