Family Camping

Massawepie Family Camping is one of the best kept secrets in the Adirondacks. Family camp consists of two one week sessions and one Labor Day weekend session where families can camp together at Massawepie Scout Camps in a tent, RV, cabin or lodge.

Enjoy the wilderness of Massawepie and the Adirondacks hiking, fishing, boating, swimming, nature watching or use Massawepie as a base camp for bigger adventures in the Adirondack park. 

Families can sign up for one or all of the sessions. 

Make Massawepie your end of summer get away; spaces fill fast so register early!

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
