Camp Wakpominee is located in a secluded mountainous area of beautiful Washington County, New York near Vermont. Camp Wakpominee is over 100 years old and was founded in 1920. During the 1920s camp was held at various locations including a couple of the Lake George Islands. By 1931 the Mohican Council had acquired scout camp, Camp Washington, in the Washington County Town of Fort Ann. That location became the permanent home of Camp Wakpominee.
The Camp boasts 1000 acres of Adirondack Forest and beautiful Sly Pond is wholly on Camp Wakpominee property and is shared only with Scouting personnel and wildlife. The pond is over 40 acres and is home to several species of fish. The Chapel overlooks the pond in a picture-perfect setting. The camp has many well-kept buildings, trails, activity areas, 12 awesome campsites (tent and lean-to sites) and Gelder Hall (the dining hall) complete with a state-of-the-art kitchen. There are cabins with wood stoves to warm up to during the winter months. The Trading Post, two shower houses, a Training Center, Health Lodge, Nature Lodge, Handicraft Lodge, Scout Craft area, first aid and Safety pavilion, Rifle and shotgun and archery ranges help to provide numerous opportunities. ATVs are also available with proper training. The Camp Wakpominee waterfront is second to none. In addition to swimming there are rowboats, canoes, kayaks and sailboats. The Fishing Hut provides equipment for fishing in the well stock pond. The Council Ring provides a location for campfires, shows and ceremonies.
Camp Wakpominee provides fun and opportunity year-round.
