Sabattis Treks: 5 One-Week Treks for Troops & Individuals

Sabattis Adventure Camp also offers a full-service trek program. All of our treks are approved under the strict regulations of the New York State Health Department, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, and the Boy Scouts of America. We follow the Outdoor Code and Leave No Trace to ensure a trek that will be both educational and fun.

Your group is provided with food, permits, transportation from starting and finishing points, Kevlar canoes, paddles, most group equipment, and a hot shower at the end of your trek! A Sabattis trek is less than a quarter of the cost of a Philmont or Northern Tier trek.

Trekkers are welcome to take part in Sunday and Friday camp activities at Sabattis Adventure Camp including opening and closing campfires, Sunday barbecue, Friday afternoon field day or water carnival, and shooting programs when you return from your trek (14+). (Programs are not available during week 5 treks when summer camp is closed. Instead, enjoy the quiet solitude of the Adirondacks.)

Base camp includes patrol box, wall tents with platforms, dining fly, cots and cooking gear. Let us know in advance if you need base camp cooking gear. Shower house is available.
