Winter Weekend at Camp Santanoni
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and their partners are holding three Camp Santanoni Winter Weekend open house events in 2018!
Events are scheduled during the Martin Luther King holiday weekend, January 13-15; President's Day holiday weekend, February 17-19; and the weekend of March 10-11. Cross-country skiers and snowshoers will have access to the historic camp properties located in the town of Newcomb, Essex County, to rest, tour the buildings, and view interpretative displays.
A 9.8-mile round trip cross-country ski or snowshoe excursion traverses from Camp Santanoni's Gate Lodge complex to the remote lakeside main lodge complex. The trip provides a moderate physical activity and a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors.
In addition to the popular 9.8-mile round trip from the Gate Lodge to the Main Lodge, cross-country skiers and snowshoers are encouraged to take the half mile-trail that connects Camp Santanoni to the nearby Adirondack Interpretive Center's 3.6-mile trail system. The center's buildings will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the Winter Weekend events.
Reservations are not required. Contact AARCH at 518-834-9328 for more information on the winter weekends.
