“Philmont of the Northeast”

While lots of places offer great trek programs, there just is not another property as beautiful, varied, and magical as the 12,600 acres that make up the Ten Mile River Scout Reservation and our famous Red Dot Trail. Traverse the many creeks, discover hidden valleys, and admire the mighty Delaware River and iconic Indian Cliffs as you make your way through our property.
Consider encouraging your older scout patrol to take on this adventure. They can choose between the activity intensive High Adventure Trek or the hiking intensive 50 Miler Trek.

Day Hikes and Overnights:
Your unit isn’t quite ready to sign up for a full week of trek? That’s ok! Get a taste of the experience with our new Day Hike and Overnights program!

Day Hikes: Spend a morning or afternoon hiking to a beautiful place on the reservation.
Overnight: No need for your Scouts to miss a single badge! Leave your base camp after dinner to hike to an iconic TMR location, spend the night in a lean-to site, and return for breakfast at camp in the morning! Both are offered at each TMR Camp!

· Canoeing or Kayaking on the Delaware (See below for additional fees)

 

Treks can plan for the 50 Miler award in any combination of hiking and boating down the scenic Delaware River.  There is an additional charge of $30.00 per person per day for canoe and $32.00 per person per day for Kayaks that includes boats, paddles, PFD’s and transportation to and from the riverside.

Food is provided so that your group can cook on the trail at your own pace.  Our friendly staff will check you in as you reach each outpost along your designated trek and provide program support for your selected activity.

Two leaders are required for each Trek and free leaders are tabulated according to the Free Leader table.  We look forward to meeting you on the trail at Ten Mile River Scout Camps this summer!

Adult Supervision
All of our treks are provisional based, meaning we provide the staff and leadership. You can send a handful of
your Scouts ages 13+ on a Trek while the rest of your unit stays in camp. Of course, if you want to send adults along with them, we love that! In fact, any adult who attends a full week trek will automatically become a free adult*!
*free adult is in addition to the unit’s free adult ratio- however, remember they will not count for the unit’s in-camp Youth Protection ratio).
