During the weekend of August 4th through 6th ,2017 four operators transmitted Live from the Camp Aquehonga Midway during the TMR90 Celebration, GNYC members and life-long TMR Alums KB2FMH,  W2EVJ and KA1CI, along with special guest operator / logistics coordinator KC2EKE will activate SES-W2T, a Special Call Celebration Station operating to celebrate 90 years of Scout Camping in New York City.

 

Ten Mile River is the largest camp in the GNYC (Greater New York Councils) Camping properties and is one of the biggest, oldest continually operated Boy Scout Camps in the United States. At one time covering almost 14,000 acres in the mountains of Upstate NY, it offers Scouts magnificent views of NY State and Pennsylvania, beautiful lakes, streams and rivers, Spectacular scenic hiking trails and High Adventure programs rivaling those found at Northern Tier, Summit Bechtel and Philmont.

Founded in 1927 with support from soon to be Governor and our 32nd President (for 4 terms),  Franklin D. Roosevelt, NYS Judge Frederic Kernochan and other influential men of the time, it was soon teeming with Scouts from the Greater New York area. Many changes have taken place over the last 90 years and will continue as we press towards the next 90. Please learn more of the camp's history and "Do Your Best" to visit us on the air during the anniversary weekend or come to camp and sit at the mic for a while. It will be a monumental event all will want to be a part of.
