Great Camp Sagamore is open for the 2021 summer and fall season, with many exciting programs and workshops lined up. The season got off to a lively start in mid-June with the Roots & Branches Endowed Music Workshop and Women’s Fly Fishing. Offering nearly two dozen arts, educational and outdoors-themed getaways with lodging and meals included, Great Camp Sagamore has something for everyone.

    Personally, I think this is great news! I hate that I have to worry about how long it will be before a certain ideological group says it was based in racism and burns it…either literally or figuratively.

      Too bad that you just don’t get what Sagamore is about now. Here is the current mission statement for Great Camp Sagamore:

      “Great Camp Sagamore is a National Historic Landmark in the Adirondack Wilderness. The Sagamore Institute uses the power and beauty of its location and the quality of its programs to foster understanding, care, and respect for nature, people and their critical interdependence. Our success is measured in our ability to inspire in those who visit or stay, individual responsibility to nature and community.”
