YMCA takes over Camp Rotary on Owasco Lake

Great news this week that Camp Rotary, the Boy Scout Camp on Owasco lake will remain accessible by young campers in Cayuga County. After several years of litigation, local interests negotiated the successful transfer of Camp Rotary to the Auburn YMCA. The camp will be added to the adjacent YMCA property in the Town of Niles.

This is an important property on Owasco Lake and keeping it as a camp, is a big win for the youth of Cayuga County and the future of Owasco Lake.

Thanks to the Owasco Camp Association and local leaders who have advocated for this important settlement with Boy Scouts of America Longhouse Council ( former Hiawatha Council).
