About Us


What is Onteora Scout Reservation (OSR)?

Located in the heart of the Catskill Mountains, Onteora Scout Reservation is affectionately referred to by those who have experienced the camp as the "Land in the Sky." When you arrive at OSR, your unit will be met with a traditional greeting of "Welcome Home."

Scouts of different rank and age will have a wide variety of programs to choose from. While Onteora is a camp rooted in tradition its programs are developed with the needs of today's Scouts and leaders in mind.

The Theodore Roosevelt Council's priority is to provide a top notch resident camping experience at Onteora Scout Reservation supported by a well trained staff committed to exceptional customer service, great food, a variety of program, and well maintained facilities.


The History

"Besides being a great place to camp, Onteora has a lot to offer to the amateur historian. [You will be] fascinated to find the remnants of sawmills, villages, ancient toll roads, quarries and more." Click Here for more detailed information.
