We are sorry about that late notice… We had a different event planned for this weekend but that has fallen through at this point in time. Instead we’re having an Alumni Weekend July 8-10, and you can register now! Whether it’s been 60 seconds or 60 years since you were last in camp, we’d love to see you again. (And in case you haven’t seen yet, the times when we can freely gather at Hovey are coming to an end…)

Annual Camp Babcock-Hovey Alumni Weekend 2022

What: A time for friendship, comradery, and saying “so long”
When: Friday, July 8 – Sunday, July 10
Where: Home, aka 7292 County Road 132, Ovid, NY
How Much: For current BH Alumni Association members & families, it’s free! For everyone else, $20 (the cost of an annual BHAA membership) covers your food (Sat Breakfast/Lunch) & use of camp for the weekend. If you’re not sure if you’re up on dues or not, show up anyway and we’ll sort it out. We typically figure out Saturday Dinner and Sunday Breakfast based on who is staying in camp.

NOTE: Please bring any pictures/memorabilia you may have. We will have a volunteer scanning these items in for you all weekend.

r next big event is the Babcock-Hovey Alumni Association Annual meeting on June 12, 2021. What an opportunity to join your fellow Alumni Members to renew friendships and rehash those good times you had at camp. This is also your opportunity to tour camp and review the improvements that have been accomplished as the result of your Alumni Association funds. And guess what? You are going to receive another free lunch. Bring your family and camp for the weekend for free Friday and/or Saturday evening. Right after lunch the annual Babcock-Hovey Alumni Association business meeting will be held to review the past year activities, plan for the upcoming year and elect the Babcock-Hovey Alumni Association Executive Committee.

In addition, we will also be honoring the newest members of the 50 Year Club at Camp. They are Dave Bush and George Payne. Please plan to attend so we can recognize these Scouters who have attained this milestone. Please let Matt Crance know by June 10th if you will be there so we can make sure we prepare sufficient food for lunch.

    Great job of putting this all together. Hope we can get more photos and names One correction—the staff photo is from 1969 not 1968. The staff for 1970 ( no photo available ) is almost exactly the same as 1969.

        Hi guys! Remember me?? Karl, who worked on the waterfront one year with Gar Ressing, than as assistant cook for 3 years to earn more money. I went back to BH last year with Terry Keller (big guy) from my kitchen days – they were still using the same pots!!

    I always looked forward to summer camp. I was a Scout first in troop 57, then in troop 52 in the 60’s. Then in the 70’s I was an Explorer Scout in the early 70’s. Spending time at Babcock Hovey was heaven to me as a young kid. I took every chance to be there, saved my money so that I could go every chance I got to. Winter camp at BH was great, too. Wish I had all the photos I took there of my friends, but they were lost in the many moves my job took me to. Hope the place lasts forever so other kids can enjoy it as I did.
