The Shenandoah Shelter, a multi-purpose building at. Camp Babcock-Hovey was dedicated at a 3 p.m. ceremony on Saturday May 3rd 1980, as part of the Shenandoah District Camporee program.
Tom Lewis, Shenandoah District camping chairman, served as the master of ceremonies for the event, which honored those persons and corporations whose donations made the construction of the shelter possible.
More than $8,200 was raised for the shelter at the Shenandoah District Bowl-A-Thon in 1979. The building was raised during the spring of 1979, and was used for teaching classes in inclement weather during the 1979 camping season. The shelter was also available for large-group meetings and picnics during the summer camping season, and for winter camping. The shelter was dedicated in honor and memory of the Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and their leaders from the Shenandoah District of the Finger Lakes Council, Boy Scouts of America.
At some point in the late 1980’s Shenandoah Shelter became the camp Trading Post.
