Schiff Scout Reservation (Camp Wauwepex)

Physical Address:
1606 Wading River Manor Rd
Wading River, NY 11792

Schiff Scout Reservation  is a 400 acre camp located in the Long Island Pine Barrens at Wading River.

In the summer the Deep Pond's pure sand bottom provides a great swimming waterfront. The property was called Camp Wauwepex until it was renamed for John M. Schiff. John M. Schiff's father, Mortimer L. Schiff was a member of the Council Executive Board and involved in the purchase of the camp property. 

He then later served as President of the Boy Scouts of America. The original Schiff Scout Reservation in Mendham N.J. was named in Mortimer L. Schiff's honor and served as the National Training Center of the Boy Scouts of America until the National Council moved to Texas. Our "Schiff" recently adopted the original Schiff Scout Reservation Logo for it's patch, mug and hat pin design. The camp surrounds the 30 acre "Deep Pond", which is a kettle hole famous for its Yellow Perch, Chain Pickerel and stocked Trout fishery.
