Walking on uneven dirt roads, trail walking, water activities require appropriate footwear. Have insect repellent readily available. Afternoon water activities are weather dependent, and alternative activities are planned if weather prohibits us from being in the water.
All breakfasts are served at 8:00 am in the Vanderbilt dining hall, with lovely views of the sun rising over the mountains of the Blue Ridge Wilderness. Breakfast choices typically include selections such as: one hot entry, like pancakes, scrambled eggs, french toast; hot & cold cereal & milk; and several juices. Coffee, tea, and very pure Sagamore water are always available to guests.
We start each morning with an optional Nature Walk at 6:30 am! After breakfast, get to know the grounds with an historical tour of Great Camp Sagamore. Learn about the herbs and edible plants in our yards as we walk to the Upper Complex to begin our tour of the grounds.
Lunch in the Sagamore dining hall. Lunches typically include selections such as sandwich meats, cheeses, breads and condiments; a hot entree like macaroni & cheese or soup; various salads, like cole slaw or potato salad; and a variety of fresh fruits. Milk, coffee, tea, and Sagamore water are always available for meals.
Our afternoon will be filled with water activities and games by the waterfront. Learn how to canoe, play in the swimming area, or learn some new lawn games. Guests also can lounge in our comfortable Adirondack chairs and read a book, or watch the activities!

Our evening activity will be a Campfire at the historic Wigwam Lean-to, with songs and stories. These programs are family oriented, and parents, grandparents, and kids can come prepared with a favorite song or story to add to our gathering!
