Massawepie Camps issued its first patch in 1953(? it is undated, can anyone confirm the issue date?) during this time it was part of Otetiana Council. Now it is part of Seneca Waterways Council which describes the camp as

Located on a 3,769 acre parcel in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York State, Massawepie Scout Camps combine unique wilderness programs with a traditional Boy Scout summer camp.

Canoe, kayak, or sail on our gorgeous mile-long private lake, hike over 20 miles of well-kept trails, and camp along eight ecologically diverse ponds — all without ever leaving camp property. Massawepie’s location is perfect for programs like mountain biking, outpost camping, and high-adventure experiences for older scouts and Venture Crews. Our highly trained Voyager guides can lead your unit on a 3- or 6-day trek through the Adirondack wilderness — by foot, canoe, or bike — as either an independent trip or an extension of your week of Camp.
