We are finalizing the attendee list - if you are interested, contact the organizer (Christian) directly.
Do you want to feel like a Vanderbilt? Come for a week end at Great Camp Sagamore, the wilderness estate of the Vanderbilt Family from 1901 to 1954.
Where is it located? In the Adirondaks, 2h1/2 north of Albany.

In free time enjoy canoeing Sagamore Lake, hiking 20 miles of trails, playing lawn games, sitting at a campfire. Porch sitting is also a time-honored activity. Evening include a traditional campfire at the lean-to. Take time for star-gazing.
Great Camp Sagamore is one of the very few original camp where you can stay (unless you know someone who has one, or can stay at The Point ... in that case we need to talk!).
Price includes two nights double occupancy lodging, as well as meals (buffet style in the dining hall - beer and wine are availble for purchase). Many dates available. Private baths are available for an additional charge. $299/person/2 nights.
To make it happen, we will need to combine the following:
- Departure on Friday during the morning - return on Sunday night.
- Double occupancy for cost indicated.
- Cost does not include extra activity such as ADK Museum (highly recommended) or transportation.
- Car pooling / Drivers / Cars to keep cost low.
It's a lot of conditions, and not cheap but Sagamore location is just unique. Contact me with any question, or if you have interest.
If we answer quickly we can all be in the same building.
