Homer Junior High and OCM BOCES Programs Under New Leadership

One of the most interesting partnerships at Camp Huntington over the years is the joint program between the Homer Junior High School science club and the New Visions Program offered by the Onondaga-Cortland-Madison BOCES (OCM). Although the groups differ in age and purpose, they share an interest in coming to a better understanding of the natural world through discovery at Raquette Lake...

From the Director's Desk

As I write this edition of the Raquette Lake News, I have my window open to a warm, breezy March day with absolutely no ice on the lake. This is the first March ice-out I have witnessed and the first in many years for longtime residents. We are all wondering, “What is happening to our winters?” Of course, we don’t have to look too far back to see much colder temperatures...

Softball Team Prepares for the Season

On Valentine’s Day weekend, 23 women on the SUNY Cortland softball team braved the cold temperatures and slick ice road to come together at Camp Huntington for a preseason team-building program...

Camp Abilities Returns Bigger and Better

The second annual Camp Abilities sponsored by the Central Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CABVI) kicked off with the campers and counselors following an illuminated ice road into camp at sunset on Thursday, Feb. 18. With almost every camper from last year coming back and many more wanting to sign up, Camp Huntington was filled to capacity...

Foundation Funds Provide Support in Many Ways

Over the past academic year, over 400 SUNY Cortland students received financial support for part or all of the cost to attend academic and co-curricular programs at Raquette Lake. Of this number, there were 15 programs who were granted free transportation from Cortland, admission to local museums, speaker fees, ropes course facilitation, supplies and other forms of support...

Wilderness First Aid Course Moved to Campus

The first course on the books this January was Wilderness First Aid (WFA), a two-day residential program for instructors working with groups in the backcountry. Many of our summer program instructors maintain this first aid certification, and it is offered in alternate years opposite our longer Wilderness First Responder course...

M. Louise Moseley Leaves a Lasting Impact

SUNY Cortland lost a true champion for women’s athletics and persons with disabilities, when she passed away at age 91 on Dec. 28 in Gaffney, S.C. A member of the physical education faculty from 1962 to 1985, Moseley helped advocate for women’s sports in the pre-Title IX era, serving as the College’s Director of Women’s Athletics...

Nature Nook

The winter had its fair share of dramatic weather swings and minimal snow creating a good recipe for pressure ridges to erupt in the ice around the lake. A few different ridges crossed Raquette Lake this February and March altering our activities and traffic patterns a bit...
