Fishing

All we have to say is two words: Lake Ohrbach. This lake is unique to Pouch. Fish range from Large Mouth Bass to Sunnies. The fishing area offers docks and equipment your unit can check out and use. Note: all over the age of 16 must have a NYS fishing license. (We are Region 2) Please observe the posted non-fishing areas throughout camp.

 

Climbing

 

Rock climbing is a great activity for people of all ages, from children to seniors. Rock climbing is a great alternative for your traditional weekend program. It uniquely provides a full body workout from the major muscle groups, such as chest and back, to smaller muscles such as forearms and even your hands. You also get the added benefits of improved flexibility and balance. In addition, climbing provides a mental challenge – as you climb specific routes you’re strengthening your mind by using logic, spatial awareness and problem solving skills. Don’t forget, the most important aspect of climbing is how much fun it is!! Reservations need to made in advance. Please contact the office (718) 351-1905 for more details and requirements for the climb.
