Camp Ramapo new buildings, wetlands permit under review

Camp Ramapo for Children, a summer camp on Ramapo Road off Salisbury Turnpike, has turned in its application for a wetlands permit and site approval for the construction of two buildings on the property.

The Rhinebeck Planning Board at its May 6 meeting voted to accept the applications for the two buildings: a 6,240 square-foot staff residential building for seasonal counselors and year-round workers and a 4,375 square-foot multi-use building intended for recreational purposes like indoor games and activities. In addition, associated site improvements include year-round plumbing, new septic tanks and an increase in driveway width by 20 feet for emergency service access.

The Site plan permit for the construction of the facilities within the Anchorage area of the 250-acre camp property and the wetlands permit will be up for combined review at a public hearing on June 3 at 6:45pm at Rhinebeck Town Hall.

Correction: in our May 22 issue, we stated that Camp Ramapo had received approvals for two new buildings and a wetland permit. In fact, the planning board voted to accept applications for the buildings and permit, not approve them.
