The Massawepie Scout Camps opened in 1952.   The Camps are located in the southeast corner of


St. Lawrence County, NY, within the 110 square mile Town of Piercefield.   Also within the Town,


and close to the Camp, are the hamlets of Childwold, Gale & Piercefield.   For the first two years a


limited postal service was provided at Childwold.   Starting in 1954, service was provided by the


Tupper Lake, NY post office in Franklin County, 13 miles east of the Camp.   The Massawepie Rural


Station PO itself was within the Camp boundaries & on Camp property.
