Camp Scully is located on Snyder’s Lake in North Greenbush within Rensselaer County, approximately 10 miles from Albany and Troy in New York. In addition to boating and swimming activities, Snyder's Lake is an ideal habitat to see (and hear) a diverse mix of bird species including Great Blue Herons, Common Merganser, Sandpipers and a couple of recently sighted Bald Eagles.
