“Thank you for opening up your cabin to us. The view is beautiful in the morning and the kayaks are wonderful. I love the decor of your home and the open windows. The town is also very cute and welcoming. Hope to be back one day soon! Thank you!”
St. Alphonsus Catholic Church at 48 Wawbeek Ave. Sunday mass at 11am.
Holy Name Church at 114 Main St. Sunday mass at 9am. This mass is a little shorter than the one at St. Alphonsus. I grew up attending St. Alphonsus, but we go to Holy Name with the kids. They have books and coloring pages to keep them busy.
St. Thomas Episcopal Church at 8 Brentwood Ave. Sunday worship at 10am.
United Community Church at 23 High St. Sunday worship celebration at 10am.
Tupper Lake Baptist Chapel at corner of Lake and Miller St. Sunday worship at 10am.
Tupper Lake Christian Center at 114 Park St. Non-denominational. Sunday services at 10am.
I’m often asked where the best place to order pizza in Tupper Lake is. We like to do pizza and a movie on Friday nights with the kids and we all love the buffalo chicken pizza and garlic knots from Little Italy at 146 Park St. Call 518-359-7177 before you leave the Camp and they’ll have it ready by the time you get there. They’re closed Mondays. Make sure to bring cash or your ATM card (they have an ATM), as they don’t take credit cards. They also have good pasta dishes, sandwiches, etc.
“Thank you for creating such a cozy, warm home to enjoy! We have called it our “new house” all week and now the kids don’t want to leave and when we say “let’s go home,” they correct us and say “No! To our new house.” So all the fun we had out and about and here (home) as a family will be missed by all of us as we head home. We just about did everything we could in a 40 mile radius–tobogganing, tubing, downhill skiing, XC skiing, snowshoeing, the Wild Center, even sledding in the back yard. We would love to visit in the summer months to have fun on the lake! Our boys will miss all the new toys they got to play with, as we will miss how entertained they were by it all! Thanks again!”
It’s slowly starting to warm up and my thoughts are turning to yummy desserts made over the fire in the back yard of the Camp. Here are some favorites (I’ll assume you already know how to make basic S’mores!):
- Strawberries dipped in marshmallow fluff, then roasted over the campfire
- Mini Rolos pushed through a marshmallow and roasted over the campfire
- Marshmallows alternated with blackberries on a skewer and roasted over the campfire
- Strawberry Shortcake: sliced strawberries + roasted marshmallow + shortbread cookies
- Caramel Apple: thinly sliced apple + caramel sauce + roasted marshmallow + gingersnap cookies
- Make a regular S’more, but use dark chocolate and spread raspberry jam on the graham crackers
- Make a regular S’more, but use peanut butter cups instead of regular chocolate
Winter is on its way out and Spring is starting to spring. We have begun Spring renovation projects and are excited to share some fun upgrades for summer-more details soon, but spoiler alert, it includes adult kayaks this year to match the kid’s kayaks.
The Wild Center has tapped our trees for sap and we’re hoping you’ll get to taste some super local maple syrup on your next visit to the museum.
One last snowshoe trip with the kids, dogs and the giant toboggan (mainly so we could snoop on the Ninja Turtles filming going on at Big Tupper!).
