Welcome to the Town of Northampton website. This site enables people to find out about what is happening in and around town.
Located in Fulton County in Upstate New York, along the Great Sacandaga Lake, you can find lots to do -- whether it's boating, fishing, hiking, swimming, camping, or nearby cross country skiing. For avid hikers, the Adirondack Trail runs through the Town of Northampton. We have one of New York State's finest State Park Campgrounds. We also offer a summer program for kids and youth groups at our local churches. Winter time is full of snowmobiling, ice fishing, ice races on the lake, and many other fun activites. The Town of Northampton is truly an all-season place to have fun or just to relax and get away from it all.
We are easy to find. Just take NYS Route 30 North off the New York State Thruway and follow the signs.
It is with regret that the Northville-Northampton Joint Youth Commission announces that the annual summer program will not be held this year. Additionally, the Northville beach will be closed. This decision is made for the safety and health of our campers, employees, and the public in general as a result of the pandemic.
Northampton Councilman Bill Gritsavage, Chairman of the Commission, stated that, “While it comes as no surprise, it was difficult for us to resort to this action. This is the first time that the program was not available for the kids. We are grateful to our Director, Ken Adamczyk, and the employees of the Village and Town who have been working diligently to try to put together programming for the kids and the public.”
The program traditionally handles about 100 campers a year from not just Northville and Northampton, but also outlying towns. The campers enjoy arts and crafts, games, swimming, hiking and other field trips during a five-week program. Additionally, it maintains the Northville public beach providing life guards, swimming lessons, cleaning, and buoys and other safety equipment.
The Commission hires a number of high school and college-age men and women as camp counselors and life guards. They have provided the community a great service over the years. Unfortunately, these summer jobs will not exist this year.
Joint Youth Director, Kenneth Adamczyk stated “it brings great sadness for multiple reasons. The older youth missing out on jobs that help support their college and life goals as counselors and lifeguards is a huge loss. Also we ALL will miss the campers and beach visitors. The smiles it brings daily is such a reward in this position. Plus, we know the campers and visitors have been in a form of lock down and they would love to be able to participate and spend time with their friends.”
“This summer program has been a big part of the Northville and Northampton community since at least the 1940’s,” said Gritsavage. “It will be missed. But it will be back next summer!”
We are truly fortunate to be living in Northville during this pandemic! Isolation is the new normal for now, but as Americans and local residents living in such beauty and with such a strong sense of community, we have so much for which we can feel grateful.
Our community has rallied to help each other in so many ways. The merchants, the Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, the school food program, the online church services, and so many more programs and people are working together to see us through the period.
Safety Warriors Need Sewers
I have been asked by the “Safety Warriors,” our area mask-making team, to let the community know that more sewers are need to stitch masks for Northville/Edinburg/Sacandaga Park Communities. They have supplied more than 500 masks and caps to Saratoga Hospital, merchants and essential safety individuals to date!
Now their goal is to make masks to reach community individuals.
