This postcard folder was sold at the camp Trading Post in the early 1960s. It was printed by Dexter Press and features photos by Jerry Moran, a noted photographer who did a lot of work for Boy's Life Magazine.

Here's the text from the inside front cover:

The Nassau County Council, Boy Scouts of America, owns and operates three year ‘round training camps. Two of the camps are shown in this folder. The third camp, The Harkness Training Center, located in the heart of Nassau County, provides facilities for leadership training, year ‘round camping and Cub Scout picnics.

Camp Wauwepex located at Wading River, Long Island, is endowed with unequaled scenic and natural beauty. Its 640 acres completely surround a most beautiful fresh water lake, providing the ultimate in swimming and boating facilities. The camp is operated in three divisions, each with its own modern well equipped Dining Hall, as well as swimming, program and activity areas. Each division of the camp accommodates 350 Scouts and Leaders, and has its owned Trained Staff to assist Troops in planning and executing their own camp program.

The Onteora Scout Reservation, located at Livingston Manor, New York, in the Catskill State Preserve, provides the setting for the ultimate in camping. Rolling hills, woodland streams, a 65 acre lake and trails through hardwood forests to outpost campsites, all invite the camper and provide the setting for real scout Advancement.

Onteora provides facilities for diversified food service to Troops, Central Dining Hall, Heater Stack service to Campsites and a "Country Store" handling all types of meats and groceries.

Onteora, with its 2400 acres of forests, also provides the setting and facilities for the Explorer Base. The Base Camp provides Camp Staff Training, as well as outfitting and training for horseback riding, canoeing and mountain climbing trips.

Several of these pictures were also released as individual postcards.

Incidentally, Jerry Moran's son came across this page and mentioned it to his father. Jerry and I spoke and he mentioned he didn't have a copy of the folder, so I sent him one. Isn't the Internet wonderful?
