Many years ago there was a tennis camp on Majors Path, Southampton New York. The property was sold and according to Newsday, the lawsuits have begun. The neighbors are opposed to the camp for environmental reasons. The owner, Jay Jacobs, state Democratic Committee Chairman, said the camp would have 400 daytime campers, and up to 100 staffers for 10 weeks in the summer. There is room for 40 bunk houses for camp counselors who don’t live nearby but most of the staff will be local residents. He has indicated he would be updating all the old cesspools on the property with new septic tanks. The residents are concerned about the potential harm on the fragile ecosystem of Little Fresh Pond.
