The Camp consists of 286 acres with large meadows for games, a pond for boating, swimming, and hiking trails. The highlights of the Camp are a suspension bridge over Big Pocono Creek which is suitable for tubing, fly fishing, and environmental studies, as well as “the ridge” with its majestic view of the Pocono mountains. There are programs for all ages beginning at the end of June: First Timers (K-1 accompanied by a parent), Beginners (2nd - 3rd), Juniors (4th - 6th), Junior Highs (7th - 9th), and Senior Highs (through 12th), as well as a number of adventure camps. Want to see the camp in person? Visit their website or call the Kirkwood office (215-732-1842).
