The Camp Susquehannock location lends itself to a variety of outdoor activities. Many of these activities engender self-reliance and nurture a respect for the environment.

The Climbing Tower/Zipline is one of the most popular camp attractions. Campers usually climb the tower as a cabin group, and cabin mates support and cheer for one another as they strive to reach the top. This activity encourages teamwork and goal setting, as well as a sense of achievement. Certified camp personnel run and monitor all climbs.

The Camp Susquehannock grounds also include many nature walks and hiking trails where campers learn about their natural surroundings in nature study groups and develop a respect for the environment.

Once per session, each cabin group experiences an overnight camping trip on camp property. After a hike to the campsite, campers are taught about building a fire, cooking safely, and sleeping in the outdoors. These experiences are so popular that many campers sign up for the optional overnights offered at the end of each session.

Campers who are 14 years of age and older have the opportunity to participate in a canoe trip on the Delaware River. This is a wonderful day trip spent paddling through canyons, steering through small rapids, and peacefully enjoying their time on the river.
