Camp Susquehannock was founded in 1905 by a teacher, George Carleton “King” Shafer, who was assigned to tutor a number of students over the summer. Believing that the pristine highlands of Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains would be more comfortable for everyone than suffering in the heat of the city, he brought all these students with him up to what is now Susquehannock. When not studying, they played baseball and swam in the cool waters of Tripp Lake.
Susquehannock continues to believe, over 110 years later, that fresh air, sunshine, and sports combine well with academic rigor for those campers who seek either to get ahead in school or who need remedial assistance. Some campers in the tutoring program are international campers engaged in English reading, speaking, and composition. With many teachers on staff, campers who need instruction in almost any subject can be accommodated.
Tutoring is offered as an extra at a rate of $45.00 per lesson for each subject. All our tutors are qualified teachers. Tutoring can be done three times or six times a week per subject. One can select a maximum of two subjects. For campers 12 years or older, we recommend tutoring only three times a week and in one subject.
Subjects offered include:
Math (Specify course and level)
Language Arts (Specify: Grammar, Writing, Conversation, Reading)
ESL (English Second Language) – We strongly suggest that first time campers who do not speak English as their first language should sign up for ESL
Sometimes other options are available upon request. Please call us ahead of time to ask if your needs can be accommodate.
