Two Programs, One Philosophy
The Susquehannock Camps have encouraged the moral, social, and physical development of young campers since 1905. Through a combination of athletics, adventure activities, family-style dining, and cabin life, campers create life-long friendships and discover their own potential. Campers embrace tolerance and respect for others, learn how to deal gracefully with conflict, and develop a sense of fair play.
The experienced staff runs a program designed to engender self-reliance, self-confidence, sportsmanship, and leadership. Operating as brother and sister camps, Camp Susquehannock for Boys and Camp Susquehannock for Girls run independent programs for campers ages 7 to 16 years old across a breathtaking 1200-acre campus located in the Endless Mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania. Each camp has its own individual traditions that its campers hold dear. The common factor to both camps is that a summer at Susquehannock pays dividends that last a lifetime.
Moral Development - Using fun-focused athletics and adventure activities as the medium to teach life lessons, Susquehannock promotes personal integrity, team leadership, mutual respect, fair play, and learning to take risks in a safe environment. Susquehannock also encourages a respect for the environment and for the impact each of us has on it.
Social Development - Campers at The Susquehannock Camps learn community, diversity, and shared responsibility through team sports, cabin life, and family-style dining. The emphasis is on traditional values such as honesty, integrity, loyalty, and compassion. Campers form friendships at camp that last a lifetime.
Physical Development - The Susquehannock Camps encourage individual campers to develop their skills, fitness level, and individual interests while teaching the value of a healthy lifestyle.
Environment - Situated on a beautiful spring-fed glacial lake, The Susquehannock Camps are nestled in the magnificent rolling hills of northeastern Pennsylvania. Whether playing on the open fields, hiking through the surrounding woods, or spending a night under the star-filled sky, Susquehannock nurtures in each camper a deep respect for the environment.
The Susquehannock Camps encourage the moral, social, and physical development of campers, primarily through the medium of team and individual sports. The program is designed to engender self-reliance, self-confidence, and leadership ability. In athletic competition, at the dining table, and in cabin life campers are taught tolerance and respect for others, how to deal gracefully with conflict, and a sense of fair play.
