Susquehannock Camps (here in NE Pennsylvania) were founded in 1905, and have continued through all these years being run by the same family, the Shafer's. This camp is accredited by the American Camping Association. A big majority of their camp teachers and coaches have been coming back each summer for over 20 years. Most of them were campers here when they were just a kid. Also, many of the campers who came back year after year, return during college summer break to work as junior counselors. All of this is a great testimony to the camp as a whole. The owners, returning campers, teachers, coaches, are all an integrated part of the camp, of this camp.

Camp Susquehannock for Girls (ages 7 through 17) is on a 750 acres wilderness site. The camp's lake, Lake Choconut, is entirely on their property and is a natural spring-fed lake of 80 acres or more. The cabins (for sleep-away) are rustic to say the least. They are log, built up off the ground, but you can see through the cracks and crevices---we heard the girls all love it. There is no TV. Electronic games, cellular phones, or computer equipment are not allowed. There is a phone in the main house, the nurses/medical cabin (there is a full-time live-in RN during the camping season and a Dr. on call who camps as well), the dining hall, the main lodge and that is it. This is camping we're talking about!

Camp Susquehannock for Boys (ages 7 through 11 at Junior Camp, and ages 12 through 17 at Hill Camp) has a long-standing reputation as a top athletic camp for children of all abilities. This camp is on approx. 1400 acres situated on spring-fed Lake Tripp. This camp was built after the original camp (for girls) so the cabins appear a bit more modern, but they are still rustic. This camp, like the other, has been built in a wilderness setting back in the Endless Mountains of North-East Pennsylvania. The boys camp features similar activities, but does include a climbing tower, low rope challenge course, and does group the

PROS: The best of day or sleepaway camping for your child
CONS: costly weekly or full session fees
