Family Camp 2019
This is an exciting opportunity for your family to experience the scenic outdoors and fun adventures at one of the many camp properties of the Laurel Highlands Council. Family Vacation Camp is a weekend to hike, enjoy nature, read a book, relax, visit a local attraction or participate in many other exciting activities.
To participate in Family Camp, at least one member of the family must be a registered Cub Scout, Scout, Venturer, or Explorer. Families attend together (Guardians and children); this is not a unit-organized event. Families register as a family, arrive as a family, and enjoy the weekend together as a family. If several families from a unit want to attend together, that's great...just have each family register themselves as a family.
As a members-only activity, your family is assured of a more peaceful and pleasant experience than you might have at a public campground, not to mention more elbow-room and friendly faces throughout the property.
Families can enjoy a variety of activities such as shooting sports, field games, and more. The weekend will be very loosely scheduled so your family can pick and choose from family camp activities, some will offer self-guided trips to visit local attractions,
This is a family event, not a Scout event where advancement and other Scout activities are part of the program.
It’s a weekend of open program; you won’t find a rotation of stations like day camp or summer camp.
WHEN & WHERE: Laurel Highland Council Camps
October 12 & 13 Camp Twin Echo New Florence Pa.
Plan to arrive Saturday morning between 8am – 9am. Please do not arrive early – staff will still be setting up camp. Program ends with Closing on Sunday; please plan to check out no later than 10am that afternoon.
You will be able to drive a vehicle to a spot on the road near your campsite to unload gear. Please DO NOT drive into the campsites, as this can cause damage. Once you have unloaded, your vehicle will need to be parked in either the Main or Overflow parking lots. A vehicle-free camp helps maintain a camplike setting and improves safety for all campers.
There will be an orientation at the dining hall at 10:00am on Saturday Morning. Join us for a brief introduction to the staff and activities
