2024 Camp to Camp Hike

Event Details

The camp to camp hike returns in 2024, just in time for the 50th Anniversary of the Susquehanna Council!

Pioneered in 1955 and offered occasionally since then, the 27-mile backpacking hike wends its way from Camp Karoondinha to Seven Mountains Scout Camp from July 8-9 and from Seven Mountains Scout Camp to Camp Karoondinha July 15-16.

Youth ages 14 and up and adult leaders will depart from their respective camps and hike to Poe Paddy State Park, where they will camp overnight. They will continue the hike the next day and arrive in their opposite camp to be shuttled back to their starting places. They will earn a rare and collectible patch! The cost of the full hike is $25.

Day hikers may complete the first day of a hike, have dinner, and get shuttled back to their starting places (no pain, no patch, though). The cost for day hikers is $14.

As with any exciting adventure, there is some risk, so medical staff are needed and may register for free. These would be Scouters who hold current Wilderness First Aid certification or are RNs, EMTs, paramedics, physician assistants, or medical doctors.

Those hiking the full hike--from one camp to another--will need to carry a backpack with water and ways to treat water, snacks, lunches, shelter, sleeping gear, and the 10 Scout essentials. Dinner on Monday, breakfast on Tuesday, and the group tent site at Poe Paddy are included in the price (plenty of trees for hammocks!).

Overnight hikers must provide the BSA Annual Health and Medical Record parts A, B, and C. It will be returned to you at the end of the event. Day hikers need only provide parts A and B. 

Those who are hiking in order to complete a merit badge requirement, say for Hiking, Camping, or Backpacking, may need to carry extra food or equipment according to that badge's requirements.

The hikes and dinner are rain or shine. In case of severe thunderstorms, an alternative route is available west of Poe Paddy to avoid the ridgetop for the duration of the storm.
