The Girl and Boy Scouts of America’s popularity has seen many peaks and valleys over the past 110 years. As you can probably imagine, the next three to five years aim to be one of the most desirable stretches in scouting history. Millions of Americans, including those between the ages of five and 18, are rediscovering the allure of outdoor recreation. Many activities, such as hiking, canoeing, bicycling, and rock climbing, have witnessed a meteoric rise in popularity amongst adolescents and preteens. Thankfully for New York City residents, the most beloved all-inclusive Girl and Boy Scout camps in PA are only a two-hour drive from the George Washington Bridge.
We’d like to welcome another generation of Scouts to Woodloch, the top-rated family resort in the U.S. We offer a wide variety of all-inclusive perks, not to mention various merit badges, STEM activities, and community service opportunities!
The Best Girl and Boy Scout Camps in PA: Discover Woodloch
Many New Yorkers search for “Girl (or Boy) Scout camps near me” without much direction. Luckily, some of those researchers stumble upon Woodloch Resort, home to the most extensive Girl and Boy Scout camps in PA. We’re a family-focused destination that provides homegrown programming and over 1,200 acres of sheer Pocono Mountain wilderness. Most Boy and Girl Scout destinations on the East Coast focus on one unique team-building activity: whitewater rafting, rock climbing, or canoeing. However, Woodloch’s team masterfully curates dozens of activities that promote community outreach, physical exercise, and skill-building in several different factions.
All of our Girl and Boy Scout camps in PA’s Pocono Mountains include four key perks: 1) up to three daily meals, 2) comfortable, sizable accommodations, 3) countless social activities, and 4) rousing nightly entertainment. Of course, there’s a lot more that goes into these enthralling, educational Boy and Girl Scout trips, including history lessons, relaxation, and non-merit exploration. Customizable packages can vary in length, lodging type, seasonality, and, of course, preferred patch-earning activities.
Merit Badges and Potential Team-Building Activities
Below, you’ll find a shortlist of patch-earning activities, ranging from the Woodloch-famous Summer Olympics to various crafting workshops and sporting contests. Unlike most Girl or Boy Scout Camps in PA, we also provide ample opportunities to simply have fun and bond. Mid-day possibilities include the archery range, a climbing wall, mini-golf, batting cages, bumper cars, and so much more!
Woodloch’s 1,200-acre, Troop-friendly resort is a short drive from New York and Philadelphia. Depending on the season, rates start at just $180 per Scout, per night. Please call us today at 800-453-8263 (option #2) to get a quote.
