it's off Interstate 78 just before you get to Cabels's comming out of Allentown. I have been to Goose Pond,(the Dinning Hall is a treat) Ockanickon, Tuckahoe and driven by Ressica Falls many times on the way up to Pecks Pond. The eastern part of PA is crawling with scout camps.(This message has been edited by OldGreyEagle)

our guys are a bunch of water babies. The Eagle already has a job as a lifeguard at a city pool and two others are taking the course in summer camp. Snorkeling cert is required for some camping trips and we have many certified divers. This would be the choice due to the coastal location:

you don't say what part of Jersey.

Camp Wakpominee is owned by Twin Rivers Council BSA.

 

Wakpominee is 20 minutes from lake George of Last of the Mohicans fame.

Judging by plates on cars half of NJ is in Lake George anyways.

Cmon up and try the camp out.

Just got back from Broad Creek Mem. Scout Res, arford county MD. Had a great time. They have a new camp director, first time in 20+ yrs. Old one was good, but things were stale. We've been there 5 yrs. in a row. Next yr we are going to a different camp. Only because we live 20 minutes from the camp. To easy for parent intervention.

But the camp is good. They have a great older boy program "Lost Pines", I highly recommend it.
