Camp History Hike

On July 22, 1943, a group hiked the hills and woods of the current camp property surveying it as a possible site for a new camp. By the end of the day, they were in agreement that this was the spot!  Relive this walk in the woods 75 years later on Sunday, July 22nd with Camp Historian, Jon Wenger. Jon will share parts of the history of camp that happened in various locations as the group hikes together on camp's extensive trail system.

Meet at the Family Camping Center Fellowship Hall to begin our hike.

Please RSVP for this event by calling the camp office at 717-933-8510, or by sending an email to info@campswatara.org.
