Welcome to Family Camp
Welcome to our website for the Family Campground at Camp Swatara!
As we move towards Christmas 2017 and New Year’s 2018, please know that our Family Camping Center is closed until February 1st, 2018. If you have questions or need assistance, please call the main camp office at 717-933-8510, Option #1, and the office staff will be happy to assist you! Please note that we will not be responding to any calls, or voicemail messages, that are placed to the Camping Center Store or Office (717-933-5244), and that we will not be responding to emails during this time. We will resume operations February 1, at which time we will begin to accept online, written reservation requests. Church of the Brethren members may begin to place their reservation requests on February 1st. All others may begin to place their individual reservation requests on February 15th, 2018. All emails and reservations will be date and time-stamped, and they will be processed in the order in which they are received.
We hope that you will plan to come join us during the 2018 camping season! Our family-friendly campground has lots to offer! We have two playgrounds and lots of open space for recreational activities including soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball, 4-square, BMX Bike Trail, shuffleboard and ping pong. We also have an 18-hole Miniature Golf Course and lots of hiking trails on our 750+ acres. On the Wet ‘n Wild side, we have our own Splash Pad, and we share a Junior Olympic-Sized Swimming Pool with our Resident Youth Campers. Our 4-5 acre lake affords campers the opportunity to go boating and/or fishing, and we carry bait and tackle in our Camp Store. Church Worship services are scheduled for Sunday Mornings at 10:00 AM from Memorial Day through to Labor Day weekend.
Did you know that our Family Campground is just one of the three programs of ministry that we offer here at this location? Camp Swatara also offers a Youth Program in their Residential Camp Center, along with a rental and retreat area to the West of our Family Campground. If you would like more information about these other programs, please explore and investigate our website further or call the Main Office at 717-933-8510, Option #1. We hope that you will find this information to be helpful and that you chose to make Camp Swatara one of your favorite destinations for rest and relaxation, spiritual renewal, and reflection about God’s call upon your lives.
