Description

Camp Choconut is a residential boys' camp or overnight camp in northeast Pennsylvania that was founded in 1896 as one of the first summer camps in the country. It provides a setting for boys where outdoor activities such as camping, backpacking, canoeing, and sports help to instill the values of cooperation, teamwork, responsibility, and friendship. Our camp also teaches archery, swimming, canoeing, hiking, construction, fishing, woodworking, and our legendary "big games," some of which are 100 years old. Our camp philosophy is to "grow the whole boy." Click here to view our online brochure. Our 86th season will be a six-week session from June 26- August 7, 2010. A concurrent three-week session is available from June 26- July 17, 2010. The second half offers a multi-day canoe trip on a local river and the "Villa Hunt," a three-day game of hide-and-seek on and around our square-mile campus.Camp Choconut offers a safe place for boys to explore in a clean, natural setting under the supervision of counselors who are carefully chosen as good role models. Our goal is to create a safe, supportive, and fun community based on cooperation, simplicity, and responsibility. Our overnight camp or sleep-away camp allows for the boys to experience living away from home in a safe and friendly environment.
