Pocono Springs’ unique 5-week program was created to provide families with what they’ve been asking for: a full-season camp experience where campers thrive, while still leaving time for family activities, specialty camps, and other summer fun outside of camp. Pocono Springs is a family of our own, and we recognize and value the need for flexibility, and the importance of family and leisure time over the summer.
Pocono Springs runs one five-week session for all campers. The best camp experiences happen over time, and five weeks allows campers ample time to get into their own rhythm at camp, grow in the skills they are developing, and form friendships and memories to last a lifetime. Additionally, when all campers start and finish together, cabin dynamics flourish. At Pocono Springs, we don’t have campers coming in to cabins that have already been established, and we don’t have campers who make a best friend, and then they leave. Every camper starts and finishes on the same day and gets the same full-season experience.
Yes, we do have a Visiting Day. In 2019, this day is Saturday, July 13th. Visiting Day is a wonderful time for parents and campers alike as we have our activities open for campers to show what they have learned throughout the summer. We serve a terrific lunch for everyone and encourage families to meet one another. Parents will have the opportunity to meet our amazing staff, and it is also a great day for siblings to see camp in action and get excited to join the PSC family in future summers. This day has been designed with careful consideration to ensure the most successful summers possible for our campers. Please feel free to give us a call if you would like to know more about Visiting Day.
We offer a full refund for 30 days after registration is complete.
The only additional cost at camp would be for campers who want to participate in the Advanced Golf program. In this program, campers have the opportunity to play 9 holes at a local golf course. Please feel free to give us a call if you would like to know more about this program.
Pocono Springs is not a uniform camp. We maintain a simple, down-to-earth environment without an emphasis on clothing. Clothing should be casual and comfortable. Camp families are required to purchase a modest amount of Pocono Springs logo’d clothing to be worn for out-of-camp trips and intercamp sporting events.
For special trips off camp, campers may want to have a small amount of spending money for snacks or souvenirs. Our suggestion is $30-50 per camper. Unused funds are sent home at the end of camp.
