The Pocono Springs property has a rich history of providing unforgettable summers for campers and counselors alike. The picturesque lakefront campus welcomed its first campers in 1935 and served as the home for great summer camps, including Pocono Highlands Camp for over 65 years, until closing its gates in 2009.
In 2015, the owners rediscovered this hidden gem of a camp. They fell in love with its natural beauty and knew it was a place that needed to be brought back to life and become an extraordinary place in the lives of children again. They set out renovating the property, developing the program, and most importantly, creating their vision for Pocono Springs as a special place for campers and staff, and as America’s only five-week residential summer camp.
The Pocono Springs team has taken time, care, and extreme pride in breathing life back into the property. From the tree-lined drive, to its open fields, to the private spring-fed lake, the natural beauty of Pocono Springs remained through the years. Enhancing the abundant picture-perfect scenery, we are thrilled about the many facility and programming updates made to welcome our first summer of Pocono Springs campers in 2017!
Every building on the property underwent a complete renovation, inside and out. We added new tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts, a new hockey rink, and all new sports equipment. Our private lake in the heart of camp was outfitted with new docks, jet skis, canoes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, a sand beach, and an aqua playground. We constructed an outdoor heated pool, a challenge course, a zip line that soars across Reflection Lake, and so much more! We are proud to be the caretakers of a place that has been so special to so many, and look forward to sharing all that Pocono Springs has to offer with you and your family.
