Camp Green Lane is located in Green Lane, Pennsylvania approximately 50 miles north of Philadelphia. A winding country road leads you to our front arch, beyond which lies 135-plus beautiful acres that include our private lake, two pools, fields and courts for every type of sport, arts and drama facilities, two ropes courses, and so much more.
Our facilities are modern and comfortable without sacrificing their rustic camp charm.
Our cabins are large, airy, and brightly painted for the highest level of comfort away from home. Exhaust fans keep the cabins cool, and each has its own bathroom with two toilets, two showers, and two sinks, all of which were updated in a camp-wide bathroom renovation project over the past two years. Each cabin is equipped with smoke detection devices.
Our dining room is more than a place to eat. At Camp Green Lane, the dining room is also a place for singing and cheering. We all eat at the same time, and meals are an opportunity for us to come together as a camp family. Campers and counselors sit together as a cabin for three meals a day, served family-style by waiters and waitresses who are our 15 and 16 year old campers.
We have a nutritious and flexible menu with lots of choices for our campers’ many tastes and eating habits. Our professional camp chefs prepare each meal, while special menus are also available, by request, for all campers. To help ensure the safety of our campers with allergies, our entire campus is Nut-Free.
Our state-of-the-art, air conditioned infirmary is staffed by three registered nurses, a camp Doctor and a “camp mom” 24 hours a day.
At the core of our daily schedule, campers spend most of the day playing outside. Even part of the evening is spent playing, as we have many lighted fields and courts to keep the games going after the sun goes down.

- The Dome: our indoor gymnasium

The fun isn’t limited only to dry land here at Camp Green Lane. Water sports comprise a major part of the schedule too. Campers spend daily swim periods in our two pools, where they are able to enjoy a diving board, multiple slides, water polo and aqua basketball equipment. At our lake, campers love spending their time swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. Several favorite lake activities involve our giant aqua jungle gym, where campers use the trampoline and slides and are able to literally walk on water.
Camp Green Lane offers an exceptional creative arts program. Campers regularly put on shows in the state-of-the-art GLOBE theater building, which is also the site of such special events as the Color War Sing and Friday night services.
The Lakeside Pavilion houses our Arts & Crafts program, as well as our sewing, ceramics, woodworking, and leather craft studios.
Housed elsewhere on campus are our dance and music studios, as well as a video suite for the most tech-savvy campers.
