Tucked away on a country road in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains, Camp Green Lane has been one of Pennsylvania’s premier overnight camps since 1926. Camp Green Lane is a place for kids to leave the cares of the real world and the school year behind and enjoy just being kids.
Our dynamic program offers the best instruction and supervision in the “four A’s”: Athletics, Arts, Aquatics, and Adventure. Campers follow a carefully-constructed daily schedule filled with a mix of the four A’s, while also getting a chance to choose their own activities in the form of both a daily clinic period where they can enhance their knowledge of and broaden their strength in the sport of their choice; and a daily elective period where they can enjoy pursuing an interest of their choice at their own speed and in their own time. Our program structure ensures that our campers can immerse themselves in the full range of what we have to offer, getting to participate in their favorite activities while also trying new things.
This Pennsylvania overnight camp offers a wide range of special events, activities, and trips to spice up an already-exciting daily schedule. Trips include movies, ice skating, bowling, trampoline park, Dorney Park, Hershey Park and mini golf, just to name a few. The Greeks, our oldest campers, go on a special overnight trip that campers look forward to their entire camp career. We offer one-day, intensive, camps-within-a-camp in soccer, basketball, cooking, Ultimate Frisbee, SCUBA, and lacrosse to give campers who want some extra instruction the chance to focus on building their strengths in those areas. Our special events include Halloween in July, the Triathlon, camp shows, Olympics, Carnival, Birthday Meal, and, everyone’s favorite, Color War. Color War splits the camp into two teams – Green and White – who battle for seven days in sports, songs, skits, and spirit to see who will be victorious. Color War is truly the highlight of the summer.
Campers at this Pennsylvania overnight camp spend 7 weeks as part of bunks who eat, play, and sleep together, forging bonds of friendship that will last a lifetime. Our top-notch staff of counselors – many of whom have grown up with us at camp – are there to guide their campers through the summer, having fun with, mentoring, and learning from the children in their care. Our seven division supervisors (all of whom are teachers and parents) oversee 4-6 bunks each, ensuring that their campers are happy and healthy, and are in touch with parents regularly via phone and email.
Safety is of the utmost importance to us and, as such, our infirmary staff — a doctor, two RNs, and a “Camp Mom” – are available around-the-clock to handle whatever bumps and bruises come their way. Our dining hall provides three meals each day that focus on great taste while giving our campers the nutrition and energy they need to play all day. Our talented chefs can accommodate food preferences and allergies, and we have menus put together specifically for our vegetarian and gluten-free friends. We are also a nut-free campus so those with nut allergies can rest easy in our care.
Located an hour from Philadelphia, 90 minutes from both Baltimore and New York City, and about 2 hours from Long Island, Camp Green Lane is a place where time stands still. Whether it be for 4 or 7 magical weeks, our campers spend their days playing, learning, laughing, and making the kinds of memories and friendships that will last a lifetime!
