The 2024 Family Overnight Camping Trip at Camp Garrison will take place from April 19 to April 21, 2024.
Camp Garrison is a themed Cub Scout Camp at Musser Scout Reservation, which is located along the Unami Creek on over 1,400 acres of Marlborough Township, Pennsylvania. It is part of the largest contiguous forest in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
To accommodate everyone, we have several options for attending. Choose the one that works best for your family:
Come up on Friday evening and sleep over (in a tent) until Sunday morning.
Just come for Friday or Saturday evening, or only for the day Saturday. Saturday is when most of the activities take place. If you do, plan to arrive by 9:30AM in order to meet up with us and hike to the creek for fishing. Bring along your own lunch. We’ll have a make-your-own tacos for dinner and stay for the campfire. The day’s activities should wrap up by 9PM.
We’ll be at Camp Garrison from Friday, April 19 to Sunday, April 21, 2024.
Camp Garrison is located at 4021 Upper Ridge Rd., Pennsburg, PA 18073.
This year, we’ll be camping at the Fort Akela campsite at Camp Garrison. This campsite has a pavilion with tables and a kitchen (including stove and refrigerator), and full bathrooms.
