Brief Overview:

Explorer camp is a great opportunity for campers who like to rough it a little bit. They will be sleeping outside, cooking their own meals over a fire, and enjoying the beauty of creation. Campers will still be able to participate in all the activities offered by Penn-York Camp, but will also go on a two day overnight trip to an offsite location.


- Explorer 1 - Will be taking their offsite trip to Blue Run Rocks. This is a beautiful location not far from camp where campers will have the opportunity to try their hand at rock climbing, or simply just explore the beautiful area. The round trip hike to Blue Run is right around 3 miles, so this is a perfect option for campers who simply want to try camping out.

- Explorer 3 - Will be taking their offsite trip to Ole Bull State Park. This is another beautiful location, where campers will be able to swim, hike, and just have fun.


Parents will drop their children off for camp Sunday afternoon, and then pick them up again Friday evening. Explorer camp is supervised by a director, and then additional summer staff are brought out depending on the number of campers who register. Once registered, a parent can expect to receive an information packet and appropriate forms from the camp via email three weeks prior to the start of camp. For additional information concerning safety, medications, and how PYC's summer camps are run, please check out the "FAQ" page of our summer camp tab or give us a call.

- Explorer 2 - Will be taking a three day and two night offsite trip. They will spend their first night stargazing at Cherry Springs State Park, one of the darkest areas on the east coast. From there the group will backpack part of the Susquehannock Trail to Lyman Run State Park where there will be opportunities to swim, relax, and explore. This will be a more grueling trip, so we highly recommend that registrants be in good physical condition; prepared to carry their belongings in a backpack for a period of two days.
