Cradle of Liberty Council is proud to provide two great facilities for the ultimate outdoor experience in Eastern Pennsylvania: Resica Falls Scout Reservation and Musser Scout Reservation.
Whether summer camping for a week to earn merit badges, or weekend camping as a Cub Scout Pack, our facilities offer a top-notch experience.
Situated in the beautiful Pocono Mountains, Resica Falls Scout Reservation is a 4200+ acre Scouting Paradise. Set in what seems like an endless track of mountain trails, clear streams, and waterfalls is an amazing program of activities for Scouts to enjoy for their summer camp experience.
Founded in 1957 by a joint effort between the Valley Forge and Philadelphia Councils to create a huge parcel of land for scouts to use for generations to come. Although the Valley Forge Council would become the sole proprietor of the property in 1965, these same two councils would merge in 1996 creating the Cradle of Liberty Council where Scouts from Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties would once again find themselves stewards of this wilderness treasure. The Council would later enter into a land trust agreement preserving the property forever as an undeveloped forest for Scouting use. In 2007, Resica Falls celebrated its 50th summer season of scout camping. Since its founding, tens of thousands of Scouts have enjoyed an experience among the hidden natural treasures creating memories that will last a lifetime.
The Musser Scout Reservation 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. It now includes Camp Hart, Camp Delmont and Camp Garrison.
The Cradle of Liberty Council, Natural Lands Trust, Montgomery County Lands Trust and Montgomery County signed a conservation easement permanently protecting over 1,200 acres of the Musser Scout Reservation. The easement is a perpetual, legally binding agreement to remove certain rights from the property owner. The effect of conservation easements is to provide permanent protection from future development while leaving the land in private ownership.
An important part of ensuring that your unit has a successful summer camp is attending the leaders meeting. During this meeting we go over all of the program and administration details that your unit will need to be able to help your scouts and their families prepare for camp.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MEETING WILL TAKE PLACE ON APRIL 21, 2014 at 7pm at the Valley Forge Middle School.
This is a change from the date published in the leader's guide.
Over the past few months, Camping Committee members at both the District and Council levels have worked to approve the following Camp Rental Policy for Scouting Groups, effective immediately. Please refer to it as your Scouting group, District, or Council event plans any weekend events in the future. Direct questions to the COL Camping Department.
