Select Timber Harvest at Camp Karoondinha
Caution on use of Camp K
The Susquehanna Council has contracted to harvest timber in the western section of camp to thin the forest as a forest management measure in that part of camp. This section of camp is entirely forested area. The harvesting started on September 15; the western section of camp will be off limits for use for any activity until the harvesting is complete. The off-limits area includes most of the Boundary Trail, with the closed section marked by signs. All the facilities and main activity areas at camp are available for use and not within the off-limits area.
Note: the logging trucks will be using Thomas Dam Rd for access to and from the harvest area so extra caution is advised when using that road.
Please visit our new Scouting Safely pages
Few youth organizations encompass the breadth, volume, and diversity of physical activity common to Scouting, and none enjoy a better safety record. Check the links in our MORE menu above for more information about the programs and policies that BSA and the Susquehanna Council have implemented to keep our youth and adult volunteer leadership safe and join us in our commitment to safety in scouting.
The Susquehanna Council, Boy Scouts of America, serves more than 2,100 youth through the leadership of 1,000 adult volunteers. Scouting provides programs to youth in five counties in Central Pennsylvania – Clinton, Lycoming, Northumberland, Snyder, and Union. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Thank you to the NRA Foundation for selecting the Susquehanna Council and Camp Karoondinha this year for the Grant. We received .22 ammunition, shotgun ammunition, and arrows to help us overhaul our program moving forward. From all of us at the Susquehanna Council, Thank you!
