SELECT TIMBER HARVEST AT CAMP KAROONDINHA

Cautions on use of Camp K

The removal of trees for the harvesting of timber at Camp K is complete; however, some restoral and cleanup work continues.  Grass seed has been spread along all roads and skid trails to stabilize the soil layer, reduce the invasion of undesirable plants, and increase forage production. Some improvements are pending to improve the drainage on sections of Boundary Road and a road in the western section.

 

Thus, the following restrictions are in effect to allow the surface of roads and skid trails to stabilize and the grass to take root:

All vehicles are prohibited from using Boundary Road.

Walking on Boundary Road and skid trails in the western and southern sections of camp is strongly discouraged, especially by groups of individuals.

The council will modify or discontinue these restrictions as soon as possible and definitely before the start of resident camp. 

 

The use of all interior roads in the main area of the camp is unrestricted, allowing access to all campsites and facilities.

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 out the links below 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.

Adventure Awaits

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.

The Susquehanna Council is home to beautiful Camp Karoondinha along Penns Creek in western Union County. Each summer we provide exceptional programming to Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Venturers. We are building character in the youth of our communities, one child at a time!  Click below to secure your spot at Camp K for this summer!

Now is the perfect time to join a Cub Pack (all youth grades K-5) or Scouts BSA Troop (all youth ages 11-17). There is no obligation for attending a few meetings just to see what it’s all about!
 

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!
